AOL: You've been in the music business since 1991. How have you managed to stay in the game for so long?
Robyn: I've stayed in the music industry because I've felt like there was no place for me. I went from recording music and working with a major label to now having my own record label. I've felt like I couldn't really just let go of music. That's why I'm doing it -- because it's fun I don't think too much about it. I don't make a special plan for how to survive the industry. I just find my way through it.
AOL: Why did you decide to start your own record label, Konichiwa Records?
R: I had been in the music industry for ten years and I got to a point where I just wasn't having fun anymore. It was more trouble than pleasure. I really considered, at one point, to stop working with music. I felt my only option was to start my own record label ... to detach myself from the industry a little bit and have more freedom to figure out who I wanted to be as an artist.
