Despite speculation that she’s miffed over her recent Grammy snub, rapper and American Idol judge Nicki Minaj is still proving she can earn top dollar. In fact, she even topped rival diva Beyonce by a cool million for her New Year’s Eve hosting duties!

Entertainmentwise reports that both superstars are performing in Las Vegas to usher in 2013, Nicki at the Pure Nightclub at Caesars Palace and Beyonce at an invitation-only party at the Wynn Hotel. Nicki is being paid an impressive $5 million to lead partygoers in a raucous celebration, while Beyonce is getting $4 million to perform across town.

‘Tis true that Beyonce has taken a year off to take care of her wee one, Blue Ivy, who was born in January. But it wasn’t long ago that the “Single Ladies” singer could command a top-earning payday.

Given the opportunity, which party would you rather attend?
