This article discusses Amanda Palmer and her band "Grand Theft Orchestra". I personally am inspired by her creative work ethic and methods she uses to get intouch with her audiences. She stresses how much she trusts her audiences to help her band's movement. She doesnt consider begging and asking for help the same thing. She and her band have successful music, and creative fundamentals.
This article discusses LaVerne Butler's passion for jazz music. She was raised by a musician father who played the saxiphone and inspired her love for soul type music.

This video article, or whatever it is, is about how some "famous" people are still "broke". She speaks about how some "success stories" are based on their social networking status and not the amount of money, awards, & nominations the have to show for their work. I thought it was hilarious.
Pros- This I know from my own research happens for a fact. So hopefully this opens a lot of eyes.
Cons- With fame comes criticisim in every way, shape and form.
*Some people dont want all the money just the recognition of being known to others.
