Beyonce Knowles has been named the highest earning entertainer by the minute in the world.
The 'Love on Top' singer topped a poll by social media website saucytime.com by earning ÃÂ£1.25 million for a five-song performance at a private New Year's Eve 2010 party on the island of St. Barts, equating to ÃÂ£71,040 for each minute she was on the stage.
In second place was Mariah Carey, who earned ÃÂ£630,000 - or ÃÂ£44,400 per minute - for a four-song set at a similar party held the previous year on the same Caribbean island.
Third highest earner per minute was Kylie Minogue, who commanded ÃÂ£33,000 every sixty seconds Ã¢â¬â or ÃÂ£2 million for her whole hour set Ã¢â¬âwhen she sung at the launch party of the Atlantis Hotel in Dubai, November 2008.
Next was Jennifer Lopez, who received the equivalent of ÃÂ£25,000 a minute from Russian tycoon Andrei Meinichenko to appear at his wife's birthday party in 2007.
Jennifer narrowly beat The Rolling Stones who rounded out the top five by making ÃÂ£2.2 million in 2002 from an hour and a half set for Texan billionaire David Bonderman's 60th birthday, the equivalent of ÃÂ£24,242 per minute.
