2011 — Top Artists in Entertainment!
Know who thinks 'The Year of the Woman' is every year? My mom! And I'm inclined to agree with her. But the music business isn't always so caring. It's been promoting dudes since before I can remember. Then when rock 'n' roll got big, they had the dudes wear long hair just so the women wouldn't take charge. Paranoid thinking or dead accurate? You decide!
Anyhow, I took a gander at the fine, fine acts that were making music and money this year and I wrote them down on a piece of paper and put them in an order that I liked. I even threw in an old person so I wouldn't lose my extremely valuable and loyal Medicare demographic. Up With AARP!
One thing you must admit about this list, it sure is pretty!
25) Roger Waters: The former Pink Floyd leader has been building his damn Wall for so long that it's become the most popular wall in the world, narrowly beating out the Great Wall of China, since who can trust the numbers coming out of that country!
24) Justin Bieber: Along with fame comes the loonies. My memory's a little foggy, but I'm thinking maybe I'm having his child. And I will name him Heineken. Or Kahlua if it's a girl.
23) Lil Wayne: Having released Tha Carter IV, which is every bit as good as Rocky IV I might add, Lil Wayne continues to promote preventive dentistry everywhere he goes. Now it looks like he might be in a beef with Jay-Z over 'baby money' and 'How much you love your lady money'! Can I get in on this? Like, your mother, dude!
22) U2: What the hell are these guys doing here? Who knows? They win a Grammy every year without putting out a new record, so of course I'm going to mention them. Look for my new book, My Life With Bono.
