Jennifer Lopez gets $2 million for private concert

Jennifer Lopez has been paid a staggering $2 million by a Russian billionaire to perform at a private concert.

Andrei Melnichenko has asked the Latin star to put on a 40-minute show at his wife Aleksandra's 30th birthday party Saturday night.

Melnichenko is paying $1.2 million for the performance and a further $800,000 to fly J.Lo's entourage from the US to Britain where the party will take place. The bash will take place in the Berkshire countryside although J.Lo and her entourage will stay in a top London hotel which is included in the $800,000 payment.

A source close to the singer said, "Andrei and Aleksandra are huge fans of J.Lo and were thrilled when she agreed to sing for them. It will be an unusual audience for J.Lo, as the bash will be packed with billionaires."

The party, which will take place in a marquee decorated like a plush nightclub, will be an extravagant occasion, with the all-day event including a cabaret and circus act.

This is not the first time the couple - who count Chelsea football club's billionaire owner Roman Abramovich among their friends - have splashed out on a celebrity performance.

When they married in 2005, they paid a reported £2million for Christina Aguilera to sing at their wedding in the South of France.

For $2 million, she would have to do other things for me as well. ;-)

I can understand someone wanting Jennifer Lopez at their party, but I don't understand why they would want her there to sing. Personally, if I had millions to throw away, I would pay her the same amount to not sing.

Yup. J-Lo wouldn't be walking straight for a week if I was ever drunk enough to pay her $2 million. Not that I have anywhere near $2 mil. B-)
The cake is a lie.
