So it happened…It finally happened! I have been spending the last month or so…OK let’s stay real, the last YEAR or SO – ALL of 2017, trying to understand the Industry. I was trying to justify why I subject myself to this sort of torture.
There really is no such thing as NORMAL when speaking about the Music Industry. The picture of Amy Wino..uh, I mean Amy Winehouse looks like a cross between Dennis Rodman and Boy George (which I truly believe may really be the same person). Almost looks like well, SICK! The Music Industry is just NOT right people!
This post would be longer than the track marks on Amy’s arm if I tried to cover her whole story about going to rehab, not going to rehab. C’mon people, she even sang a song about it for Lepperchaun’s sake! SHE’S NOT GOING!
She already stated that in the song, Daddy made her go to rehab and she said, no, no, NO! I think we should just leave her alone, she likes looking like something that Steven Speilberg created in his twisted mind or one of his horror movies.
I have finally also came up with an idea of what to do with Michael jackson’s Never never land, when he loses it to the $23 mil lawsuit, the amount in which he first owed on the loan. I think we should develop the land and make a nice cozy property for all these poor strung out rockstars that are “down and out in Beverly hills”!
An even better idea would be to “house” all of them there, and allow the public to come for guided tours, a real life wax museum of sorts! I think I better “copyright” that idea, how much do you want to make a bet, we will soon have a place called, “Lost in Never-Neverland”.
Over the years of me writing, dabbling with music, being a mom, wife and friend, I have just seen the world travelling at a scary speed down the toilet bowl. I am now convinced that the Music industry is partly to blame, after examing the photos of Eddie Van Halen yeah I’m shocked too!), Brittany Spears, Michael Jackson, Lindsay Lohan and Amy Wino, how could you disagree?
The people or musicians that seem to stay sane, are those that just do it for fun, not fame. Eddie van halen is a legendary rockstar, but by that photo above, I swear I saw him last week at the bus stop and I gave him a dollar!
Nickleback wrote a song about it, “I wanna be a rockstar” and somewhere in his brilliant lyrics say, ” The girls come easy and the drugs come cheap, and we’ll stay skinny cus we just won’t eat”, not to mention the next verse, “That everyone has a drug dealer on speed dial”.
I don’t know about you, but the thought of aging a zillion years, weighing 67 pounds and not being able to remember what gender I am…just so I can be a rockstar, doesn’t sound too good to me.
Now I am sure I have sound of “sour grapes” in my words, and maybe I do a bit. I am thinking though, that it just was not the life for me, this is way more fun, to be able to sit back and READ the “latest dictionary of today’s who’s who”.
