This is a topic that's been covered and moaned about in individual threads over the past year, but The Guardian yesterday posted this quite lengthy and interesting piece about struggling pop girls, so I figure it deserved an individual thread because it's something that's coming up daily here. Read the full piece over here. What do y'all think? Is your fave in label A&R hell? Could the tide be turning now that Dua managed to release a great album and is about to blow up finally? Will be alive to see Joyride on iTunes?
