Good Luck w/your music. I had dreams that were never accomplished. "Top Ramen"...I hope it's a joke! It's not really healthy eating instant ramen (believe me)...stay healthy to continue your goal w/o instand foods...it might be cheaper but not for your music career.

Music is practically free today, she's asking for money to help just to make music? This makes no sense. I can understand subsidizing touring costs so fans can see you, but paying for the album so fans can hear you? Making the album by your own means is like a musical right-of-passage, like finishing a marathon. Does anyone hustle anymore. This seems more like an insurance policy or a way to cheat the process. "No one likes my album, glad I didn't pay for it". Get used to noodles kid.
