Demi Lovato Believes Aliens Will Save Us From a Nuclear Apocalypse If Everyone Meditates Really Hard
Does anyone know the intricacies of a transaction like this? Isn't that money taxed? I'm probably wrong, but I'm just wondering why more celebrities don't write checks like this. In my simple mind, it's like:
Every year you can take $1 million and write ten of those checks to ten different schools.
That seems so easy when you're being paid $13 million for a role...
I say this now, but once I got my secluded home (and by secluded I don't mean ENORMOUS, fuck my labor AND the cleaning bill), my dogs and my car I would have so much excess... I'd so want to use my money to really help places that need it. Even with a child or two, I feel like this is still possible.
How wrong am I?
