No idea, I'm just a troll.

If I were to guess though, I'd think it has something to do with technology invading the collective with archetypal imprints.

Pay them to not ask why.

Re: Clear something up for me...
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.
 Quoting: Where Eagles Dare


Become enrich and then enrich others. It's always about achieving a balance. Perhaps if celebs did this more, then they wouldn't have such depression and addictions.

Re: Clear something up for me...
I understand that, but the balance is off there. They don't deserve what they get. Even they know they don't deserve what they get.

Marketing or not, majority of that money should go to worthwhile causes to help the planet and humanity. I don't fucking see that happening...
 Quoting: The Serpent's Maiden


Thinking that money can solve problems when there is no single problem that humanity faces as a result of a lack of money is part and parcel to the situation you're decrying.


Good causes are better funded by willing and able hearts and hands asking for nothing in return if you ask me.
 Quoting: Deafcat


It certainly can solve some problems yes? Like clean drinking water just as an example?
 Quoting: The Serpent's Maiden


A lack of money did not cause that problem, so no, it will never solve it. It will only make it better for a time until the root issue, left unaddressed, overcomes the band-aid applied through financial means.

A lot of places with polluted water sources are from consumerist trash and industrial waste - i.e. the most basic results and means of acquiring capital wealth.

One could argue that money is actually the cause of that problem in a lot of places. problem + problem != solution

Re: 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
 Quoting: The Serpent's Maiden


They're entertainers and they deserve their money because they're entertaining millions of people. Besides it's not like everyone who hears their music pays for it. It gets played on the radio and youtube where the entertainer gets royalties from the broadcaster.

During the dark ages I.e the time of Shakespeare, he'd write plays and entertain thousands of people at various halls where the plays were performed.

Most people who hate on others are either directly wronged by them, or just jealous of the person they hate on.

If you want rockstar money, just write a song and perform it. Then you too can enthrall the world with your musical talent.

When you have a lot of money it is easier for you to sin. An exam for the personality.

And every a song is played on a a radio station there got between 200-2000 Dollars.
A hit song is played hundreds of times on several radio stations around the world, plus YouTube advertisement money,advertisement contracts and Concerts,

Re: Clear something up for me...
its basic math.

I'm surprised celebrities don't make more money than they do, but most of them that you're thinking of only reach the American audience. If America can broaden out to the whole world, they will make more money.

Musician do what there best.
Evil they take drugs and have sexual Intercourse with cheap people and write songs.

Good, they live intact structure with friends and family, have Fun making music and have a lot of events that are related. There are asked by so many people to help them. But with the stress they help not every body.

But if there is a good event to play at a charity they will do it. A evil musician do not do it for no money or only when he want promote his album.

You're projecting your morality on to others as opposed to allowing them to be their own people.

Essentially you're being a socialist who decries freedom for a faux morality that sounds pretty but denies freedom to do whatever other people want to do or how other people view their life.

God gave us free will to make of our lives what we will. If that means to make money and bang hookers, then who are we to say it's wrong.

The only real crime in life is to deny others their self determination to amuse the deity.

Pedophilia traumatizes children and it stops them from living a life free of fear to explore the world.

Whenever someone seeks to take away the God given freedom from others even under the auspices of morality. They commit a evil equal to pedophilia.

That's why we all say we hate the elite as we believe them to want to enslave us... Yet we enslave each other through social conditioning to appease sentimentality of what we think is right or noble.

Conservatives pushing their idea of morality are no different than the Liberals they claim they despise. Both wings of the same bird pushing for global hegemony over an impoverished world they seek to reign over with an iron fist...

Re: Clear something up for me...
Well, you should look into how the CIA funded Modern Art, even buying art from Jackson Pollock.

So Pollock gets paid millions by the CIA to dump buckets of paint randomly on a canvas. Then they hire writers to convince everyone it's genius.

It's the same thing with music.

Taylor Swift comes from an elite family that bought her fame. The Democrats have been funding the music industry to keep the tunes with an approved message rolling.

The Federal Reserve can just print out cash whenever it wants and therefore uses that cash to promote content that maintains their power.

If people only realised what freedom of the press means! It's just a goddamn piece of paper!

 Quoting: The Serpent's Maiden


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
 Quoting: Evolution16


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. But nope I'm not seeing that from these celebrities. Sure they donate but the majority are greedy motherfuckers. Makes me sad for the world. For the sheep who pay for this shit and perpetuate the imbalance further.
 Quoting: The Serpent's Maiden


Couldn't agree more. $ = comfort for most. If you keep asking "why" you want something. Most end up at "because it makes me comfortable". Beyond a certain $$$, unless you are a complete narcissist, you and those you care for are comfortable. Past that point, everyone should be doing all the good they can with the extra. Why wouldn't you help others? Somewhere capitalism = culture of pure greed. I kinda wish we got the benefits of capitalism (it tends to do a pretty good job of putting $ where it is used efficiently) with all the humanity of a good and kind community. Pie in the sky I know, but there's always hope!
