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?

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 don't envy that at all! It sounds horrible, I very much value my privacy.

Fame is truly a 'Faustian Bargain'.
I say good on them - I wouldn't want their life either!
