Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichenko paid Christina Aguilera $3.6 million to sing two songs at his wedding in the South of France over the weekend, flying her to Cannes in a private jet and putting her up in a $4,000 a night suite with her fiance. “Christina did a brilliant job,” said one wedding guest. “There wasn’t a dry eye in the house when she sang Beautiful. But no-one suspected how much she’d been paid – it’s like winning the Lottery for her.”
How is it that somebody foolish enough to throw down $3.6 million for two songs from Christina Aguilera has the business sense to become a fucking billionaire? You don’t see Bill Gates paying Jessica Simpson $10 million to make a sex tape with a polar bear. Sure, he’s got the money, but you don’t become the richest man in the world making stupid investments in polar bear porn. And a recent article in Forbes magazine points out that polar bear porn is worth way more than Christina Aguilera’s music.
