Madonna demands a sacrifice!

If there’s one thing I learned, it’s that getting a rich celebrity to comment on how the non-rich live will inevitably end with the rich celebrity looking like a complete ass disassociated with the realities of not having more money than God. Case in point: Madonna was asked about whether or not she would lower the ticket prices for her concert given the fact that the economy is in the shitter and her fans don’t have the luxury of being millionaires, and gave the following answer. Via The Daily Beast:

She’s not ready to talk about specific plans for this go-round, but it’s safe to assume that her ticket prices will continue to be astronomically expensive, Great Recession be damned. “So start saving your pennies now,” she says, sounding annoyed that any-one would suggest these prices are prohibitive. “People spend $300 on crazy things all the time, things like handbags. So work all year, scrape the money together, and come to my show. I’m worth it.”

So basically, Madonna thinks that adjusting prices to reflect the economy is for pussies, so you should all save your pennies because being in the same room as her objectively costs $300. What? Look, I know Madonna is a talented artist and she worked to get where she is, but not everyone can just plunk $300 on concert tickets, and it’s not like she’s barely making ends meet: She made $408 million off her last tour. I’m pretty sure she’s sitting pretty enough to maybe lower the fare a little bit for her fans.
