The ten things rock stars do to try to remain relevant when their stars start to fade
7. Marrying up
The easiest way, as a musician, to keep some money in your bank account is to marry up. A perfect example of this is Victoria Beckham. Beckham made her millions as a Spice Girl but quickly realized those bitches were going nowhere, so she married the "ab-ulous" David Beckham. Not only did she up her fashion game by marrying this famous soccer star, but she's now like royalty or some shit. Ridiculous and brilliant.
6. Selling their music
There may be nothing worse than hearing your favorite song used for a commercial; this betrayal (yes, it is a betrayal) kills all of us at one time or another. And a crap-ton of musicians have licensed their music to shill various products. The list of sellouts includes: the Rolling Stones, Green Day, Madonna, the Beatles, Johnny Cash, Bill Withers, the Cars and Robert Palmer. The list goes on and on, but it's hard to type over the tears.
Eric Gruneisen Let's just say, there's a reason this dude is wearing shades.
5. Getting horrifying plastic surgery
We understand that this takes money, but these ex-celeb musicians seem to think that getting some terrifying plastic surgery will, in some way, revamp their careers and...they are wrong. Case in point: Gene Simmons. His ugly mug is almost as bad as his ridiculous attitude, but to be fair, it's probably tough to age with anything resembling grace when you can list "fire-breathing demon that bled from the mouth" as a career.
