There's a new article that addresses the fact that Pandora pays NO- talents like Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Coldplay etc. multi-millions in compensation.
No doubt those guys are ridiculously overpaid given that they are the pond #$%$ of the music world, total music &lyrics illiterates from head to toe.
But you have to give credit to Pandora for recognizing how the young airhead dudes love to listen to junk music in order to feel "cool," and so the great P pays obscene sums to guys who are better suited to janitorial work than playing instruments. LOL LOL LOL
It will payoff big time in the end since all the brain dead dudes love the trendy and pay top dollar to appear trendy in all respects.
Pandora is the cool trend in radio, and smarter middle aged guys are investing in P to the max, in support of the profitable concept that it pays to bury good taste in favor of awful taste if that lines the pockets with the big bucks.
Pandora's duty to provide the worst music in the world today, even at great cost, will pay off huge soon, just stay patient, and continue to buy the very cheap stock with both hands.
