What Celebrities Do for Money

Mariah Carey was paid 1 million US Dollars to sing at a party hosted by the son of ousted Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi in 2008. In 2009, Beyonce was paid 2 million US Dollars to perform at a Caribbean party hosted by another of Gaddafi’s sons. When both celebrities found out about the events, they both donated their profits to charity afterwards. Usher also performed for the Gaddafis and promised to also donate his earnings.

Hilary Swank, on the other hand, attended the birthday party of Ramzan Kadyrov though no one knows if she was paid to grace the event. Kadyrov is the Chechen leader who has been accused of torture, killings and abductions by human rights groups.

Kim Kardashian and Soulja Boy are paid 10,000 US Dollars each to endorse products on Twitter.

Also, Kardashian was paid an undisclosed amount to cut the ribbon to a public toilet in New York sponsored by Charmin. Kardashian usually charges 100,000 US Dollars per appearance. Even striptease artist Dita Von Teese asks 50,000 US Dollars just to grace an event.
