10 Superstar Singers and the Crappy Jobs They Used to Have

Making a living doing what you love is one of the most gratifying but often most elusive accomplishments. When you can rest your head at night knowing that you’ve spent your day exhausting your skills and talents pursuing worthwhile goals and dreams, and while doing so you’re able to bring home the delicious bacon, you’ll know you’ve “made it.” One problem with chasing your dreams, however, especially when they involve artistic expression, is that the process generally involves serving chicken wings or packing turnips into paper bags.
