Good. I can't think of too many people I'd be happier about losing money: Her and her idiot fans.

I hope the people who did ended up with this money spent it on jet ski rides, hot fudge sundaes, and/or white drugs.

There’s no telling what kind of numbers a Lady Gaga or a Taylor Swift could do if they decided to break away from the system and work directly with the fan base that they’ve amassed. You might see Taylor Swift getting paid $6 million a track. More power to her if she can pull in that kind of dough.

There's something so incredibly corporate and gross in how she uses "work directly with" as a euphemism for "exploit." Fucking sickening.

Well FMAFP is missing the point that pop star fans really do not generate ANY loyalty beyond the weirdo super-fans. Though it sickens me, I have to say that her own fan base is far more "invested" in her career than your average listener to top40 radio (does that even still exist?).

Rumor (or conspiracy theory?) has it the whole Kickstarter campaign was indeed a complicated money laundering scheme funded and/or orchestrated by Scientology.

I will bet one shiny American quarter that the budget for her tour included her personal room, board, and salary for the tour, and her idea of a "loss leader" that actually broke even includes those budgeted costs.

Annoying famous scam artist - she does indeed fit the Scientology profile.

Though I'm sure Scientology could raise well more than $1.2M in no time flat, without resorting to kickstarter.

So great!

The fact that she's trolling and posting on an article ABOUT HER proves what a fucking narcissist and egomaniac she is. Absolutely the worst kind of person and not at all one that I would ever want to support even if I thought her music was enjoyable. Grody.

Sorry 1.2,

I take her word that she didn't make any money on this, but to claim that it was by design after the fact is laughable. Spending $85 to ship a single record to Australia is not implementing a loss leader strategy. It's poor management of resources.

This line is so good. I wish he would become a member on this forum so I could give him a HOF.

I think it's totally plausible. Rich people going out of their way to lose money, or at least make it look like that - tax thing make the most sense.
