Joss Stone cree que la piratería está genial

Ya había escuchado algo de Joss Stone, pero tras leer este artículo, me he bajado su último disco siguiendo los consejos de ella misma. Y es que esta guapa chica no se deja influir por la industria del CD y tiene claras sus ideas. Algunas perlas que más valdría a algunos escucharlas para darse cuenta de cómo les están comiendo el cerebro.

After the show a reporter asked her what she thinks of piracy, and people who download her songs off the Internet. Her response baffled the reporter, as she simply told him: “I think it’s great…” There was an awkward silence for a few seconds, the reporter probably expected to hear something else from her. “Great?,” he said.

“Yeah, I love it. I think it’s brilliant and I’ll tell you why,” Stone continued. “Music should be shared. [...] The only part about music that I dislike is the business that is attached to it. Now, if music is free, then there is no business, there is just music. So, I like it, I think that we should share.”

“It’s ok, if one person buys it, it’s totally cool, burn it up, share it with your friends, I don’t care. I don’t care how you hear it as long as you hear it. As long as you come to my show, and have a great time listening to the live show it’s totally cool. I don’t mind. I’m happy that they hear it.”

Stone went on to say that most artists have probably been “brainwashed” by the record labels, when they discourage their fans from downloading music.

Y volvemos a decir por enésima vez, el compartir archivos beneficia a la gran mayoría de los artistas. Cuanta más música escucha la gente, a más conciertos van. ¿La industria de la música en crisis? No, la industria del CD sí que está en crisis.
