I just started using Spotify about 4 months ago and beside the fact that Spotify never shuts down even if I turn it off its always on & is always running my battery down! Now this! Ill give you one guess what happened after I seen this in the news?
Why did Spotify choose Joe Rogan over Neil Young? Hint: It’s not a music company.
The controversy began last week, when rocker Neil Young posted a letter on his website demanding that his music be removed from Spotify in response to “fake information about vaccines” on the platform. He singled out Rogan, who hosts “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast, as part of his issue with Spotify, writing: “They can have Rogan or Young. Not both.”
Two days later, Spotify began the process of pulling Young’s music, saying in a statement that they “regret” Young’s decision “but hope to welcome him back soon.”
Days later, others began joining Young. “I’ve decided to remove all my music from Spotify,” eight-time Grammy-winning songwriter Joni Mitchell wrote in a statement on her website on Friday. “Irresponsible people are spreading lies that are costing people their lives. I stand in solidarity with Neil Young and the global scientific and medical communities on this issue.”
Thats right I removed Spotify from all of my devices!
Back to Pandora for now.
Area Control Network Stands with Neil Young! @JoniMitchellcom
Don’t get me wrong it’s not that I don’t like people or companies allowing people to spew lies, strife and confusion! it’s that I just don’t like companies that promote those companies or people that spew lies, strife and confusion. But it’s my choice to ban those companies and people & their supporters and to make the public aware of them. Just as it is the choice of the delusional to believe in them and promote them.
