Report: Ariana Grande Got Paid Twice As Much As Beyoncé For Coachella

Update: 12:42 pm ET (April 19, 2019) - There are conflicting reports regarding the earnings that Beyonce obtained for her Coachella performance. According to The Blast's sources, the singer received approximately the same amount as Ariana Grande.

This story is developing.

Original story below...

As fans continue to marvel at Beyonce's historical Coachella performance in the Netflix documentary, Homecoming, a new report about the pay discrepancy amongst the festival's headliners is also grabbing people's attention. According to Variety, Ariana Grande got paid double of what Bey earned for her performance.

Grande reportedly made $8 million from the festival, while Beyoncé only took home an estimated $3 to $4 million.

This certainly seems a little odd to fans due to a handful of reasons. For one, Beyoncé is a much more seasoned artist. Additionally, her headlining show, also known as BeyChella, was a historical moment that drew millions of viewers.

Grande also made history this year as the youngest artist to ever headline the three-day event, but the U.S. pay gap may have more to do with the huge difference between their paychecks. Black women make approximately 65 cents to every dollar earned by their white male counterparts. By contrast, white women earn 83 cents to every dollar earned by white men, according to the Pew Research Center.

Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa, And More Join Lil Dicky's Animated "Earth" Music Video

Lil Dicky enlisted a wide range of A-list celebrities for his animated video 'Earth,' which aims to celebrate our home just time for Earth Day (April 22).

Rappers Snoop Dogg, Lil Yachty, Tory Lanez and Wiz Khalifa as well as John Legend, Kevin Hart, Lil Jon, Miguel and Bad Bunny voice different wild animals in the seven-minute visual, which dropped on Friday (April 19). Other voices include Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, and Leonardo DiCaprio, among several others.

The track was originally supposed to be about animals, however Lil Dicky realized he wanted to use the track to raise awareness about climate change and environmentalism.

"As I started thinking about my song, I thought, 'It’s probably a good thing that all the profits that come from this song go to charities involved in saving the environment,'" he explained to Rolling Stone. "It was always in my head that this was going to be something that helped raise money for environmental issues, but I didn’t really know the facts. I looked into it and was blown away."

Dicky says that he was working on the song for about two-and-a-half years before it was released. It's quintessential Lil Dicky, but it's also informative.

Remy Ma Under Police Investigation Over Irving Plaza Attack

Remy Ma is reportedly under investigation in New York over her involvement in an alleged attack that took place backstage at Irving Plaza, TMZ reports.

Remy Ma was scheduled to perform at the event alongside Fat Joe. Things apparently took a wrong turn in the backstage area, however. Love & Hip Hop star Brittney Taylor claims Remy Ma punched her in the right eye Tuesday night (April 16) during the Pretty Lou Benefit Concert at the concert venue. She reportedly went to the hospital for treatment before filing a police report.

According to law enforcement, Brittney alleges and Rey "exchanged words" in the greenroom relating to an attack on Remy's stepdaughter, Dejanae, that occurred weeks ago. The State of the Culture host allegedly accused Taylor of knowing about the attack. That's when Remy allegedly threw the first punch.

Taylor shared a photo of her black eye on Instagram after the incident. "So, here am I on my way to a very important meeting and it’s hard to even focus because of what occurred last night," she said. " I didn’t wanna bring it to social media because It's pretty embarrassing and not a good look tbh. I tried my best to cover it up with makeup and move on but that still didn’t work. My Question is @remyma why did you really do this?"

Taylor and Rem have a history of beef on the VH1 reality show. Remy is currently on parole following a 2007 attempted murder charge. No arrests have been made, and no new charges have been filed.
