Justin Bieber grabs lunch on South African vacation
Justin Bieber looked a little surprised to be photographed while he was vacationing in South Africa this week.

The 16-year-old teen idol was spotted enjoying lunch at a restaurant in Cape Town. While Baby Biebs is taking a well-deserved vacation, he tells fans that he is already itching to get back to work. "I miss performing," Justin tweeted earlier today, proving that he isn't your average lazy teen.



Justin Bieber is Rich Rich Rich

The true measure of any artist is the fee they command for a show, and on that scale the 5ft 5-inch Justin Bieber is close to a giant.

Records obtained by the Smoking Gun prove the 16-year old Canadian crooner earns a minimum of $300,000 a show, placing him sixth in the list of top earners behind country stars Sugarland, Brooks & Dunn, Rascal Flats and Keith Urban, and the glam-rock band Kiss.

But Justin still earns far more per gig than stars who have been singing for years – Sheryl Crow earns roughly half Justin’s fee, and Bret Michaels and ‘American Idol’s Jordin Sparks earn less than a quarter.

He also earns twice as much for each show as Drake [who was a surprise guest at his August 12 gig,] and three times as much as Disney star Selena Gomez.

His company. ‘Bieber Time Touring, LLC’ can collect as much as $380,000 for a single performance. And to make the deal even sweeter the entire cost of the lights, sound gear and staging has to be met by each venue.

Justin’s agency, the entertainment goliath ‘Creative Artists Agency,’ also makes the venues pay for any opening act. They must also give him ‘100% headline billing’ and guarantee that he will close all his shows – with no follow-on act.

So let’s do the math — Justin’s current ‘My World’ tour ends on December 23 after 75 shows. At $300,000 per show that means he should earn $22.5-million. Enough to never need to go near a microphone ever again.
