Consquently, this is where I shall segway into my gripe when the modern industry: The corporate-yuppie fucks who control the major labels are only concerned with instant return. They could give a fuck about artistic integrity.
Their only concern is lining their pockets to buy copious amounts of cocaine and vacation homes; therefore, not only is the music suffering, but the artists are too. Winehouse is a perfect example, because she was crafted to be a one-trick pony not to be remembered in 2 years.
When an artist has a single as big as "Rehab" it's extremely hard to break out of it constrictive confines. Not to mention, I'm 97% sure I saw her smoking with a crackpipe on Youtube.
The sad part is that people are eating this shit up. Personally, I don't get it. I don't see what the fuck is so entertaining about watching someone destroy their life.
I think by the time Amy gets her shit together the public will have moved on to another fleeting obsession.
1. Coincidently, both singers happen to be British.
