In La La Land, there are a lot of celebrities singing “money, money, money, money … money” and believe it or not, many of them are raking in the dough for doing absolutely nothing.
According to reports, Blac Chyna collected a cool $15k for a nightclub appearance in Los Angeles over the weekend, and while that might seem like a lot of money for doing nothing, it’s chump change compared to what other celebrities make for a club appearance.
Take for instance Chyna’s nemesis Kylie Jenner, who took home a cool $100,000 for appearing at her own birthday party at a Montreal nightclub.
Kylie’s big sister, Kim Kardashian commands an estimated $50,000 – $500,000 appearance fee while her sister Khloe can take home up to $150,000 for showing her face at a nightclub. Kourtney on the other hand commands a check of approximately $40k to appear at soirees.
Blac Chyna’s BFF Amber rose makes $25,000 – $40,000 to party and if you see Nicki Minaj hanging out in a nightclub, there’s a good chance someone handed her a duffle bag with a quarter million dollars in it. Drake at the same club? You’re gonna need to double that duffle bag.
If you want Drizzy’s frenemy Jay Z to hang out in your club and perform a few songs, you’d better dig deep into your wallets because it’s going to cost you an estimated $1.5 million. His wife, Beyonce, needs even more. The mother of three once did a private New Year’s Eve show and collected a $2 million check for her services.
And while you may find this hard to believe, people are still paying Vanilla Ice appearance fees. In fact, he pockets exactly what Chyna pocketed this weekend: $15k.
Bravo to Ice for still getting his money decades removed from relevancy.
Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice
Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.
On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.
It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.
So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.
“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”
Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”
And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.
For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”
Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
