Ariana Grande is making BANK by headlining Coachella this year. According to NME, Ari is raking in somewhere around $8 Million. And that’s far more than what Coachella usually shells out…

Last year Beyonce probably only made about $3 Million. (Yeah, I said “only.”) Money says festivals usually pay headliners something up to $4 Million, so Ariana’s team is probably very good at negotiating or Coachella recognizes her as an actual queeeeeeeen.

Let’s be real — it’s probably both.
