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.
