,----[ Quote ]
| She's working closely with various brands 
| to help fund the business model. She's 
| selling other product lines such as makeup. 
| But, she's also come up with some unique 
| "reasons to buy." For example, she got the 
| magazine Elle to produce an entire issue 
| dedicated to her -- but the only way to get 
| it is to buy her new CD. In other words, 
| she's giving people a reason to buy the CD. 
| And... even better, she (or, her people) 
| sold the ads that are in the magazine and 
| gets to keep all of that money. It's the 
| superstar blend of recognizing that content 
| and advertising have really become the same 
| thing.
