Horrified Observers of Pedestrian Entertainment: Elton John, Eminem, and Oligarchs




Elton John, Eminem, and Oligarchs

Did you know that rich Russians pay millions of dollars for private concerts from giant superstars? People like Eminem and Elton John fly to russia, play for 20 minutes, and get paid 300,000 to 1 million dollars by bored businessmen that don't like them.

We thought this was important because it is basically how things work here. Radio stations are paid millions to put bands on the air, and then we listen to them in a disinterested manner. We may not be spoiled and corrupt russian oligarchs, but in the end we listen to music just like them.
