    imho she would benefit in life & music if she would be in the studio for a day or two with Björk or Imogen Heap....but that will never happen....
    ....but never say never.....as you can pretend you never read this msg....:wink::bow:

    Another interesting thing I saw mentioned that when she first got signed they wanted her to bail on her demo producer and work with their picks. She managed turn everything to gold including some stuff form the demo writer. As a result in the followup they gave her complete control. Doesn't matter what anyone thinks about the genre or sounds, the midus touch stands in a league of its own, never mind the age she made it happen at, or the fact she crossed genres. Bjork and Imogen would be the next logical step imo also :speaker::speaker:

    What ordinary people actually do when they meet famous people.



    Taylor Swift is around 5:57.

    If you want to work on the cold side of the studio glass, you had better get used to music you don't relate to, because around 80% of your paying customers will be making music you wouldn't buy and you have to give them the best, just like every other customer. If you're working on the hot side of the glass, anybody who has what it takes to get up in front of an audience and actually make any kind of magic work, deserves respect.

    I'm afraid by the words ordinary and famous, one blood man, nobody is famous than others because a human stay an human, they are just here to amuse the mass, nothing famous here my 2 cent, i understand what you mean and it's your opinion, shared with million of people, but in fact that don't mean it's a good thing, maybe not in fact because a lot of people think they can become like their "idols" it's like a religion in some cases, for me these "famous" known people are very dangerous for humanity, they are here to mislead humans, and don't write that by religious or spiritual thing, it's just a fact, i feel sorry for them, because they have no liberties, they says have control in fact they have what the industry want to give to them...

    I'm laughing a lot with the jokes, but for a top-world-best-seller she's not that bad. We've had much worse ones...

    Obviously...And ? I can clearly still have taste about it.
    Are you joking ? I need to respect anybody who's music I don't like because his/her audience likes him/her ? Wtf does that mean. I should respect paid trained "pêrformers" because they do what they are paid to do ?
    Why ? And why not respect "bohemians" too then if you have those generous views ? You think they perform alone in front of the mirror ?

    I used to work at a popular store by LAX and got favorable reviews from being able to help celebrities without being distracted. Was mostly because I don't recognize folks in person, but was often informed of who they were from excited co-workers.

    Swift actually had a big fall out with Spotify over them 'canibalizing' her album.
    And by the by, she's the daughter of two a list bankers: Scott Kingsley and her mother Andrea a fund marketing consultant.
    Just saying .... Okay back to Lenon.

    @Talmi, @wasgedn ..I'm not sure, but I think we agree 90%-ish on what's going on. And that's a lot! ;) One thing - I'd like a suggestion on what should (and can) we do about it? (I gave one.. and I know it sounds harsh, srryy). Another thing is that I don't find this "somebody behind", "financial machinery" phenomena so surprisingly new. Forget about the 90s, 80s, 70s.. let's go back 500 years (some quotes from bio's):

    "Michelangelo had a complicated relationship with the Medici family.. ...rulers of his home city of Florence. The Medici rose to prominence as Florence's preeminent bankers, some of which was used for patronage of the arts.. ..Despite pauses and turbulence in the relationship, it was commissions from the Medici Popes that produced some of Michelangelo's finest work.."

    250 years later, year 1791 (and as we're talking music here)
    "Mozart's last year was, until his final illness struck, a time of great productivity.. ..financial situation finally began to improve. It appears that wealthy patrons in Hungary and Amsterdam pledged annuities to Mozart in return for the occasional composition. He is thought to have benefited from the sale of dance music written in his role as Imperial chamber composer.." and "..Mozart hardly ever composed or played music ‘for the sheer joy of it’; he was constantly looking for well-paid commissions.."

    And you know one can give you pages of examples of this politics, banking, elitism, mass-manipulation, over-control,.. driven machinery from present and the past. The things that differs is world population 500 mio in 1500 and 7.7 billion in 2018 and the amount of (true or false) information that can be pushed to the masses. The rest is just human nature and you know - people are people..;)
