Madonna's $50M Concert Windfall: $165,00 A Minute, Says Report

MADONNA is to sign the most lucrative contracts of her career - playing two gigs in Dubai for £12.5MILLION...

The Queen Of Pop is finalising negotiations on a deal to finish her forthcoming world tour in the oil-rich Arab state in November.

By my calculations, if one of the gigs - for which she will get £7.5million - runs to 90 minutes she will pocket a staggering £83,333 [about $165,000] a minute.

That's a pretty impressive pay day by any standards.

And if that wasn't enough, she is also in talks to perform at a private party for a mystery punter while she is out there which will earn her another £5million.

My Madge man told me: "Madonna is about to break another record by playing the most lucrative concert of her whole career - or anyone's career for that matter.
