Pixie Lott offered her opinion on the digital theft of music on her blog at MySpace (@pixiesongs) on Monday (September 21), talking about the impact it’s had on the industry but stopping short of advocating any criminal consequences. The ‘Mama Do’ singer writes:
In no way do I feel that people should be punished. You can’t punish a ten-year-old boy because an opportunity has been given to him; it’s the fact that the opportunity is even there; something needs to change peoples..something needs to change! Illegal downloading is completely detached from reality, from morals. It’s a little loophole, a haven of freedom that can’t fail to attract because nothing in life is free. If something is being done, it should be done to discourage such interest and to provide different options. There are already some developments online, those which make money in different ways, some of which can be free to the listener, however these need to be improved upon and promoted. People need to be persuaded against the blatant and accessible opportunity of theft.
ITN quized Pixie Lott to determine if she’s grounded or an airhead, including whether she’s thinking about starting a fashion label, hanging out in the VIP area, and if Russell Brand has tried to have sex with her. Watch the clip below.
