Mariah's Million Dollar Performance

Mariah Carey probably had the best New Years out of any other celebrity we know. Not only was she vacationing in St. Barts with hubby Nick Cannon and close friends, she also got paid $1 million to sing just four songs at a New Year's Eve party.

Libyan dictator Colonal Gaddafi's son Saif paid the lump sum for Mimi to perform at Nikki Beach Club on the Caribbean island of St Barts, reports

Other performers included Jay Z and Timbaland, who performed together on stage. Joining Jay-Z on vacation was wifey Beyonce.

Guests at the star-studded event include James Bond star Daniel Craig, who was with his fiancée Satsuki Mitchell, and actor Eddie Murphy.

A source said: "They all had a great time."

Seems like anyone whose anyone was in St. Barts for New Years Eve. Lily Allen was also spotted at the luxurious vacation spot with her new (and much older) millionaire boyfriend Jay Jopling. Ah the life of a celebrity!

Saif was not in St Barts during the stated time. The fee for the performance came from an unconnected source.
