Nicki Minaj One-Ups Beyonce with $5 Million Hosting Gig in Las Vegas

Subscribe to PopCrush on

Nicki Minaj may be the queen of rap, but she’s also the queen of getting paid. The ‘Freedom’ rapstress is hosting a New Years’ Eve party at Pure nightclub in Las Vegas for a reported $5 million. The fee tops Beyonce‘s paycheck of $4 million for her invitation-only Sin City show at the Wynn hotel.

Now, we are not sure if this is a sign that Beyonce’s marquee value is diminishing or that Minaj has better negotiators when it comes to getting that cheddar. Either way, it’s a great payday for both superstars to ring in the new year.

It’s unclear if Minaj will be performing songs at her lavish club event, but for $5 million, we expect her to at least do triple backflips onstage.

All jokes aside, Minaj and Beyonce had quite a phenomenal year. Minaj earned a platinum album with ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’ and Beyonce dropped her biggest project of them all — her beautiful baby Blue Ivy.

Happy New Year, Nicki and Bey! And, um, can we borrow $1 million? Just kidding…
