    Have celebrities including stern lost their minds? I mean we always had movie stars & celebrities but the compensation of today's celebrities vs even the richest few of the old days is so much more. I mean stern 1,000,000,000 almost earned? Kim kardashian ( a fat ass whore) in the hundreds of millions! For what exactly? M. Carey, spears, m.jackson, l.lohan, w.houston? Obviously disturbed people. Yet Carey, spears and even lohan continues to make millions and command 24/7 tabloid and news coverage! It seems insanity is really the only end game for many of these fuck heads. Look at stern and Beth. Fucking snow angels pictures and lies for what?

    Have you lost your mind? In a thread about celebrities you mention Beth.

    nah; most celebs don't know how much they're worth until their agents tell them how much they got the studios to pay, and what is a reasonable amount is determined by how much you are able to get.

    Those who pay their paydays are the ones who've lost their minds

    They've always been crazy. Today's celebs are just worse at hiding it.

    I don't mind celebrities making bank but I do mind that they don't pay much in taxes, assuming they have a good jew accountant and lawyer. Anyone who performs for a living should be able to make as much as possible. Most careers are short. Howard is the exception.

    but my point also is that their celebrity itself is out of proportion! does a filthy Reggie fucking whore with a big ass really need to command such a following and pay day? and even if Howard was at one time relevant and funny, did they really need to pay him 500 million dollars and cast him as the number 1 righteous defender of free speech because he wanted to wish death on people and spout out filth on the airwaves without censorship?

    Our whole society is deteriorating and it will selfimplode at some point. All societies collapse after some time. Just look at Rome. We're going down that route.

    Its all about the $$. If someone thinks they can make a shit load of money off someone's celebrity or talent then that talent should be paid in kind. Kim Kardashian is paid what the market will bear. You don't have to watch her fuck A group of lovely people. You don't have to ever watch or hear about her. Stop watching TMZ and other shit like that.

    Howard must make a ton of money for Sirius/XM. Otherwise he would be gone. All his bitching is just smoke. He is getting paid above and beyond what he deserves but Sirius/XM must think he is worth it.
