When it comes to money and millennials who show off the fact that they have a lot of it, the consensus is almost unilateral distaste. But why is that? Is it because they so effortlessly relish in a world of exotics and luxuries that many of us will probably never get to experience? Or maybe it’s because they were “born into it” as opposed to “earning it”?

Specifically, they charge that sites like Spotify and Pandora prevent artists from ever seeing the full fruits of their generated revenue via those sites.
