Laurie Anderson Net Worth $2 Million Dollars

Laurie Anderson Net Worth: Laurie Anderson is an American experimental performance artist, composer and musician who has a net worth of $2 million. Initially trained as a sculptor, Anderson made her first art-piece performance in the late 1960s. Staying active throughout the 1970s and the 1980s, Anderson grew to worldwide stardom in 1981 when her single “O Superman” reached #2 on the United Kingdom pop charts. Later on, she went to make a go at both acting and directing with the 1986 concert film Home of the Brave. Furthermore, she is a leader in electronic music, having invented some new apparatus that she’s exploited in her recordings and performance art shows. It was in 1977 that she created a tape-bow, and after that in the late 1990s, she developed a talking stick, among other creations. Laurie Anderson was Lou Reed’s wife from 2008 until his departure on October 27, 2013.
