It must be great to be paid more than £600,000 without having to concern yourself with the finer details about who will actually be signing your cheque.
But there’s a big problem with not bothering to find out who has hired you, as Mariah Carey has just discovered.
She gave us an insight into how out of touch with reality she really is when she revealed she was paid the eye-watering amount for a one-off gig – for the family of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. Now she’s embarrassed, even though she’s not the only one to have been caught out cosying up to him.
Carey says artists need to learn from this and take responsibility for who hires them in future. Far from educating us, her Earth-shattering advice proves just how cossetted these singers are.
