usher1 After Usher appears on Idol, he accuses them of killing the music industry!

What did he ACTUALLY say?

Usher said ‘American Idol’  and it’s rival shows are making talented singers into celebrities, then casting them aside.  He says, “The true art form of music is being lost because it seems so easy that everyone can do it and that it can happen overnight.  Television is a lie.  It can’t happen overnight.  The artist who thinks that it can just comes and goes.  The reason why great singers cannot exist in this time is maybe because they’re not properly managed and maybe they don’t understand the full gamet of what being an entertainer is.”

He adds, “We’re dealing with an industry that is slowly but surely dying, everyday.  There’s the record companies that are mass producing these versions of these people; versions of this broken art.  While it works, because it sells records, it damages the business.”

WOW!!!  Do you agree with Usher?

    No, not necessarily. These people who are working to become a star on these shows might not have an opportunity otherwise. Many are young single parents that may never get to meet the *right* people so to speak. In the end many of them get taken under the wing of someone who is of importance to the field. I believe that there is one Justin Bieber that you found on youtube and made him a star. I believe it was the same sort of thing. Don’t get me wrong, I adore JB, but had it not been for you and JT he may still be posting videos on youtube for hits!
