Jennifer Lopez is reportedly being paid $1 million to perform for a wedding (by comparison, she made about $12 million for her stint on “American Idol”).
She joins an elite group of singers who are paid big bucks for private performances. Christina Aguilera reportedly made $1 million to sing for one investor’s Halloween party. That comes out to about $16,666 per minute. It’s rumored stars like Amy Winehouse command similar rates. Even less-established artists can do well. “American Idol” reject Pia Toscano was paid $100,000 to sing at a party just a few weeks after she was kicked off the show.
