Clear something up for me...
Why do celebrities (musicians, actors, etc) make so much god damn money?

It's not like it's hard to do. Okay, playing an instrument not everyone can do that I get it. Or sing yeah, but do you think they deserve millions of dollars for doing it?

I don't...

Do you think they deserve to be worshiped as gods or some sort of heroes? Nope...I don't...

I just think the whole thing is fucked. I don't think they deserve that power. The balance is not right there.

I also think that perhaps people are starting to wake up to these facts. For instance, less people are going to the movies these days. Or going to concerts it seems.

What do you think?

Why do we worship these people like that?

Will the world ever wake up from the spell that has placed upon them?

hmm

Celebrities (Glamour) are part of the problem. Look at them, worship them, be like them.

I dont watch much TV, I used to enjoy a night out at the movies, not so much now.
I'm not one who ever got into glamour, but yes, i see those that do. I would rather travel to sacred lands, be outdoors etc, but hell, that seems out of reach these days

Actors, musicians, athlete's, aand even politicians through underhanded influence, they dont get paid to do what they appear to do, they get paid to influence.

They are no different than salesman, except most salesman are push salesman instead of soft salesman.

They make a lot of money, but they make a lot more money for other people. (promoters, networks, advertisers etc..)

And once their public goes, they are dirt poor again.

Everything comes at a price - nothing is free.

Being rich and famous has a very expensive price tag.
no private life
everyone is out to get you
Who is your friend, who is your enemy?
High probability of giving in to temptations of every kind
High probability of being black mailed
high probability of depression and substance abuse
etc.. etc..

Being famous is a health hazard!

Never envy someone who has money because of fame!!!

I hear you loud and clear, but the free market lets it happen. People are worth what people are willing to pay. Half of me says no one deserves 100 million for a movie, or 60 million for a concert tour, or a 5 year 113 million contract to throw a football. The other half (for me its the music) says I'm sooooo glad someone saw $$$$ in some of these musicians. I LOVE classic rock and can't imagine not growing with rock and roll. I can't imagine not knowing Pink Floyd and Zeppelin music was out there because it wasn't financially viable to bring that music across the pond.

It's different now that producing music or even a movie for that matter doesn't require a crap ton of money any more. I have a studio in my house for less than 5K and can get my tunes out to the world with no problem. Well, let me take that back. Some problem. That problem is no one gives a crap about my music - ha ha ha. Somehow the high barriers to entry that there USED to be culled the herd and made people celebrities because promoters and labels needed to maximize the return in their investment. I guess that's why there's not a whole lotta Chinese and Russian classic rock that I know of. They weren't allowed to make money on it so no one took the chance

I can agree with that Evolution :) I think sure get paid for your talent but damn those numbers? and if so you better share that money. Give back, the universe put you in a position to do so.

Because life sucks (and then you die). People don't want to just sit around and be miserable all the time. The distraction of music or sports or TV leads the mind away from the drudgery of daily life and the soul crushing misery of an existence that will only end when the heart stops beating. Entertainers that are proficient in their craft attract a following, and therefore become enriched.
Isaiah 40:31 - But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
