KUALA LUMPUR: South Korean superstar Psy will be performing at Barisan Nasional’s Chinese New Year open house in Penang on Feb 11.
But the question that’s buzzing in everyone’s mind is: who’s paying for Psy and how much is he paid?
According to an industry source, the Gangnam Style hitmaker commands a minimum pay cheque of US1mil (RM3.1mil).
That’s just for him to horse around to the quirky beats of his phenomenal YouTube hit, “Gangnam Style”.
Yes, Psy is more expensive than teen pop superstar Justin Bieber, who’s paid US1 mil for a full concert in KL.
The runaway rap star is expected to perform Gangnam Style in front of 60,000 guests, including Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
The BN Chinese New Year open house will be held at Han Chiang High School in George Town from 10am to 1pm.
