Lady Gaga ‘paid $2m’ to sing at opening of European Games

American pop superstar Lady Gaga was paid a whopping $2 million to sing at the opening ceremony of the European Games in Baku, according to Eurosport.

Baku, one of the richest capital cities in Eastern Europe thanks to the oil money in Azerbaijan, witnessed the singer perform a set which was widely acclaimed as a superb centrepiece for the ceremony as the first ever European Games opened up on Friday night.

It subsequently emerged that her performance didn’t come cheap, with the eye-watering sum (for a set of just 10 minutes) in stark contrast to the fees demanded by the likes of Paul McCartney at the opening of the London 2012 Olympics.
