A ‘toxic’ culture in the music industry: Kendrick Johnson

When it comes to music, it’s not just the music that gets you into trouble.

The same goes for many of the people who make it there.

A toxic culture, according to a new study, has turned the music business into a place where a person’s reputation can be destroyed for the rest of their life.

The study found that the reputation of musicians was at risk when they worked in a music-related industry.

The survey, which surveyed over 4,000 musicians, found that nearly 70 per cent of them were afraid to speak out against the industry’s practices, and over half of them feared that their future career would be ruined. 

“The industry is toxic,” said Kia Dibber of the University of Michigan.

“I mean, people say this is a great place to work and make money, but this is an industry where people can get shot for being who they are, for being themselves, and for doing what they believe in.”

It was a similar story for the people in the film industry.

In the study, nearly 50 per cent said they were afraid of speaking out against their industry.

And just as they feared the musicians’ careers, the industry itself also feared its own reputation. 

Researchers also found that some of the artists themselves had been exposed to the toxic environment. 

Dibber told Al Jazeera that the film-industry was “very toxic”.

“There’s an incredible amount of money that goes into the film business, so a lot of people have money, and they have an opportunity to make a career out of it,” she said.

“And there’s also a lot that goes to the music and the recording industry, so that the people behind those things are being paid.

And that’s what makes it so toxic.”

I think that we’re all connected in some way to this culture, and we have to come together to change it.

“In the study the researchers found that in a handful of cases, artists themselves actually became the ones who were threatened with losing their jobs over their music career.

One such case involved an artist named Lacey Fournier. 

The young Canadian artist was making her debut film, The Unauthorized Story of the L.A. Police Department, and was also working on her third feature film, the acclaimed The Best of Lacey. 

Lacey Foyntier, director of The Unofficial Story of Los Angeles Police Department in 2006 and 2010, says her film was shot in the summer of 2007. 

But, according with her family, she started working in the city’s music scene in September 2007, at the behest of her family and her boyfriend, filmmaker Mark Fourniers, who is also an actor. 

He was approached by Lacey’s brother, Josh, and asked him to direct the film, which he did, and it went on to become a hit. 

It was a very, very hard movie, to make, to work on, to get the film out there, and to get people to see it, to hear it, and that’s how I started working on the film.

But, as I started filming, I was approached and told that I couldn’t be involved in the movie, that it was being made for a different purpose. 

Josh Fournieri said that the producer approached him and told him that Liz was going to make the film because of what Lizzie had done, and he thought that that’s really weird. 

I was just thinking that she’s not a good actress, that’s the thing that really bothered me about that whole situation, and I was trying to tell him, ‘No, she’s a good person and she’s very talented.

She’s very good, and she could be a great actor, too.'” 

The producer, he added, was just like, ‘She’s a young girl, and the people that she knows aren’t good actors, and her movie is going to be a good movie’.

And I said, ‘That’s not true, you’re not making a movie about this person, you can’t be that person’. 

“And he said, ‘She’s making a film, I want to see what she’s got going on.

I want you to take this project, and make it as good as you can, and then come back to me and tell me what you want to do.'” 

So, Josh Fourners’ production company sent Lacey a $3,000 check, which she says she spent on clothes, food, and travel. 

She says that she was told that she had three days to decide whether she wanted to continue working in Los Angeles. 

After making her decision, Lacey decided to film the film for her family in Toronto, where she was shooting the music video for her debut single, “Trouble”. 

The film is the story of L
