The Beyhive got their stingers in a twist when their Google alerts went all dingy this week with the vicious claim that Ariana Grande got paid twice as much as their leader Beyonce to headline Coachella. I mean, it makes sense, since Ariana had the best four members of NSYNC in her Coachella show, and Beyonce didn’t even TRY to get O-Town for hers. But because this is not a belated April Fool’s Day prank, and anyone on their meds would know that we are living in real life world and not The Upside Down, of course there is no way in Hell, on God’s Green Earth, or while Beyonce is still living and breathing (and probably into the Afterlife, who are we kidding) that type of wage gap disparity would actually happen to the Queen of the Honey
Venom is no doubt crying salty, poisonous tears today, because it’s no longer the creepy-faced film villain that is at the top of the box office. Deadline reports that Venom was beaten at the box office by Halloween, who took home an insane amount of money for a movie about a guy in a dirty William Shatner mask who doesn’t say much.
For the past week, Nicki Minaj has been been publicly feuding with Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner. That strategy hasn’t exactly been paying off for Nicki, as it was recently announced that the North American leg of her NickiHndrxx Tour got canceled, possibly due to low ticket sales. But that’s not to say that publicly dragging a Kardashian husband isn’t a lucky dice roll for everyone who tries it. Last fall, Taylor Swift repeatedly took aim at Kanye West and Kim Kardashian on her album Reputation. Taylor then took Reputation on tour in May, and almost four months in, Billboard is reporting that it’s now the highest-grossing US tour by a woman.

It was announced last night that LeBron James is leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers for the Los Angeles Lakers in exchange for $153.3 million.
During an industry panel at the INTV 2018 conference, the producers of Netflix’s The Crown revealed they spent more money on snively Prince Philip than they did on the actual crown meaning the queen meaning the actual star of the fucking show it says it right there in the title goddammit! Variety reports that Netflix had been paying Matt Smith’s no-eyebrow-having ass more than Golden Globe winning actress Claire Foy for the past two seasons.
Forbes has released yet another list that will inevitably make you want to send a sympathy card to your bank account. This time Forbes has compiled a list of the world’s highest-paid women in music for 2017. Beyonce is already the kind of wealthy that has me scratching my head and wondering if she uses regular people toilet paper, or if one of her minions cuts up white cashmere sweaters into little squares for her each morning. She’s also insanely successful. And so, unsurprisingly, she pulled in some serious Beyonce-levels of money this year.
