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


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!

They don't make money because they've been chosen to make money. They make money because people pay to see them behave and act and pretend to be something they're not. It's a capitalistic system. Supply and demand.

Yes, that is very true as well. I think giving back is the key here. Do the best with the money that the universe blessed you with.

What pisses me off is that you really NEVER hear of celebs doing this. I mean a few, but all of them could be and should be doing more!
