Hunty, social media is pissed!
Beyoncé fans are FURIOUS that Ariana Grande got paid twice as much as Queen Bey with some even calling it ‘white privilege’.
But according to The Blast, everyone will be happy to know that the two were actually paid the same. Beyonce, 37, and the Grande, 25, both signed contracts worth $8 million ($4 million per weekend) to headline Coachella.
Earlier this week as Ariana’s big pay day was reported followed by an unsubstantiated claim that the Queen Bey had been paid half that much and many took to social media to express their anger about the disparity.
Founder of We Have Stories, Frederick Joseph, retweeted an article about the alleged pay difference, saying,
“Beyoncé was paid $4 million to Ariana Grande’s $8 million. When I tell you white privilege knows no bounds.”
He later updated the thread with a link to a Billboard article that read Beyonce was paid the exact same amount or possibly more.
And Financial Health Mentor, true or not, posted the meme below on Facebook saying Beyoncé was the smarter business woman, with the caption,
Who knows? They are both rich, crying ALL THE WAY to the bank in the back of a limo.
