Kathy Griffin has seriously pissed off a club in New York’s Chelsea district, which means she’s pissed off a large chunk of her fan base, which is homosexual heavy. The folks at Splash, a club catering to a gay clientele, asked Griffin to perform there in September, but she turned them and their $5,000 down. She wanted $30,000 and a $10,000 rider. “On her show she’s always like, ‘My gays’ and ‘I love the gays,’ but it’s totally opposite in real life,” said a Splash spokesgay. “We were taken aback by her response. If she had love for her gay fans she’d do it. I mean, J.Lo just performed at Gay Pride for free. I guess it’s all about the money.” You bet. Seems like if she divorced her husband over $75,000, she’s not gonna perform for a bunch of fags for $5,000. Do the mathrimony.
However, at the shallow end of the talent pool, Kevin Federline gets paid $20,000 just to show up at parties, bless him. Just to show up. Maybe enjoy a cocktail. It’s said he’s earned upwards of $700,000 in only the last four months. Before you stick pins in that doll, know that the $700,000 includes his $250,000 for endorsing Blue Martin clothes and $25,000 a day promoting Virgin Mobile phones. But he’s got that Jive Records deal looming, which could pay him $300,000 per CD. Now stick the pins in.
