Usher Says TV Talent Shows “Are Killing The Music Industry”

Just weeks after appearing on American Idol as a mentor, R&B singer Usher has lashed out at TV talent shows. The singer states that talent shows are ‘killing the music industry’. Peep his statement below.

“The true art form of music is being lost, because it seems so easy that everyone can do it, and that it can happen overnight. Television is a lie. It can’t happen overnight. The artist who thinks that it can just comes and goes. The reason why great singers cannot exist in this time is maybe because they’re not properly managed, and maybe they don’t understand the full gamut of what being an entertainer is.”

“We’re dealing with an industry that is slowly but surely dying, every day. There’s the record companies that are mass-producing these versions of these people; versions of this broken art. While it works, because it sells records, it damages the business.”

Personally, I agree with what Usher said. One day you’re the star of the moment (15 seconds of fame), then the next minute you’re a J-Kwon. It’s all gimmicks. The only thing that really irks me is the fact that Usher appeared on the show. If he genuinely felt this way about the show, he should have just declined their offer to be a mentor. Shrugs…
