Here’s a rather attention-grabbing post by an outspoken Musical Artists.  Forthright it may be, we think it brings up some interesting points about the changing state of how fans support their favorite Entertainers.

Here are some quick takeaway excerpts:

Artists used to rely on middlemen to collect their money on their behalf, thereby rendering themselves innocent of cash-handling in the public eye.

Artists will now be coming straight to you (yes YOU, you who want their music, their films, their books) for their paychecks.
please welcome them. please help them. please do not make them feel badly about asking you directly for money.
Dead serious: this is the way sh*t is going to work from now on and it will work best if we all embrace it and don’t fight it.”

“I believe in the future of cheap art, creative enterprise, and an honorable public who will put their money where their mouth is, or rather, their spare change where their heart is.”

Right on to the future Amanda.
