So Beyonce performed at Isha Ambani’s pre-wedding celebrations in Udaipur, but the one question on everyone’s lips since the performance was, How much did Beyonce charge?.
According to sources Beyonce normally charges $3 million for performances, that is minus any expenses, so if you wish to put a figure on the fee paid to Beyonce by the Ambani’s, try looking at $4 million! That’s Rs 28 crore.
According to Bustle, Beyonce isn’t the most expensive performer money can buy. That honour goes to Jennifer Lopez, who can charge up to $5 million (Rs 35 crore) per performance. Billboard previously reported that a Texas billionaire paid the Rolling Stones $7 million to perform for an hour at his 60th birthday party. Christina Aguilera, according to Radar Online, was paid $1 million for a Halloween party in 2010. Mariah Carey charges the same amount, according to Glamour UK. Meanwhile, Cher charges $1.5 million, according to AOL, and Beyonce’s husband, rapper Jay Z demands $1 million, according to Contact Music.
Beyonce was the highest earning woman in the music industry in 2017, with earnings exceeding $105 million. Bloomberg recently reported that billionaire industrialist Mukesh Ambani shelled out over $100 million for his daughter’s wedding parties, which saw several Indian and international celebrities, such as actors Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh; cricketer Sachin Tendulkar; and politician Hillary Clinton in attendance.
