2016 = The year of a real life Final Destination within the entertainment industry?!?

I strongly recalled this past spring of 2016 in an earlier thread that this was some kind of Final Destination type of crap going on. And this was BEFORE Prince's death!

I don't know if any of you have seen one, a few, or all of Final Destination horror films series. But the main theme of the series was simple: When death feels cheated, all hell breaks loose.

I'll leave it up to you to decide if you believe OR know the stories about The Angel Of Death or The Grim Reaper are true or total bullshit. But if nothing else, you cannot help but to acknowledge that when it comes to celebrity deaths, 2016 is/was no ordinary year. Whatever dark forces that already exist within the industry are now speaking louder that before.

This is TonyVanDam and I stand by my words. neutral

seems the entertainment industry has beeen on the $$$$ decline for years. especially since the advent of ipods, music downloading, youtube and etc. that has pretty much closed out the traditional "recca stowes."

seems many bands and musicians make most of their monies by going on tour. recordings by notable artist are not pulling in the profits for the record companies like back n the day.

so in essence the old adage of,

"entertainers are move valuable when they die."

the record companies these entertainers were contracted to have made mega bucks since these they have died.

it's really weird imo that many of them have died under questionable circumstances.

not saying the powers that be in the music/entertainment industry are covert take out men, but seems the money problems they encountered with rebellious musicians or those plagued by drugs and the such cost them heavily.


as a result the record companies and people such as clive davis and sony and etc have garnered mega bucks after the entertainers die.

(i won't even talk about bob marley and the way he died. his net worth today post his death $130 million, and continues to grow.)

Be careful when you say "take out men"! lurking

With that said, you are correct. All you have to do is follow the money to know who benefits the most from someone's death OR murder.

According to CNN, it wasn't that bad a year for celebrity deaths.

And they did an analysis to prove it.

http://www.cnn.com/2016/12/30/entertainment/worst-year-celebrity-deaths-trnd/

We started by looking at the deaths of Oscar nominees in acting categories-- maybe the biggest measure of movie stardom -- going back to 2006. By this yardstick, 2016 was a pretty average year. We lost Debbie Reynolds and Gene Wilder and a few others, but the death toll was nothing like 2014, when 10 Oscar nominees -- including Lauren Bacall, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Robin Williams -- died.

we looked at deaths of Grammy winners in the performing categories only (no technical awards). And yes, 2016 really was a brutal year for our musical heroes. We said goodbye to 13 Grammy winners, including such giants as Leonard Cohen, Glenn Frey and Maurice White. It wasn't as grim as 2006, when 15 Grammy honorees died, including Lou Rawls, Freddy Fender and Billy Preston.

we counted Emmy winners and nominees in the biggest acting categories -- drama and comedy series only -- over the last 11 years. We lost eight of these Emmy winners in 2016, including everyone's favorite neurotic talk-show host, Garry Shandling. When it comes to TV-star deaths that only ties 2014 as the deadliest year of the past decade. That cruel year, we said farewell to Sid Caesar, James Garner and "The Brady Bunch's" Ann B. Davis.

Sports Illustrated has been naming its Sportsman or Sportswoman of the Year -- a worthy yardstick of sports excellence and fame -- since 1954. In 2016, we lost three of them -- boxer Muhammad Ali, golfer Arnold Palmer and hoops coach Pat Summitt. No other year in the last decade has seen the death of more than one.

we also took a look at stars on Hollywood's Walk of Fame. Stroll down Hollywood Boulevard and you'll see lots of recently departed names immortalized in the sidewalk -- 15 of them from this year, including Zsa Zsa Gabor, who was famous for ... being famous. But 2016 is only the third-deadliest year for Walk of Fame recipients, behind 2012 and 2006. In 2006 alone, we lost 18 stars, among them comedian Red Buttons, talk-show host Mike Douglas and Don Knotts,

Yep, 2016 was indeed one Grim Reaper of a year. We lost at least 34 celebrities by our admittedly unscientific count, which factor in such Oscar- and Grammy-winning celebs such as Debbie Reynolds who appear in multiple categories. But it's not quite the worst ever. (In 2009, Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett died on the SAME DAY!)
When it comes to sheer numbers, this year is edged out by 2006, when some 36 celebs died -- including "City Slickers'" Jack Palance and James Brown, the Hardest-Working man in Show Business, who for all we know may still be playing gigs in heaven. So the next time someone complains about 2016 killing all our heroes, tell them it could be worse. It has been worse.

"As a team, we have chosen to stand and interlock arms in unity. We honor those who have fought for the freedom we cherish. And we stand to ensure the riches and freedom and the security of justice for all people." --- Doug Baldwin
