Olsen Twins richer than U2
 
I just saw it in my paper. Each Olsen Twin is worth $300 million, which is more than the estimated $100 million each U2 member is worth. HOW? U2 has been making records and touring since before they were born. U2 pay no income taxes, being Irish. U2's stuff is more expensive, and better. How did this happen?

Not to sound negative regarding the Olsen twins- I watched them grow up on Full House and they seem like appealling decent girls, but they're really more 'pop culture' as opposed to rock icons. I would say that the U2's vast expenses for tours etc eats up a chunk, plus the money is actually split 5 ways with Paul McGuinness, plus their number of philanthropic/ charitable contributions, some of which we likely don't even hear about.... Plus U2 have families to support, likely have money invested in funds for their children's futures etc.

Olson twins dont go on huge tours like POPMART or ZOOTV that cost a lot of money.

Olsen twins are both under 18, have no expenses of their own. They can just let the money sit and accumulate. They have themselves in every market possible, and it's easy to make money when you get all that revenue and have nothing to spend it on.

I'd like to see how the Olsen twins would do if they had to finance something like Popmart.

I read that, and in the rest of the story, they said the twins are counting the day when they reach their 18th b-day- 197 days, next June. When they are 18, they plan to go to Columbia University, but also invest in their own film making company and put out movies. So it looks like with making movies, their money will only multiply, if they are successful.

U2 are cooler.

TiaraGurl 11-29-2003 07:20 PM

Point of clarification-U2 does not pay taxes in Ireland because they are artists correct?
