Joni Mitchell ‘Ashamed’ to Be in Music Business

The veteran singer/songwriter, on the promotional trail for a new album, says she is “ashamed” to be part of the music business and may stop recording.

“I just think it’s a cesspool,” the 58-year-old folk-rock icon said in the latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine.

“I hope it all goes down the crapper. I would never take another deal in the record business, which means I may not record again, or I have to figure out a way to sell over the Net or do something else. But I’ll be damned if I’ll line their pockets.”
