Floyd Mayweather Jr. dropped $50,000 in Las Vegas last weekend to get Nicki Minaj to hang out at his daughter Iyanna’s 14th birthday bash. $50K just to take selfies, show face and maybe do a song on to is one hell of  day. It’s only natural to idolize superstar rappers because the cool points you get when you say “Jay Z was at my birthday party, no big deal,” is immeasurable. Nicki isn’t the first or the last to make a guest appearance at a birthday party for someone rich and “famous.” Here are 12 others who collected a nice check for an appearance.
