What Problem??

I have a ritual each morning. I get up grab myself a bowl of cereal and go through my RSS feeds and news sites. Today I decided to check out the music news on msn.com. What I thought I would get verses what I actually saw were two very different things.

When I want music news I want to hear about good things happening to artists, new music, festivals and performs etc..

What I found was the vast majority of the stories were artists going to jail or to rehab. Then we get to hear about divorces, sentencing, and well it is nice to see Amy Winehouse back on the stage. What the hell are these people doing? Can’t you get a grip on your own life? I wonder if anybody has heard of positive PR?

Here are the headlines for this morning:
