Spotify CRASHES as soon as it opens MAC OS X 10.8.4

Spotify keeps crashing when i open it! was working fine yesterday, now i can't even open it, have to force quit every time it launches!

 

Seems this defect has been around for a while and no fix yet! what is going on? Not happy about paying for a service when it doesnt even work!

It's the WIFI.  Something is wrong with the Wifi connection that freezes Spotify.

 

Turn off the wifi, open Spotify. Then turn it back on.

If that is the case, doing this may fix it permanently:
- Disconnecting your Mac from the internet completely.
- Launching Spotify, should open in offline mode.
- Log out of Spotify
- Reconnect to the Internet
- Log back into Spotify
