Pop star Natasha Bedingfield is being paid a staggering $1 million (GBP550,000) to perform at exclusive New York karaoke club Spotlight this weekend (7-8APR07). The British star - who has become a huge hit in the US - will follow in the footsteps of Jennifer Lopez, who helped open the club last weekend (31APR07). Bedingfield will perform just three songs, earning an astonishing $33,000 (GBP16,700) per minute, reports British newspaper the Daily Star. The 25-year-old says, "I can't wait to get on the plane. "America is becoming like a second home to me now and I'm truly flattered that I've been asked to follow in Jennifer's footsteps at Spotlight. "I absolutely adore karaoke so being asked to perform was a no-brainer for me."
