Madonna

Oof that post has generated yet another round of negative headlines. The unfortunate thing is unlike some past (iconic) controversies it's hard to defend her or think, well she has a point. Put away the cutlery, unbraid your hair and pay your people!
 
She usually works within whatever budget is available for any given project and her money is her money. This doesn't excuse people not being paid, but it's nothing new that her mentality is "we're all in this together as starving artists" since that's probably genuinely how she sees it. Her Facetune retoucher ain't getting a cent of her millions.

Unfortunately in the publishing industry it’s very common to have unpaid interns. They are often college students who are given college credit. I worked for free for a magazine in college. It’s often the only way you can get experience to break into a lot of creative fields and the entertainment business.
