The MPAA claims that Hollywood and movies are dying because of illegal downloading. I would say that maybe they are taking a small hit financial from downloading. A small hit that is easily recovered and made up for. But what do I really think has turned Hollywood into shit for the last several years?
TMZ, Access Hollywood, Perez Hilton
With America's obsession with knowing every little detail about the lives of their stars we've thrown celebs into a panic. They must watch every step they take as to not offend anyone. As soon as they say or do something offensive they're career is done in most cases.
Reading about and hearing the stories of some celebs from the 20's, 30's, and 40's that shit wouldn't fly today. They would be blacklisted and protested.
Now think about some of the great actors and actresses from the time period I listed. Look into their lives and some of the info that came out about them after their deaths many years later. If TMZ was around back then that shit would be in the front papers.
Think of all the great movies and shows that could have been if it wasn't for us hounding and scaring all of our talent into taking the safe road for everything.
Just a thought, nothing more.
