Glad I am from a generation whose work was offered with retirement pensions.
Musician w/ 1-million views makes under a pound (revealed).
She might have made 1300 pounds if the content was not disputed. She seems content to raise her public awareness for herself as an act; also a bit angry that she was both ignorant of money involved and why someone else profited from her good fortune. Million views, nothing to sneeze at?
As for me, my best has what? Thousand views and no chance to monetize, until I get 1000 subscribers. That ought to happen...never.
Keeping it real, as the brothers say. The vids are just small infomercials to give annoying questions a redirect. "Watch the YouTube if you're curious." That or Fug off, but corporate frowns on me telling potential customers that stupid is as stupid asks.
Bottom line, the videos the gal makes with Leo Moracchioli (Heavy Metal covers of pop hits) are fabulous.
