Seems to be very much en vogue....

Don't blame her. She should put some of that money to reversing that bad plastic surgery.

I think they want to sort things out while they're still alive to simplify things for their heirs.  Managing a valuable music catalogue is probably quite complex and requires professional administration.  Noel Gallagher said he's thinking about selling his catalogue at some point.

this trend is one of the reasons we keep hearing (in the States at least) classic rock/pop hits in many TV commercials.... on the one hand I am a capitalist and not opposed to artists monetizing their work, but it is a bit sad to hear these cheesy companies using classic songs to sell insurance, pharmaceuticals, hamburgers or whatever...

In the UK people associate Blur's The Universal with British Gas and boiler breakdown insurance.

On the other hand many artists whose day had come and gone see a surge in sales and interest because of it (Ratt apparently charted again just because of that awesome Geico commercial) and a new generation will discover music they might not otherwise know about and help drag them out of the mire of rap and hip hop.

The way I see it when an artist is at the point in time when they know touring and making albums is over sell their music and make money why not. They have no intentions of a continuing career...Didn't Bob Dylan recently do it ?
She moves in mysterious ways

She's in her 80's, isn't she?  You should cash in at some point to enjoy it- unless you have family worth passing it on to.
