SuBo Worth Over $16 Million!

susan boyle is worth sixteen and a half million

And to think…she lives on an allowance of only $450 a week!

According to Cliff Dane of Britain's Sunday Times Rich List, Susan Boyle is worth about $16.5 million.

Here's what Dane had to say about it:

“Unlike a lot of artists who write songs and have heavy touring commitments, most of Susan’s income has come from old-fashioned record sales, mostly CDs as opposed to downloads due to the nature of her fanbase. I estimate she is currently worth $16.5 million based on royalties and advances accumulated to date.”

We're glad to hear it, SuBo!

We're proud of you, and we wish you the best with your continued success, bb!

Beware! Illegally Downloading Music Is On Its Way Out!

Filed under: Music MinutePolitik

The future looks bleak for all those who would rather download their music for free on the Internet illegally than pay iTunes $1.29 per song.

After Thanksgiving, a bill that will give the Justice Department the power to take down illegally offered copyrighted content for sale, download, or streaming, will go to the Senate for a full vote.

This new bill, the Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act, allows federal officials to get to work on shutting down any and all websites they deem illegally distributing music and other copyrighted materials.

As you can imagine, La La Land is thrilled to be getting their money back from all the consumers who've been cheating them all this time. SAG and the DGA even issued a joint-statement in support of the bill, saying:

“We believe today’s committee action is the first step in making it much more difficult for rogue site operators to run their sites with impunity.”

Uh-huh. Ever heard of the old saying, "where there's a will, there's a way?" We think the government underestimates the average American's overpowering inclination to not pay for stuff.

But still, this could affect a lot of your favorite websites, which is a bummer.

What are your thoughts about this new bill?

Filed under: Music MinuteKaty PerryGlee

WOW! This is HUGE!

According to the Billboard Charts, Darren Criss' AMAZING cover of Katy Perry's Teenage Dream on Glee this week is expected to sell from 150,000 to 175,000 downloads on iTunes, which would make it the single-best sales week for a single from the series - even better than the current number one - Don't Stop Believin' by Journey!

Holy shiz!

Amazing!

If Criss weren't secured a regular spot already, he'll DEFINITELY be getting one now!

Congratulations, bb!

And if you haven't already watched it a hundred times already - like us - then check out the performance (above)!

Thoughts??
