Regardless of where she may personally stand income wise, she's quite right in regard to the industry no longer in a position to sustain and groom new artists like it once did. Napster and the internet were certainly damaging and one can't help but wonder what might have been had the labels and bigwigs bought into the idea sooner instead of sending in the lawyers, panic controllers and whatnot.

However IMO the reason for the music industry being where it's at can't be blamed exclusively on internet piracy (albeit it's clear that's probably the largest chunk of hurt right there), but there's so much competition now, options such as quick access to shows and movies and of course the biggest of em all, console and online GAMING has taken the lead and the focus away from music.

Music in its current form is now too often relegated to background noise for other entertainment options. And that's a crying shame :(
