Rumour has it that UK “songtress”/rapper Estelle upset her Australian fans on New Years Eve, after her performance at Australia’s grand hotel Palazzo Versace’s “Unmasked” New Year’s Eve ball.
Sources have told website Str8 NYC that the West Londoner kept photographers waiting for 45 minutes and only sang four songs when she eventually appeared on stage at midnight.
Fans apparently forked out $600.00 to see Estelle perform four tracks, and she earned $100,000 for less than an hours work.
I doubt that the folks who were in attendance paid that amount just to see Estelle…..
I’m assuming that Estelle performed tracks from her last album Shine, and I only know three tracks from that album. One is the 2008 hit American Boy, the second is that slow reggae collaboration with Sean Paul (I can’t remember the name of the song), and the third, Wait A Minute (Just A Touch).
Perhaps the fourth track she performed was her 2004 hit 1980.
Anyway she was paid $100,000 for her services. Nice work if you can get it!
