Even if Apple just recently gave people the option to delete the new U2 album off of their Iphones, Ipads or Ipods or whatever… people are still complaining and bitching. After all this has been going on, I am starting to figure out why people are hating.
Here’s the deal…
People like free things. Don’t lie about it. Everybody loves free things. The reason everybody is hating on Apple and U2 is not because they gave out a free album. It’s not because of Apple or Itunes. People are only complaining and bitching because it all depends on the artist who is giving away the free album.
We all know that U2 has been one of the most hated bands for a long time now. In the past, U2 used to be one of the most respected bands in the world but after the album, “Achtung Baby”… that’s when U2 got a lot of hate when they decided to change their genre of music and go electronic for their albums, “Zooropa” and “POP”. Then Bono got himself into this Africa activism for starving children and all that stuff which is part of why they teamed up with Apple.
America loves free music but like I said it all depends on the artist who’s giving away free music on Itunes.
How much do you wanna bet that if artists like Taylor Swift, Adelle or John Mayer gave out a free album on Itunes… everybody wouldn’t mind it. People would have been all for it.
It’s all about the artist, not Apple.
How much do you wanna bet that those people who complained and whined about the new U2 album being forced on their gadgets didn’t even listen to the album? They just felt like hating. Haters are gonna hate.
Sharon Osbourne just recently called out Apple and U2 for this on twitter, she’s hating on them too. I personally think that the only reason Sharon is hating ’cause she’s mad that Apple didn’t ask Ozzy to be a part of it. If Apple asked Ozzy or Black Sabbath to give out a free album, I’m almost 100% positive Sharon WOULD be on board for it.
I’m pretty sure this won’t be the last time Apple is gonna do this. They’ll do this again with a different artist but who knows who???
The reason Apple did this ’cause Steve Jobs was good friends with Bono before he died and I’m sure this is what Steve would have wanted. I think they did it in Steve’s honor. I can see Apple giving away free albums by Bob Dylan next ’cause Steve was a huge fan of his.
Like I said above, everybody likes free music… don’t lie about it… some people just hated U2 being the first one to do it.
No matter what people think of this idea… I think it’s a good marketing strategy. It’s a good way to get artists out there. Apple will probably do this more. This will be an ongoing trend.
I mean, if people hate Apple so much then why did they get an Iphone or an Ipod??? There are other gadgets out there and other brands. That’s why people have agreed to use Androids and there are other Mp3 players too.
I used to hate Apple and at first, I never wanted anything to do with Apple products until now. Now I’m in love with Apple products and think there is nothing wrong with them.
There’s no reason for people to complain. They just complain ’cause that’s all they’re gonna do. Once again, haters are gonna hate. I think they’re just jealous that U2 got shoved in everyone’s faces like that.
Instead of complaining and whining… just listen to the album. I think it’s a great album and the boys are back musically!!! I’ve listened to it a couple of times already.
