Bringing sexy back isn’t cheap. Justin Timberlake proved that with the price tag he recently placed on a private event. Got a guess at how much JT charged? A thousand dollars? Ten thousand?

That’s chump change for an act like Justin. The former boy bander charged a jaw-dropping $1.3 million for an acoustic set. We repeat: one point three million dollars. Excuse us while we reevaluate our career choices.

Justin’s performance supposedly didn’t disappoint (we’d hope not for a price like that!). According to a Page Six report, the solo act was a tenth anniversary surprise for Jill Bikoff. Name not familiar? Her husband, J. Darius Bikoff, is the founder of Glacéau, the company behind mega-brands Vitaminwater and Smartwater.

Justin likely seemed a good deal to Mr. Bikoff; after all, business world behemoth Coca-Cola purchased his company for more than $4 billion back in 2007, with J. Darius personally making a reported $325 million from that one deal alone.

Justin took the stage at the couple’s party hosted at New York’s NoMad Hotel on November 8 for their art collector, real estate tycoons, and fellow multi-millionaire friends.

“Expensive rare wines were served,” a source tells Page Six of the lavish evening. “There were burlesque dancers as the centerpiece of every table. It was insane.”

No offense, Anonymous Source, but “insane” seems like an understatement.
