Music's Biggest Stars Support Megaupload! Drama Ensues!

Yeah, that website you've been using to illegally download all your music for the last three years? Celebs have been doing it too!

In a shocking and surprising twist, some of today's biggest singers and celebrities have banded together to support the file-sharing website, Megaupload. And we do mean, the BIGGEST. Just to name drop a few contributors:

P. Diddy, Will.i.am, Kim Kardashian Alicia Keys, Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, Macy Gray, Chris Brown, The Game and Mary J Blige.

Now, you might be asking yourself, "Why the hell would such mega stars support Megaupload, when it can be attributed to them losing mega bucks in album sales?" We don't know for sure, but maybe this is a time when artists are starting to drift a bit more to our side. Fight with us instead of against us on sharing music.

You know who isn't with us? The record labels. In fact, this video sparked up a lot of controversy very quickly, as Universal Music Group, which Diddy, Will.i.am and Kanye are all signed to, almost immediately had the video removed from YouTube, citing copyright infringement!

Yikes! This could get heavy!

Well, we've got the video for you here and we think you should watch it, let the jingle get stuck in your head and just marvel and what is actually unfolding here. Lot of big music players sending a strong message being a part of this video. Now let's see who is listening.

    I guess the big stars no longer support the smaller ones who do not have the luxury of making extra millions via merchandising and endorsement deals. These douchebags don't need the record sales because they have their ancillary brands to profit off. Good luck to all you upstarts. Apparently you no longer matter.

    So, with the exception of Kim Kardashian (who might as well be), they're all black. I guess this fits in with the whole hip hop/rap culture where all they do is write songs about women and money and fame. They don't give a shit about the little people who might be trying to make it in the business; they have their money, who cares if some people illegally download their stuff?

    An accepted but insidious practice can still be counter productive. Educate yourself. FAC.

    OK. Take what any one of you do for a living to eat, pay rent, gas, etc. All of a sudden a website or ten pop up that gives other people your work for free. You. Get. Nothing.
    Would that be OK? Good luck eating and paying your bills or providing for your kids down the road. Being a musician/songwriter is a JOB. Standing up on a stage and having people know who you are is not enough. Musicians are people too.

    Re: cocoabeans – if you believe that hip hop is all about women money and fame the you clearly dont know hip hop :/

    Sorry but I doubt anyone is stealing little poeple's music off here! Besides, the world is changing and so is the music industry. These artists can still profit from companies like these, they just have to go about it differently. Instead of complaining that artists are people too, maybe get a grip on reality and see that no matter what lobbyists and labels (who are crooks as well btw) try to do, they can't reverse what's already started. Only chance, adapt.

    Re: Yeahgirl2012 – These kinds of challenges are how copyright battles are going to be defined and ironed out to the satisfaction of all parties. From CNet news : 'He rents cyberlockers to the masses, and nobody disputes that many millions of people from across the globe use Megaupload to store or access unauthorized copies of TV shows, feature films, songs, porn, and software.For years now, executives at the major film studios and television networks have quietly complained that Megaupload is making a fortune off of their work by selling subscriptions to his locker services without paying them a dime.'

    why the fuck does Kim support this site ? I mean she made one song now she is a music artist or knows about the biz enough to know what she is supporting? !
