The musician Yuri Loza criticized his colleagues in show business, in particular, the singer Lolita Milyavskaya, in an interview with Vechernaya Moskva, for too high, in his opinion, prices for performances.
Earlier, Milyavskaya said on the air of the "Secret for a Million" program on the NTV channel that she earns at least 40 thousand euros for each appearance on the stage.
“When Lolita goes out to the whole of Russia on the central channel and says that her performance costs more than 40 thousand euros, she is not afraid that the people will think:“Isn't she getting drunk?”Although I ask myself: what should an artist do for that kind of money?"
- declared Loza.
According to him, it is wrong when people who are engaged in a necessary and responsible business receive less money than "an artist for 20 minutes of standing on stage."
“I’m not saying that a professional performer should work for a penny. I’m talking about the fact that people who do important work should earn accordingly,”
- said Loza.
At the same time, the singer added that, with all the desire, he is not able to introduce "anti-crisis" rates for the performances of his team. “I cannot pay people less money. I am responsible - they have families,” he explained.
Loza added that he builds on the financial capabilities of the customer and sometimes performs for free at charity festivals.
