These days, artists and buzzbands are forced to unite with brands in order 2 get paid bc no1 buys albums any more. Most artists who partake in sponsored opportunities are 'pretty anal' abt how their brand will be perceived. Naturally, when Robyn was offered 2 have a concert in a JetBlue Airport terminal, she said, "Hells Yeah!" I wonder if she just made some money, or did she get VIP first class JetBlue premium international VIP sky miles admiral rapid rewards status.

Basically, she obtained A1 status 4 life [via Southwest Airlines cattle herding seating system].

Do u fly JetBlue bc of their amazing TVs + SiriusXM radio, or are they lamestream bc they don't have wifi?

Do u wish u were a part of this sponsored experience?

'Hi I'm Ted Frankfurter, head of marketing for JetBlue and we read on the internet that if u hire a trendy musician 2 do something for u, 18-35 year olds will automatically think ur brand is kewler.'

Show Me Love!

Group of ghey hawtties 'got the setlist'.

Is Robyn 4 altGheys?

'I missed my goddamned connecting flight bc of some little boy with a wedge haircut performing.'

Dancing on my own.... with JetBlue....

Was Robyn forced 2 'dress in ble' 2 integrate with the brand?

Is this an authentic display of art + commerce?
How much do u think she was paid?
How many free flights would it take u 2 leverage ur buzzband's brand?
What is the most alt/authentic airline?
What is the crappiest airline?
Is Robyn relevant or is she sorta just an 'afterthought'?
Should JetBlue start a record label/Vinyl Imprint?
Do u think an airport terminal is a good place 2 find new fans [via buskers]?
