Alicia Keys: 'Pop Music Makes Me Cry'

ALICIA KEYS is so depressed by the state of the music industry she can't listen to the radio without bursting into tears. The singer claims record labels force meaningless, emotionless and disposable music on the public - and they are killing creativity as a result. She says, "We're in a certain instant gratification era right now that kills the whole vibe. It murders it because it makes it so accessible and easy. You can find any song anywhere at any time, so why buy it? "Then, also, at the heart of the matter, is the fact that people aren't motivated to even feel anything anymore. So much music right now is empty, and that's what we get shoved down our throats every day; emptiness. "If I watch videos or listen to radio for more than an hour, I want to cry."
