Mother’s Day Playlist: 12 Artists Who Have Their Momagers To Thank

Not to send you into a panic, but Mother’s Day is approaching. And while, yes, that means paying our respects to the hard working matriarchs who made us eat our vegetables and put up with our bratty teenage years, we’re shaking things up a bit by turning the spotlight on “momagers.” No, we’re not talking about that frightful Toddlers & Tiaras stage mom style of management. These artists were lucky enough to have been groomed by their business-savvy moms, who applied the perfect mix of strategy and tender love & care.

Though momagers give some record labels the jitters, it usually works in the artist’s favor to have a nurturing family member with a vested interest in overseeing the ins and outs of everything from bookings to finance. And let’s face it — who wants to see you win more than Mom?

Flip through to see our wicked playlist of artists whose devoted momagers molded their careers.
