Rihanna Paid $100K to Sit Front Row at Fashion Week
Imagine being paid hundreds of thousands just to sit and be a spectator?! Well, that’s part of the charmed life of Rihanna, who will be raking in some serious cash just by showing up to Fashion Week!

The singer will reportedly make $100,000 for each show that she sit front row at during next week’s Fashion Week in New York. And according to Fashionista.com, Rihanna is the highest-paid “seat filler” out there right now. Beyonce is right up there, making anywhere between $80K-$100K per front-row appearance.

Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen are still considered big players, raking in $80,000 each as well. But it seems that these numbers depend on your popularity at a specific time. Case in point— Lindsay Lohan apparently used to be paid $60,000 to sit front row. But now, even though she’s a so-called fashion advisor for Ungaro, she isn’t paid squat to show up to shows anymore.
