Shakira became the latest artist to leave their label for a deal with Live Nation following Madonna and Jay-Z. She’ll reportedly make at least 69,500,000 dollars more than you would in your whole life. In return, Live Nation gets a cut of Shakira’s touring, merch opportunities (all hip and lap dances, etc), future album releases (after her deal for three more albums with Epic is up) and her soul(provided that Live Nation can cut a deal with the devil). Unlike Live Nation’s other deals, I think that this one will fully flop. Do you even think that Shakira will make three more albums? Maybe one more and a christmas one (Feliz Navidad, it’s July!). I thought they got rid of Michael Cohl to avoid deals like these.
