The ‘Diamonds’ singer will earn a £5 million check for appearing at the event and she is also scheduled to perform a short set for her fans.
This isn’t the Barbadian beauty’s first Westfield Christmas lighting — she was the featured guest at the Shepherd’s Bush location in 2010.
Rihanna has yet to sign on the dotted line, but if everything works out the star will earn a hefty paycheck, while appearing in front of an expected 20,000 people.
Myf Ryan, general manager for marketing at Westfield Stratford, added, “The Christmas light switch-on at Westfield Stratford City is one of the highlights of the festive calendar. This year we want to thank our loyal shoppers by giving them something they’ll never forget.”
A multi-million payday for a second's worth of work?
