Nickelback, a band so bad that the New York Times described it as "risible" not once but twice, got its own 360 deal. Jay-Z got $150 million, Madonna got $120 million, and Shakira somewhere between $70 and $100 million. I can only hope that the deal, scheduled to start after the terrible, awful, horrible, no-good band finishes its current recording contract, is not as lucrative as any of the ones that preceded it.

Clearly I must find a new band with which to torture my sister.

Ew - what is the deal with Nickelback?? Why do they continue to be so successful? Is this, like, a candid camera thing, and at some point, Ashton Kutcher will jump out and tell the country that we've been punk'd???

I shake my head in shame.
