Rihanna to Get Massive $8-Million Paycheck For Christmas Gig: Report

Rihanna could wake up on Christmas day to find wads of cash under her tree — to the tune of $8 million — according to a report by The Sun. And here we were just hoping not to get a lump of coal.

According to a source, Rihanna could receive a payout of mammoth proportions for flicking on the Christmas lights at a London mall and performing a “mini concert.”

The terms of the contract are still being banged out, but organizers at the Westfield Mall in Stratford, England, are “prepared to pay up to £5 million for her.” She actually did the same gig at the mall back in 2010.

So, let’s just say that the festivities could take up two hours of the Unapologetic time. And that’s generous: Even some full-length concerts don’t last that long. That means she’d earn $4 million per hour, $66,000 per minute, or $1,000 per second.

“Rihanna’s thrilled she has been asked again,” a source tells The Sun. “She knows it’s a big deal and is totally up for it — if it fits in with her schedule.”

Uh, for a fee that large, she’d better rearrange her calendar! What do you think? Are you turning Grinch-green with envy?
