is it just me, or does this really bother you as well? you hear all these musicians and actors/movie stars etc who claim they are "artists", but then do ads for all sorts of companies and products etc... i have no problem with musicians, actors, movie stars etc. making a fortune for their talent through the means of their art... such as: -big salary for a movie/TV show etc. -musicians doing concerts/selling CD's/merchandise but when you see all these "artists" actively whoring it out for a big check for a random company, it comes off as really cheesy... some stars restrict themselves to "voiceovers" like George Clooney in Budweiser,etc others go all out in campaigns... and then musicians sell their music for commercials...that might be a little more forgivable, but not much... but when U2 the band actively advertised for Blackberry and Apple...it just became too much. what do you guys think? is this annoying? does it detract from the artists credibility at all?
