Justin Bieber fans wanting to book the controversial Canuck singer for their next birthday party or some other event better start saving their pennies. The "Baby" hitmaker joins an elite group of music artists who currently receive $1 million dollars or more per performance.
According to an article posted May 23 at MuchMusic.com, the 20-year-old Stratford, Ont. badboy's fees were among those released by booking website Deggy Entertainment, who recently unveiled a list of clients and their booking prices. Other artists commanding million dollar engagement fees include: Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, Dave Matthews, James Taylor, Justin Timberlake, Madonna and Taylor Swift.
Although not quite in the million dollar fee bracket, Adele, Coldplay and Lady Gaga each receive a heady $75k per performance. A full list of artist and fees are available for viewing at MuchMusic.com.
The Biebs is up for two awards in the categories of Fave Arist and for International Video By A Canadian for his song "All That Matters." The MMVAs will take place on Sunday June 15 from Toronto's MuchMusic headquarters.
On May 24, Bieber took to his Instagram feed to post a snippet of a new track, which appears to be called “It’s Working” and may be inspired by his "on again - off again" relationship with singer Selena Gomez. His only comment on the post was, “You know exactly what to do to hurt me.”
The multi-Juno winnner, who was booed for his ongoing brushes with the law at the 2014 Juno Awards held in Winnipeg, Man. in March, may be trying to change his image. Earlier this week, Bieber, who is "trying to be a better person" after numerous legal woes in recent months, reportedly shocked his fellow VIP guests when he donated $545,000 at the amfAR's 21st Cinema Against AIDS Gala in Antibes, France.
