Olly Murs has been incredibly successful since his days spent on the X Factor, but according to the singer he's having some money concerns. The singer admitted that since he made so much so quickly, he kind of went overboard and spent more than he should have. Now, he's being more careful and only allowing himself to spend a certain amount each year.
“I’ve given myself a salary recently, because I think it’s important. For the first two years I was like, ‘Yeah, I’ll buy that and this. Mum, what do you want? I’ll get it for you,’” he told The Mirror.
“But then you watch shows like the Big Reunion and it opens your eyes to realize that this can all go so quickly, and you’ve got to be wise with your money. Even Ed Sheeran talks about paying himself a salary.”
The singer says he gives himself $1,200 to spend each month, and most of it goes to bills. He also revealed that it helps him stayed grounded.
"I've got mates in different jobs to me, and they're not on the same amount of money as me. So I don't want to be like a big time Charlie," he said.
