There is nothing wrong with being confident about your self-worth and securing what you believe is an appropriate amount of money for your talents. A good artist knows how to market themselves and handle their business so they they get paid what they know they are worth. But what happens when an artist actually believes they are worth more than what they really are? What is a label or touring company to do?
Rehabbers, the tea this week is kind of telling.
Jay-Z who is partnership with Live Nation through his label/management company Roc Nation began talks with former to broker a tour for Starlet Bey Bey. I know the alleged six nannies are expensive and so was the million dollar nursery they allegedly got for B.I.C. Inc , but on what planet does he think that his wife is worth $150 million bucks in THIS RECESSION and when 4lop hasn’t even sold at least five million worldwide?
The Telegraph has the dets on this fuckery. Jesus, take the wheel.
Jay-Z is in talks to secure Beyoncé Knowles a $150 million touring deal, it has been reported.
The rapper is believed to have approached Live Nation about the prospect of his superstar wife hitting the road. He believes the lucrative shows will be a sell out all over the world.
“Just weeks after the birth of Blue Ivy, Jay met with Live Nation to discuss a tour for Beyoncé,” a source told New York Post. “He wanted a deal worth about $150million, but they countered with a lower offer.”
Beyoncé currently has a joint management deal with Jay’s label Roc Nation and Live Nation.
Earlier this year, the 30-year-old singer hinted that she would be interested in embarking on a world tour.
Beyoncé is in high demand despite taking a break from her career following the birth of her first child, daughter Blue Ivy, in January.
Simon Cowell is believed to be eager for her to join the judging panel on the US version of The X Factor. The music mogul was reportedly so desperate to sign her up he offered her a deal worth $500 million.
However, the star’s father Mathew Knowles recently dismissed rumours she may join the TV talent show.
“It would never happen as Beyoncé would never do that,” he explained earlier this month. “There are a few things that she would never do and that is one. It’s not for her.”
Reps for Jay-Z and Beyoncé have not commented on the tour reports.
First of all, I refuse to believe that Simon Cowell offered that child half a billion dollars to speak stupidly in front of cameras week after week. Not in this recession and not EVER.
Second, like I said before, Live Nation would be a fool to give that girl so much money for an album that her hardcore stans of “millions” didn’t even bother to purchase. And we all know she has not been a sell out in all her concerts like it’s claimed when they were selling tickets for 20 bucks. Oh wait, she was just trying to make things affordable for her fans. Riiiiiiigght. Madonna tells people that her concerts tickets at $340 is “worth it” and demands they scrape their pennies together to come and you know what? THEY DO. She rarely has an empty seats in any venue in any country and she doesn’t even sing live or dance well. But her music is FIRE and she puts on a show and then some!
The concerts she did last year was a test run. And we all know that the whole “selling in 22 seconds” was straight up BS as we proved right here on DR so while I think maybe Humps was just using that number as a starting off point to start negotiations. Because he really doesn’t think after all this controversy they’ve creation and their disgusting behavior, that homegirl is really all that high in demand right? RIGHT?
SMH. Fed girl please hook me up with some Cyraquil or however you spell it. Because I gotta sleep this one off.
