They get paid HOW much!?!
Katy Perry’s $34M payday and other outrageous
celebrity pay cheques.
It seems Katy Perry is laughing all the way to the bank.
According to TMZ, the pop star knocked back American Idol producers back in the day when they offered her US$20M to appear on one season of the show. Now, her stocks are outta this world, literally!
It’s reported the "Chained To The Rhythm" singer signed on for the reboot series for a measly US$25M (that’s about $34M in Aus dollars!).
This new deal eclipses Mariah Carey’s AU$24M a series, as well as JLo and Ryan Seacrest’s AU$20M a season - bet they’re pisssed!
While it sounds like WAYYYYY toooooo much money for one person, it’s the norm for big celebs to get paid more money in one year than most of us will see in our lives (cue sad-face emoji).
But Katy - who’s made it to the Forbes’s Richest female list as the highest paid celeb in 2015 - isn’t the only one rolling in hundred dollar bills… here are some other stars with a bit of chump change in their pockets.
This blonde babe plays Penny on The Big Bang Theory and, along with her co-stars, earns AU$1.3M an episode for the sitcom.
It might not sound like much compared to the AI salaries BUT there are 24 eps a season, so actually, the stars of the show make about AU$32M a series.
He may have been seeing dead people in The Sixth Sense but turns out Bruce Willis also saw a bunch of dollar signs! The actor made about AU$160M for the box office hit, which was released in 1999.
So this is how #badgalriri affords all those diamonds!
The Barbadian singer reportedly got paid AU$1.3M to sit front row in Karl Lagerfeld’s 2012 runway show, which lasted about 30 minutes. That’s almost $44,000 A MINUTE to sit there and look at pretty clothes. #lifegoals

Hello, from the other side indeed! The rich side that is!! Adele’s stellar sales for her latest album 25 reportedly means the singer is paid AU$144,000 A DAY!
And back home, it was slightly less money bit still a “What the?” moment recently when it was discovered US actor Tom Arnold was getting paid $40,000 A WEEK to sit around the African jungle in the latest season of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! Australia. WHA?
