Russian producer Iosif Prigozhin criticized gymnast Lyaysan Utyasheva and showman Nikita Dzhigurda, who declared their ability to live comfortably on 50 thousand rubles a month. In his opinion, this is too small a sum.
Prigozhin noted that he spends one and a half to two million rubles a month, since he needs to invest in the work of artists, to shoot videos. In addition, utility bills in his house reach 20-50 thousand.
According to him, celebrities who call 50 thousand rubles a sufficient income are storytellers.
“I am a person who has been working since the age of 12, and I cannot afford to stay in the zone of earning 50 thousand rubles. I do not agree that you can live on this money. Those people who give these comments do not live on 50 thousand rubles, ”he told Channel Five on August 6.
On July 20, Prigozhin said that some representatives of show business have salaries of over 1 million rubles, but at the same time, after all the expenses, they have only 10-30% of the royalties, and many artists are completely forced to live on credit.
