Note to washed up rock stars everywhere: Right after you make a record that is a sad warning to your fans that you are too old to make punk rock. Don’t be a basketcase and go on a huge, slaphappy rant to the main company that props up your bad imitation of your old records. Rule numero uno in promoting your sad, twilight career is that Clear Channel is the one mainstream outlet that always stands by the musicians who once made great records and keeps pushing their later crappy material down the throat of those who listen to their radio stations. It would be a really good idea to not remind them you are not “Justin Fucking Bieber” because they may notice that your past few records have been dookie, stop playing you and then your career will go kerplunk. But if you don’t act like a nimrod after your 21st century breakdown and enter rehab to apologize for your shenanigans, your corporate puppet master will probably accept this as an apology and keep propping up your crappy new record.
Remember when the music industry started suing fans for illegally downloading music because they were too stupid to figure out how to control piracy? IT”S BACK! The rocket scientists at the metal label Century Media have decided to sue 7,000 fans of band’s on their label and think somehow the results of suing fans who go to shows, buy merch and have friends who do the same will somehow gain them more money than just making smarter business decisions and adapting to a changing business. They are so proud of this idea, they haven’t even posted it in their news section. Yes, this worked out so well last time, it is a fantastic idea to keep up this practice. Have fun with your sinking ship, as the fans of your label and the bands turn against you. Assholes.
Hey we just met Carly Rae Jepsen and it isn’t too crazy that her first week sales suck. Pop music fans have gotten used to one-hit-wonders and terrible albums with filler and two singles at most. Pop acts need to prove they give their fans a good record before they can sell records that fans haven’t heard yet. Better luck next time Carly. Maybe a sex tape will help? Oh, wait.
The chance to rekindle your relationship with your Internet girlfriend from 2006 is upon us! The Justin Timblerlake powered MySpace is attempting to bring sexy back in the form of a good looking, photo-based MySpace. We will see if they can capitalise on the fact that no one enjoys being on Facebook and get back together with their old annoying friend. My guess is…
