Paul McCartney And Others Paid $1.57 For Olympic Opening Ceremony

Call it an act of charity or a goodwill gesture, but Paul McCartney and other star performers who took part in Friday's Olympics opening ceremony were paid a pound ($1.57) for their roles in the production.

According to Billboard, The nominal fee was offered to make the Olympics contracts binding - but is a lot lower than the millions that big names like McCartney command for a stadium gigs.

Other performers such as Mike Oldfield, Dizzee Rascal and Emeli Sande are suspected to been paid the same symbolic amount in order to ensure a binding agreement.

When the Olympics come calling, it’s cool to see entertainers are willing to put aside financial gain in order to represent their country.
