Lady Gaga is playing the Fontainebleau in Miami on New Year's Eve, and has sold over $1 million in tickets:
"The 'Poker Face' singer is said to be getting about 300,000 dollars for the show. Based on sales through Web site NewYearsEve.com, tickets for the singer's performance to ring in 2010 are almost non-existent, with only a few 25,000-dollar tables left and some general admission seats at 425 dollars."
These types of events are for the sick f'ing rich, this is just fucking sickening big time...
“It is, perhaps, ironic in an age when, across the country, police cameras capture and ticket red-light-runners, and many traffic stops are videotaped from the dashboard of a squad car. “Well, all of a sudden when the shoe is on the other foot, it’s, ‘Wait, wait, there’s an intrusion of the wiretap act,’” says Paul Hetznecker, a Philadelphia civil rights lawyer.
