Why are you ashamed that you illegally download media??
When it comes to music, most acts make the vast majority of their income from touring. I'll download their music, but then definitely go see them in concert.
As for downloading TV shows.... it really is no different than owning a TiVo.
Pirating movies I guess I would consider the most "wrong".... and I have no rationalization for it other than the fact that purchasing a BluRay for $30 to watch twice just doesn't appeal to me.
If its a good movie, I generally see it in the theater first.
