    Singer Beyonce Knowles earns a massive $4.7 million with cosmetics giant L'Oreal - for only ten days of work a year.

    The "Baby Boy" singer, 22, is required to be featured in photo shoots, promotional gigs and personal appearances for the firm's advertising campaign - and she must inform them of "any radical changes to her hair any concert tour may necessitate."

    The terms of the contract also include maintaining her locks "in excellent condition," permission for L'Oreal to inspect Knowles' hair as long as she gets two weeks notice and she must keep "approximately the same physical appearance and health."

    Knowles signed with L'Oreal in February 2001 in a two-year deal which included three separate option years.

  6. If they are paying her $4.7m a year, she must be pulling in some huge sales for the company.

    ...because she's worth it :bag:

    You're lying.

    Anyway, I hadn't realized she was so young. I assumed she was older (30?) because she seems to have been doing the music biz thing for a while...how old would she have been when Destiny's Child made their debut?

    There's no room left. They tore down where the jokes used to live and built a wal mart, some low income housing, and two 3.5 million dollar homes.
     
  16. So, then where did the smell go?

    Rock on

    I like how she's groping herself here. If I was her I'd do that all the time too.
