2008 was nothing short of a fantastic year for the music industry! What, you think I'm kidding? Just ask the douche-turkey pictured above (you know he and Diddy totally kick it old school). His name is Edgar Bronfman and he's CEO of Warner Music Group. According to the Wall Street Journal, Warner Music Group Corp. recently paid Bronfman an extra $3 million for doing such a damn good job last year.
Hmm...let's take a look a Warner's stats for 2008. Stock dropped by 25%? It reported a loss of $56 million? Yeah, okay, I guess a $3 million bonus makes complete sense!
Way to go, Bronfman!
