Celebs Rake It In On New Year’s Eve

The most lucrative day of the year for any performer is New Year’s Eve. And this year at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, people are getting a big old treat when they see Coldplay and Jay-Z because Gwyneth Paltrow is rumored to be joining her husband, Chris Martin, onstage!

Both his band and Jay-Z have each been paid up to $1 million to perform for 2,500 guests at the new hotel. And the party cost $25 million! But the hotel is being hush-hush about all their details…

Another big cash earner will be Rihanna who is hosting a party at Pure in Vegas for $250,000. DJ Tiesto is spinning in Miami to the tune of $200,000.

Nicki Minaj is reportedly getting $75,000 to perform at Miami’s Mansion while Drake is said to be getting $250,000 for his gig at Wall at the W Hotel South Beach.

However, some folks are fairly cheap – like Snooki. Duh, right? She’s getting $10,000 for the party at Madame Tussauds.

But for the most part, anyone who isn’t hosting a party is gonna be tucked away in the warm tropical locales and relaxing versus trying to earn some dough.
