Fuck the search button.

Which one of you kids e-mailed Perez Hilton pretending to know Prince?

If Paul did pay Prince 4.8 million dollars.. I expect purple slushies.. and for Prince to take requests from the crowd.

Don't believe everything you read. If you figure 60,000 people per day at Coachella with $85 per day ticket prices, you gross about $15.3 million (unless my math is off). And this is gross revenues...so you add in cost of expenses for 100+ other artists as well as employees, groundskeepers, etc, then your probably netting a great deal less than that. I have a hard time believing they'd put out nearly a third of their gross revenues for one act, even someone like Prince.

But wtf do I know?

How reliable is Perez Hilton anyway?

Yablo's right. Even after employees, bands, stages, electronics, art installations, etc, any event of this magnitude is going to have to have all sorts of insurance and permits and soforth. That shit's EXPENSIVE.

Are you factoring in the money made off of food, drinks, merchandise, and advertising though?

What about the 50 safari tents for $4,000? And the other tents for $700, plus the camping passes. Your math is missing a few items.

Don't forget that they pay me in the high six figures to appear at Coachella. That's another expense.

why did they offer $5M to reunite the Smiths then?

the gross revenue wasn't going to be higher.

the extra few million is to go towards all the fees Prince is going to have to pay for playing until 2am after Kraftwerk.....
