So it looks like bigotry does NOT pay!

Donald Trump's chain of Trump Hotels are high end and 'yuge,' as The Donald would say, but all those rooms are just empty space lately — because nobody is booking the hotel chain anymore!

According to travel site Hipmunk, bookings at his hotels have fallen by 59% since The Donald began his presidential campaign last year — a truly YUGE total for the man supposedly so shrewd at business!

And several of Trump's most famous hotels are individually doing far, far worse in bookings (as compared to numbers from a year ago) than the 59% grand total, too!

Gawker Founder Claps Back At Peter Thiel's Secret War Against The Company — Says He's A 'Thin-Skinned Billionaire'

Dramaaa!

On Thursday, Gawker Media founder Nick Denton took to his site to SLAM his newly revealed nemesis, who is the tech billionaire Peter Thiel, for bankrolling lawsuits against the digital news operation. Oh snap!

As you may know, this beef all started when Thiel gave an interview to the New York Times and accused the media site of outing him as gay and causing pain to several of his dear friends. Obviously, Denton was not thrilled about this — especially since this bit of legal drama comes not long after Hulk Hogan's major victory over Gawker.

So Why Does Spotify Pay Its Artists So Poorly If The Average Employee Salary Is $168,747?!

| Filed under: Music MinuteBusiness Blitz

no title

This is NOT music to our ears…

Remember how Taylor Swift, Adele, and a bunch of other artists removed their music from Spotify because the streaming service was paying its artists too poorly?

Well, as it turns out, while the musicians are suffering financially, Spotify's employees are living quite nicely thanks to an insanely high average salary — $168,747 a year, to be exact!

The Stockholm-based company released its annual report this week, which indicated that since business began booming back in 2010, employee paychecks have increased 152 percent while Spotify itself has reportedly lost a staggering $188.7 million!!!

So this raises the question: if the people running the show are getting paid so handsomely, why are the people actually making the music making no money??

We guess Taylor was right all along…

Do U think Spotify should allocate more of its money to the artists??
