I don’t know where you’re partying on New Year’s Eve, but if you’re planning on kicking it with the stars, you’re probably paying a grip considering club organizers are paying crazy cash to have celebrities help them ring in 2011.Â The New York Post gave a peek into the checks that some of your favorite entertainers are expecting in return for helping ring in the New Year.
Jay-Z leads the pack and is reportedly bringing in a cool $1 million toÂ perform in front of 2,500 invited guests at the new $4 billionÂ Cosmopolitan Resort and Casino Launch Party in Vegas. If Jay’s getting paid like that to party, it’s no wonder he can drop$350,000 on Birkin bags for Beyonce like “money ain’t a thang.” Bey will be at the party too, though she’s not expected to hit the stage.Â She’ll probably be hanging in the audience with the couple’s friend Gwyneth Paltrow, who’s expected to be in the house since her hubbyÂ ChrisÂ Martin, the lead singerÂ ofÂ Coldplay, is performing with Jay-Z (Chris is getting a million too!).
Rihanna’s also making her way to VegasÂ at Pure nightclub at Caesar’s Palace and will need her umbrella-ella since promoters are making it rain on her to the tune of $250,000 for her performance.
In Miami, Drake is performing at the W South Beach Hotel for a $250,000 price tag. Not a bad deal considering he’ll get to hang with friends like LeBron James and Jamie Foxx afterward.Â Young Money princess Nicki Minaj will be down theÂ South Beach streets at Mansion raking in $75,000 to perform.
Trey Songz is sure to be having the women asking him for bottles of RosĂ©, since he’s bringing in aproximantelyÂ $37,500 for the night toÂ host a party in Miami at Lux.
Getting paid some people’s annual salaries for one night in the club? NowÂ that’s how to live the party life!
