MySpace has added a new program to give artists and celebrities even more ways to use the popular social networking site to promote themselves.

The "Artist-on-Artist" community will feature video clips of musicians, actors, sports figures and other celebrities interviewing each other.

Examples include former Faith No More frontman Mike Patton and actor Danny DeVito, rapper Mos Def and former Vice President Al Gore, musician Mike Watt with the Red Hot Chili Pepper's Anthony Kiedis and Flea, Incubus' Mike Einzinger and actor Jason Schwartzman, and many others.

The concept is lifted rather directly from the Sundance Channel's "Iconoclasts" series, now in its second season, which has featured such pairings as R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe with celebrity chef Mario Batali.
