Tickets For Lin-Manuel Miranda's Final Hamilton Performance Are Selling For As Much As $20,000 Apiece… Seriously!

no title

You may have no choice but to throw away your shot after hearing this…

It's no secret that Hamilton is already a Broadway classic after winning 11 of its record-setting 16 Tony Award nominations, but the Alexander Hamilton hype train may have just officially gone off the rails.

That's because tickets for Lin-Manuel Miranda, Phillipa Soo, and Leslie Odom, Jr.'s final performance are selling for upwards of $20,000!!!

Seriously — the trio are set to take their final bows this Saturday, and if you had any hope of seeing them in action one last time, you better be willing to fork over some serious cash on StubHub.

But even if you wanted to get the cheapest seat in the entire Richard Rodgers Theater, hopefully you have a spare $2,700 for the regularly priced $129 scraps being scalped on Craigslist!

While we don't blame anyone for wanting to take part in the historic musical… we can't imagine any 3-hour engagement being worth the price of an affordable mid-sized sedan.

How much would U pay to see LMM LIVE onstage??

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??

Like Daughter, Like Mother! Heidi Montag's Mom Charges $5K Appearance Fee!

Filed under: Heidi Montag

heidi-montag-mother-appearance-fee1.jpg

Wow! Someone thinks very highly of themselves.

Perhaps a bit more than they really should!

Sources have learned that Heidi Montag's mother, Darlene Egelhoff, is trying to carve a nice little piece of the celebrity pie for herself by charging $5000 for speaking engagements!

Times have been tough for Darlene as she recently revealed that she had to close down her family's restaurant due to the economy and has been working as a maid to make ends meet. Still, her asking price seems rather steep, regardless of her financial trouble. When checking into the pricing with a booking agent, it was learned that similar celebs who charge the same fee include Omarosa, Jersey Shore's Angelina, The Salahis, and Kim Zolciak.

Wow! What a motley crew, huh?

Oh, and in case you were actually interested, Darlene's speaking engagements are based on her musings advice she dispenses on her blog, Metamorphosis of a Mother. From it's title, we assume you can derive what's her favorite topic of discussion on the site.

Speidi Is Bankrupt & They Feel Like "Idiots"

Filed under: Spencer PrattHeidi Montag

No argument from this corner!

We haven't heard much from Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag since their plans for a divorce folded and they joyously reunited. We would have expected a recommitment ceremony by now or at least some publicized plans to reignite their celebrity.

But sources are reporting that they've been a little busy with other stuff these days - like trying to recoup financially from blowing through $10 million!

Wow! Who knew they had that much?

The couple is telling sources that not only have they been left penniless after throwing money away on homes, cars and Heidi's "music career", but that they are now currently homeless and owe $2 million in taxes. According to them, they are one step away from filling for bankruptcy!

Not good!

Life& Style caught up with the pair and asked them how they could get themselves into such a situation. Spencer, who claims he's "looked into unemployment checks," explains that they were "idiots":

"We were immature, worrying too much about the famous part instead of the actual business part, In hindsight, we shouldn't have spent any of our money. We should have been low-key and saved. We thought The Hills was going to be like [the original] '90210' and we'd have another five to 10 years. The ratings were consistent. But we never saw Jersey Shore coming. Before, TV audiences were fine with seeing us all argue, but now they want you to punch one another in the face and hook up with three different people. Our cast was a bit boring and snoozeworthy in comparison. No wonder we got canceled."

Yes, but as we all recall, you got canned a long time before the show did, Spencer! Just saying!

For now, the pair are living off the kindness of Spencer's parents, living in their guest house and having them go grocery shopping for them. But regardless of their sad situation, shockingly, Speidi knows that it is self-inflicted. Spencer added:

"We don't want sympathy. We did this to ourselves and feel like idiots. But we've grown up and are definitely not as naive anymore."

Time will tell if that is really true. Hopefully, they got paid for this interview at the very least.

We want to feel bad for them, but as they pointed out, they did this to themselves. Plus, they've burned so many bridges along the way that we don't see them rebounding anytime soon. Honestly, it would only take one reality show to bounce them back on their feet, but who the hell is going to hire them?!

Spielberg Goes Big!

Filed under: TV NewsSteven Spielberg

steven spielberg over budget on terra nova by 10 million dollars doesn't care

Go big or go home, they say!

By now, you know that Steven Spielberg is helming a new futuristic TV drama called Terra Nova. It's not poised to release until next year or possibly even the year after that, but even still, the show is getting a lot of buzz. However, sources are reporting that even though the show has yet to start filming, the show is already $10 million over budget!

Um, say what?!

According to sources, FOX has picked up 13 episodes of the massive show, including a two-hour pilot, which alone is accounting for $20 million to produce!

Wowza! Now figure, that's with only two people making the cast list thus far (Life on Mars' Jason O'Mara and Avatar's Stephen Lang) and not an inch of film in the can. That's insane.

This better be worth the money Steven is throwing down! (Then again, he probably blinks and makes a million dollars, so it might not be such a big deal for him!)

Are U looking forward to this new show?

Get Your Shiz Together, MGM! Daniel Craig Wants To Be Bond!

Filed under: Film FlickersDaniel Craig

daniel craig wants to play james bond 007 in new movie mgm still have money problems

It's the role of his career! He isn't giving up on it!

Daniel Craig is imploring MGM to find a solution to their financial problems so that he can slip into a tuxedo and start pistol whipping people again with his Golden Eye.

In other words, he wants back in playing Bond, James Bond.

In a recent interview, Daniel expressed his frustration with the delay in making another 007 flick, saying:

“Unless MGM can sort themselves out, we can’t make a movie. It’s hard to talk about things that aren’t happening. There will be more to say when things are happening. I’m really keen to get going, it’s as simple as that. And I’m hoping that, in a while, we will…I felt as if we were just getting going and that we’d get the chance to make a couple more. I’d like fulfill the circle with the story. But, yes, there is nothing really to say until whoever gets that house [at MGM] in order. There’s no chance of getting it made until those things are taken care of…I love playing Bond — I don’t want to be away from it for too long.”

And we love you as Bond, but money makes the studio go round and without it, then it becomes a no dice situation!

Hopefully, someone will shake the money tree into their pockets before you have to start collecting social security!
