How about free?

From Katy Perry on March 11, 2013 :: 7:46 pm

Well I realize this post is from a couple years ago, but let’s see where music is at now. I can honestly that things are moving towards the free model or ad based model. Look at what YouTube is about to announce. Kids are going to YouTube and watching and listening to music there. I’m not sure the future of these pay models. The kids who listen to music nowadays aren’t really that interested in paying for anything online. Right or wrong, that’s just the way it’s going apparently.
