[Blind Gossip] This legendary, over-50 recording artist wants to release a new album… but is disgusted by the shenanigans of the music industry! He singled out Jay Z and Beyonce‘s Tidal as especially problematic.
It used to be so simple. You sold a record, you got credit for selling a record. You sold an album, you got credit for selling an album.
Now it’s all bullsh*t. There’s streaming and digital downloads and You Tube views. The numbers are easy to manipulate. Someone gives away a million records and they tell everyone they sold a million. What kind of fake sh*t is that?
Don’t even get me started on Tidal. Jay Z and Beyonce should be embarrassed for that giant turd. They act like they’re helping artists when they’re really restricting them with “exclusive” deals. They’re con artists. They fake their numbers. Then they put up sh*t like Kanye’s crap fashion shows. The day Tidal disappears, I’m gonna throw one big f*cking party!
