Kanye West seems to really like Hawaii, where he is recording his new album, A Good Ass Job. So much so that he has put his kind of boring 3-bedroom, 4,214-square-foot Hollywood house, built in 2002 at 7882 Fareholm Drive, up for sale for $3,995,000. (It’s way overbuilt on the lot, which is only 5,320 square feet.) The decor is what you’d expect: the cool earth-tones and open space of the “Love Lockdown” video, set of by bright-blue pop art, giant-sized children toys and Takashi Murakami stuff. It gets a little Romper-Roomy sometimes, but the fish-tank bathtub is the best idea since Hot Tub Time Machine. Or, you know, you could buy an adorable, very L.A. 2-bedroom house up the next block for $799,000. Your call.
How do artists make money on YouTube? For starters, by putting music on YouTube for free with a digital music distributor.
In great news for artists, labels and streamers, Twitch is apparently nearing a licensing deal with NMPA to pay artists for music on Twitch streams.
