Celebrity Status – Razzies, Oscars, Beyonce And Drake

By: Julie B



For Tuesday, January 24th:

Remember that private Beyonce performance in Dubai we mentioned yesterday? Apparently, she earned a whopping $24 million paycheque for the show. It lasted for 85 minutes which means she would have earned approximately $282,000 per minute.

In her upcoming memoir, Pamela Anderson accuses Tim Allen of exposing himself to her on her first day on the Home Improvement set. He denies the accusation.

Drake paused his concert Sunday night after a fan fell from the mezzanine at the The Apollo Theater. The fan and other audience members reported that they were OK… and so the show went on.

With her ‘Avatar’ and ‘Avengers’ credits, Zoe Saldaña just became the first actor to have four movies make more than $2 billion at the box office.

”Morbius” and Disney’s ”Pinocchio” are among the year’s worst movies according to the Razzie nominations, and Jared Leto and Tom Hanks were nominated for their individual performances in those movies. ”Blonde” received a pile of nominations too, but not for Ana de Armas‘ performance… because she received an Oscar nomination!
