Yep, you read that correctly. Pop singer Whitney Houston is charging nearly $1.4 million dollars to perform for one hour at an upcoming charity event in London. In case you’re slow with math, that works out to be about 56,000 dollars-a-minute…almost 10,000 dollars a second. Who would pay that price? The Daily Mail reported that billionaire philanthropist John Caudwell dished out the moola in hopes the singer might ensure the fundraiser’s success.
An anonymous source (how mysterious) said:
“John is hoping Whitney will be worth it. He thinks it’s important to raise the profile of the charity, and eye-catching stars such as Whitney Houston are exactly the sort of people he’s hoping to attract.”
And there’s more! In addition to the crazy ass salary, Whitney is demanding 35 rooms at two five-star hotels, specific food products and various other supplies for her traveling entourage. That’s one hell of an entourage for 1 hour of Do-Re-Mi!
I’m sorry Whitney, but I’m afraid I must unveil the Ecorazzi third generation, recycled and non-chemically treated Paddle of Shame, and administer upon you 3 green whacks. ONE-TWO-THREE!! I hope you know that hurt Mother Earth way more than it hurt you!
Update: Further reports show that Whitney will be getting paid £1.4 million which actually mean $2.78 million dollars. THAT’S INSAAAAANNNNNEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!
