The best section of Prefix is getting shorter...


I'm distraught. I'm a massive fan of nordic pop princess Robyn and have been waiting for her music to come out in the US so I can support her. On the other hand, if I buy her CD I'll be supporting the seething pile of human waste that is Perez Hilton, since it's the inaugural release on his new record label. I guess I'm obliged to buy this CD, but I'm not going to feel good about it.

Nine previews this week. I don't think the section's getting smaller.
It's about a normal week.

Here are the number of previews in recent weeks:

Listening to Robyn's album now...Hating "Handle Me"

Robyn isn't out on Perez's label. That's through Warner Bros.
This is on Cherrytree through Interscope.
He's been very supportive of her, but, not involved financially.
Spend away!


Good to know! I thought I heard him say that was going to be on his label on a talk show, but I must have misheard.

(and contend that "Handle Me" RULZ)
