Just like any other industry, the music industry have its own dirty little but influencial secrets. ‘Payola’ being the most common underhand practise many more have come to existance and are being practised.

Record companies and managers would bribe radio DJ’s to give their artists radio play.  Although illegal, this practice has never stopped and continues to be used today, albeit in more subtle forms. 

Do you Know what is Payola?  Payola, in the music industry, is the illegal practice of payment or other inducement by record companies for the broadcast of recordings on commercial radio in which the song is presented as being part of the normal day’s broadcast

We going to take a look at a few more schemes used in the industry by record companies nd managers to take their artists to top spot over the next coming articles. Have you ever wondered why so often you find leaked sex videos of artists?

Every week, there seems to be another naked celebrity in the news: Nicki Minaj and Kelly Rowland’s wardrobe malfunctions a couple of days apart from each other, Rihanna’s explicit pictures popping up regularly, and sex videos of B and C list entertainers leaked on every gossip site.

Sure, one could claim that these “indecent exposures” are just accidents or that intimate pictures and videos are leaked by spiteful exes and hackers.  If so, why does it keep happening every week?  If celebrities are truly as appalled and embarrassed as they claim to be when their naked bodies are leaked for the world to see, why do they keep such pictures and videos of themselves on their phones and computers if it’s that risky?

 

All it takes is a little nudity and the public becomes their street team, their sales increase, the gossip sites have new content that drives traffic to them, and everyone’s happy except for real artists with real talent who can’t get the same “free” promotion because they’re more interested in making music than showing their rear-ends  and boobs …

 

which leads me to the next point and we will take a look at it in our next article.
