J.Lo cashes in on birthday bash



Tbdjlo042407 London’s Daily Mail reports that Jennifer Lopez will be paid $2-million to sing at the birthday party of Russian tycoon Andrei Melnichenko’s wife. She’ll get $1.2-million for her 40-minute appearance plus $800,000 for expenses, the paper reports, mere pocket change for Melnichenko, who’s worth about $5-billion. In case you can’t do the math, that’s about $50,000 per minute. A great rate, exscept that the Russian paid twice as much for a personal appearance by Christina Aguilera last year. Either way, it’ll pay for a lot of return trips to the block for J.Lo. [Photo: Getty Images]
