Eliot Spitzer's prostitute Ashley Alexandra Dupre knows "What We Want"

TDS Editors

What does the fact that you can buy her song for $0.19 $0.36 $0.69 $0.98 or her body for $2000/hour say about the music industry?

Amie Street:

All songs start free and can rise in price up to 98 cents. The price of a song depends on how many times it’s been bought – if a member buys a song for free, he or she probably got a deal for getting to the song first. If the song is at 98 cents, then it’s a given that a lot of people on Amie Street think it’s a great song.

We support our artists by giving them 70% of song sales and never taking ownership of their creative work. We want all artists on Amie Street to be successful and we believe that our unique marketplace will accomplish this goal to a degree never achieved before.

Ashley Alexandra Dupre MySpace page

NYT:

Music is her first love, and on the MySpace page, Ms. Dupre mentions Patsy Cline, Frank Sinatra, Christina Aguilera and Lauryn Hill among a long list of influences, including her brother, Kyle. (She also lists Madonna, Mary J. Blige and Amy Winehouse as her top MySpace friends.) In the interview, she said she saw the Rolling Stones perform at Radio City Music Hall on their last tour after a friend gave her two of tickets. “They were amazing,” she said.

On MySpace, it says: “I am all about my music and my music is all about me. It flows from what I’ve been through, what I’ve seen and how I feel.”

UPDATE: Ashley uploaded a new song. It’s already up to $0.92.
