Who are the musicians with the highest net worth? These singers and musicians make millions of dollars every year because people love them. Every time you buy one of their CDs or download their music on iTunes or Amazon, they get a cut. Who are the highest paid singers and bands? For every one of their concerts that you attend, they make hundreds of thousands of dollars. Wouldn't it be great to be one of them? Some people criticize artists for making so much money because it doesn't seem like they create much value or add non-entertainment purpose to anything.
The truth is that people are not forced to pay for their music or concerts and they do so by their own will. The laws of supply and demand work in the favor of artists and many have a net worth totaling in the millions. For every celebrity however there are thousands of starving artists who make nothing. If you like these people's work they are who you should really support. The artists that do it for the love of music even though they don't get the highest pay or best bonuses are the ones that we need in this world. People with good hearts and a love of music deserve to be rewarded.
