Netflix Is Finally Cracking Down On Password Sharing In The U.S.
I hope everyone has finally made their decision as to whether or not they’ll be paying for Netflix‘s password-sharing option because times up! After initially rolling out the plan to not have too many hands in the cookie jar, Netflix has finally begun the crackdown on password sharing here in the U.S. Personally; I think this is the dumbest idea ever because they can’t be losing that much money. And password sharing has become the new way of showing someone you care, which is a lost commodity in these days and times.

Decades from now, you’ll tell your great-great-grandkids, “I remember the days I could get a slice for a buck.” And, because pizza slices in 2083 will cost you at least ¥137 (or 8,100 NFTs) , the kids will assume you’ve gone mad and finally ship your old ass off to Shady Pines…

If you were worried about Taylor Swift winding up in the streets rattling a tin cup and begging for change to feed her cats, I’ve got good news for you. Despite never having owned her own masters, Taylor has still managed to make quite a good living for herself. Her 2019 earnings of $185 million have landed her the #1 spot on Forbes’ World’s 100 Highest-Paid Celebrities list. She may have been offered a shitty deal with her old label, Big Machine Records, and seen her work fall into her enemy’s hands, but don’t shed a tear for Tay Tay. There’s still plenty of Fancy Feast on the menu at her house. And you won’t see Scooter Braun’s name anywhere on this list. However, she does have other sworn enemies breathing down her neck. Coming in at #2 and #3 on Forbes’ list are Kylie Jenner ($170 M) and Kanye West ($150 M) respectively (and Kim Kardashian is #26, $72 M).

Variety has published a list of the top earning celebrities for 2019 and Martin Lawrence is sitting pretty at the big boys’ (and girls, and Tommy Girl’s) table.
