Portfolio magazine is reporting that Britney Spears is worth 120 million dollars worth of business to the United States. When she is touring it goes up from there. Here's their breakdown of costs:
- Promoters/Licensers - 30-40 million through endorsements
- Paparazzi - 4 million peddling photos
- Print, Web, and Video media - 75 million
- Federline Factor - He gets 1 million a year from her
While I recognize all these things as being true, it's clearly not as exciting as the magazine makes it.
So my question is, if Britney continues her downward spiral, would the US workers lose the money? I don't think so. If anything the tabloids and paparazzi will see record earnings.
I say it shouldn't matter and we should focus on more important things - like who has better hair, Britney or Paris? I say Britney in her heyday couldn't be touched. However, now that Britney wears a wig, I'm going with Paris.
