Pop stars upped their multiple revenue streams years ago when record sales started to tank. Merch used to be a T-shirt. Now it’s jewelry, shoes, hats, hand bags, even nail polish. Today stars are more serious than ever with their non-music endeavors. Kanye West, J Lo andSelena Gomez (to name a few) have their own clothing lines. Beyoncé is pushing her active wear. Almost every artist has a perfume or cologne. P Diddy is peddling his Ciroc Vodka brand. For an A list artist the simple act of showing up at a fashion show can bring in big Benjamins. But, probably the most creative award goes to Pharrell Williams and Daft Punk. After their hit single, Get Lucky, they brandedGet Lucky condoms... I didn’t see that coming. And now it has recently been announced that Taylor Swift has her own line of greeting cards with Papyrus. So you may not get Taylor to sing Happy Birthday to you but you might get one of her cards!
