    I'm not a mathematician but does netting $17.8 million from a gross of 52.3 million dollars sound right?

    No it wasn't! I just thought her portion would be a little larger than that. She still made a bundle!

    I mean how do they know the touring percentages? Like Carrie take from the tour is around 34% of the revenues, but in Beyonce's section they claimed she made less than 1/3 profit from the revenues. Where does that come from? They're full of it.

    Speculation is right.
    Also don't these tours often have sponsors ? Wouldn't that help shoulder some of the costs.

    No I know, that's why it's crazy from these publications to even print them, haha.

    In the top 3 in country is pretty amazing!!! When you consider how the country industry likes to "present" itself. It is certainly no wonder how and why Carrie continues to be a radio darling!!

    Sad fact that she is a woman and treated as such, and yet she does the top level of heavy lifting in promoting the genre!!!!!!

    ? Less than 1/3 means less than 33%, which is pretty close to 34%. Billboard isn't going to use a phrasing like "less than 1/3" to describe 10% or even 20%. More likely upper 20's, lower 30's. Which makes sense because Beyonce's tour is a much bigger production and more people need to be paid.

    Yeah, but it looked like it was less than 30%, I just didn't do the conversion. My piont was how do they determine who made what percentage, it seems random.
