We knew Garth Brooks had friends in low places, but this is ridiculous.
Speaking with Access Hollywood, the country music legend took the "devil," also known as the "nice people" at YouTube, to task for what he calls an unfair compensation model for artists. Brooks told Billy Bush that the video giant "claims they pay people but they're not paying anything either. People get millions and millions of views and they don't get squat, trust me."
Brooks added that despite having reservations with the Google-owned company, he doesn't think he'll pull a Prince any time soon. "You can do it but you can't get out of it," he said of removing his videos. "I had a sweet meeting with them, they were all fired up they were all like 12… so young. I said, 'how do you get out?' Silence, you don't. Thanks for our wonderful, uh, somebody judging on this one on the government. But yeah, it's totally backward now."
