Before playing Tampa's Jingle Ball, Pitbull says he got $1 million to promote Florida



Well, this should make Saturday's 93.3-FLZ Jingle Ball a little more interesting.

Days before headlining Tampa's year-end pop party at Amalie Arena, Pitbull broke his silence and released terms of his much-ballyhooed contract with Visit Florida to promote the Sunshine State on stage, television and social media.

Facing a lawsuit from House Speaker Richard Corcoran, Pitbull posted his previously secret contract on Twitter. He was paid $1 million, including a $250,000 talent fee and $300,000 for promoting Florida on social media at least twice a month with the hashtag #LoveFL.

"It's been an honor to represent Miami and the Sunshine State," Pitbull wrote on Twitter. "I've taken Miami and Florida worldwide — WAY before any contract, and will do so way after. I love my home state. When asked to take on a New Year's show, I INSISTED it be live from Florida. #LoveFL Since birth.....and till the day I die. Dale!"
