Have you ever wondered how much a singer makes? How much a famous singer makes? What about song writers? Or perhaps, even DJs? Billboard magazine did their homework and presented us with a graph of how much artists in Hollywood get paid. If you wonder why some singers would rather sign up for a Las Vegas Residency than going on a world tour? It’s because they know they can’t guarantee full stadiums like Beyonce can, so they end up saving themselves from the embarassment and sign up to perform in Las Vegas 3 days a week for a steady number of people.
That said, we don’t think Britney Spears can’t get stadiums full of fans to watch her. It’s just that she’s not stable enough to travel the world. She’s still under the watch of her father, so this pretty much explains her health situation. Also, she has grown kids so to be at one place is the ideal job. From this presentation, we also get to see how much artists get to perform on late night shows.
Actually, we always thought that artists perform for free on late night shows because they get exposure/free publicity for their songs/albums. So, they get paid and get publicity. Also, their staff get paid so little for all the hard work. We think the bigger the stars, the more they should pay their staff. We won’t say more, check out the interesting report below. One thing for sure, it does take a lot of hard work and sacrifice to make this much money.
