According to the NY Daily News, Bruno Mars has been offered over $1 million to perform at a bat mitzvah for the daughter to Russian oligarch Leonard Blavatnik.
The 56-year-old billionaire earned his fortune through several different business ventures with his company, Access Industries. Interesting enough, one of Access Industries' subsidiaries is Warner Music Group, which owns Atlantic Records. Atlantic also happens to be the same record label Bruno Mars has released both his albums through, most recently Unorthodox Jukebox. The connection may be pure coincidence.
Bruno is scheduld to perform five songs at the bat mitzvah and will be paid $250,000 per song. The event will take place at a secret location in New York. No word yet on what songs he will perform, but his recent single "Gorilla" is likely in the running for being included on the set list.
Mazel tov, Bruno Mars.
