Adele Sucks Up Cash As Music Biz Reports "Least Negative" Results Since Bush Years
Recent reports from The Music Industry have revealed that the world of aural entertainment is not only transitioning away from a free-falling-plummet to lightly-descending-tumble, but the music business be sticking around a little longer than we expected. And frankly, longer than we can stomach.
According to the study, 2011's total global revenue only dropped 3% from 2010, "the least negative result" since 2004. And it appears England's Grammy-hoggin' Brit, middle-finger-flippin' Adele, is to blame.
Despite the ongoing Skrillex-pocalypse consuming the little bit of pop music that isn't already LMFAO-ed, the human race can still get behind a bird with some pipes.
Last year, Adele became the first artist to go double-platinum on iTunes. And this year she not only swept the Grammys but now, evidently, is keeping the music industry plugged into its life support system.
Y'know, at first we're a little annoyed that anyone is helping the dickheads who sold CDs for $18 make anymore money.
