Four years ago, Beyonce was offered $6 million to perform for a corporate Uber event in Vegas.

Instead of cash, she asked for payments in equity. Beyonce was given stocks in Uber. And now her $6 million has turned into $300 million when Uber went public on the New York stock exchange last Friday, giving the company $8 billion total. 

Last year when Beyonce performed at Coachella, she was paid $8 million but paid $4 million for her rights to the show and sold that to Netflix in a $60 million deal.

She really is the Queen! Knowing how to double and triple her money perfectly.
