Sorry, Kylie Minogue fans!

Adele Talks Selling Out And How She Keeps Herself From Doing It!

Filed under: Music MinuteAdeleBusiness Blitz

adele-talks-selling-out-and-how-she-keeps-herself-from-doing-it

All the more reason she deserves all the success she's had this year!

She stays true to herself and her convictions, even if it's the opposite of what everyone else in similar positions is doing!

In her new interview with G Magazine, Adele opened up about how she tries to retain her integrity now that she's become such an incredible superstar, and claims that she's given herself five rules that will keep her from selling out or from becoming tabloid foddler!

She explains:

"I think it's shameful when you sell out. It depends what kind of artist you wanna be but I don't want my name anywhere near another brand. I don't wanna be tainted or haunted. I don't want to be in everyone's face. I'm a big music fan and I get really pissed off when it gets like that … and I don't want people to get like that with me. I was furious when they did that on [re-releasing her debut album with extra tracks] 19. I said 'No' and they did it anyway. Just mugging off your fans. I will not do festivals. The thought of an audience that big frightens the life out of me. I don't think the music would work either. It's all too slow. We had three nights on hold at The O2 and I was like 'I wont play a festival. You think I'm gonna play a fuckin' arena? Are you out of your mind?' I'd rather play 12 years at the Barfly [small venue for indie bands] than one night at The O2! So I've made all those decisions and some people are pretty mortified. They think I'm mad."

Wow! We really respect her for taking control of the way her name and music are marketed, and we have to respect her for her!

She knows who she is and she wants to stay true to those convictions, so if that's how she wants her to career to be, then more power to her!

It's clearly working! So keep it up, gurl!

We can't express how much we respect you enough!

Kings Of Leon Turned Down Glee!

Oh, whatever, boys!

You guys sold out segued shamelessly into mainstream with Only By The Night, don't act like you're so 'above' popular culture now!

Kings Of Leon's frontman Caleb Folowill revealed that he and the band rejected opportunities for their music to be performed on Glee, as well as Ugly Betty (R.I.P.) and various movie trailers!

He says:

"We had some people call us up wanting to know if we'd allow Use Somebody to appear in the trailer for their next movie, and we turned them down. Next day, they called back and tried to put us through to the star of the movie — I won't name names, but he's an incredibly famous actor — to let him try and convince us to agree to do it. I was like, 'Man, don't even waste your energy'."

Oh, wow! You guys are sooooo cool!

BARF.

We sincerely hope they aren't going to take the MGMT and M.I.A. route and shit all over all of their fans, because they'd rather be nonconformist and 'above' mainstream instead of focusing on making decent music!

So lame!

Thoughts??
