You have to remember as a person of middle or even upper middle class status that for millionaires and billionaires that $3,000,000 spent on a performance wouldn't even be felt by them the next day. Someone with a billion like Oprah or this Russian guy's wife can spend $3,000,000 because that's like 1% of their income. The average American makes $40,000 and some of us spend $2-3 thousand for entertainment for galas, so no, spending that money for someone of J'Lo's status is not shocking in the slightest. If I was a billionaire, I'd probably spend $3,000,000 on a shopping spree. Take care, senses.

wow, transformed, you cerainly know how to become an extravagant rich. yes, i can see that the amount is so small for these rich businessmen. this makes me feel bad all the more, at how they do everything to squeeze out from the ordinary citizens, just so as to have more income each day of their lives. well, we had been made to understand already, as to how it is, with the capitalists and investors.

no, i will never consider doing something like it. i may have so much money which i can spare but i will not be wasting it on something like that which has no good purpose in itself. if my wife will desire something like that for her birthday, i will look for an organizer months before, so jlo can perform in my country in a concert where my investment can at least be returned to me in terms of the earnings from it.

No I wouldn't spend that much, it's a ridiculous amount of money. Maybe $100000 or so but not much more.
