    As it turns out, it's not just Justin Bieber's world.

    South Korean rapper Psy's contagious hit, "Gangnam Style," just nabbed quite the impressive title from the Biebs' "Baby," becoming the most-watched YouTube video of all time.

    The music video has earned about 803,761,000 views since it was first posted to the site in July. Meanwhile, the music video for "Baby" racked up 803,732,000 since it was released in February 2010, according to Billboard.

    "#GangnamStyle just became the most watched video @YouTube!! #History," Psy tweeted Saturday.

    Psy catapulted to international stardom this summer with the release of the hit single and music video, most recently performing the dance with Madonna at her New York City concert, and with MC Hammer at the 2012 American Music Awards.

    Ironically, Psy became label mates with the Bieber in September, when he signed to Scooter Braun's Schoolboy Records.

    With the holidays quickly approaching, giving back is on all of our minds, which is why InStyle caught up with several stars for our “Shining Stars” story in the new December issue to see how they support the causes closest to their hearts. We’ve got behind the scenes video with two of the celebrities featured—Leighton Meester, who works with blood cancer-focused organization DKMS America (Vera Wang introduced her to their work!), and Colin Farrell about his work with the Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics (his son suffers from the illness). “It’s just so simple to help,” Meester said.

    X Factor 2012 hopeful Christopher Maloney has topped the votes for the past seven weeks, it’s been claimed.


    It’s been reported today that Chris has made X Factor history by staying top of the weekly results since the first live show.

    Despite the best attempts of the judges who have done nothing but slate his performances, Chris’ support hasn’t wavered.

    It could mean that tonight’s bottom two result will prove just as shocking as last week’s, with only five acts including Chris remaining.

    Only Chris and Jahmene have yet to avoid the bottom two this series, with the gap between the two apparently growing.

    It all means that Chris is the tip to win the show in next month’s Manchester final.

    An X Factor insider told the Daily Star Sunday today: “Traditionally it’s been said acts who do well early on lose momentum in later rounds but Chris shows no sign of that.

    “It’s not certain he’ll win but other acts must raise their game and get fans voting – and fast – if they want to upset him. It’s looking really good for him.”

    And Chris vowed to stand up to his haters, saying today: “I’ve been bullied in the past and I know what bullying is about.

    “Bullies have won too many times when I was younger.

    “People have said bad things over the years and I’ve given up. I gave up on my dream because of bullies.

    “But I’m not going to give up this time. I’ve wasted too many years. I’ll never quit because I’m a fighter.”

    Former boxing champ Hector 'Macho' Camacho died early Saturday in Puerto Rico.

    Camacho went into cardiac arrest and was then taken off life support and died shortly thereafter, Dr. Ernesto Torres, the director of the Centro Medico trauma center in San Juan, told the AP.

    He won super lightweight, lightweight and junior welterweight world titles in the 1980s for a stunning career record of 79-6-3. He knocked out Sugar Ray Leonard in 1997, ending the former champ's final comeback attempt.

    Camacho was shot in the face on Tuesday while sitting in a car with a friend. Cocaine was later found in the friend's pockets.

    Camacho was declared brain dead on Thursday, but his family was still divided over whether to remove life support. His cardiac arrest early this morning made that decision for them.

    Camacho's sisters have said they would like to fly his body back to New York, where he grew up, and bury him there. The fighter was raised mostly in Harlem, earning the nickname the 'Harlem Heckler.'

    "A letter to a friend...This subject is old but I have never answered it in its entirety. And even with this post it will remain incomplete.

    The question why I would LET Willow cut her hair. First the LET must be challenged. This is a world where women,girls are constantly reminded that they don't belong to themselves; that their bodies are not their own, nor their power or self determination. I made a promise to endow my little girl with the power to always know that her body, spirit and her mind are HER domain. Willow cut her hair because her beauty, her value, her worth is not measured by the length of her hair. It's also a statement that claims that even little girls have the RIGHT to own themselves and should not be a slave to even their mother's deepest insecurities, hopes and desires. Even little girls should not be a slave to the preconceived ideas of what a culture believes a little girl should be. More to come. Another day.

    J "

    Jada Pinkett Smith and her children Jaden(14) and Willow(12) jetted out of Los Angeles yesterday in the hopes of spending the Thanksgiving holiday catching some rays in Hawaii.

    But while the first day of the group's vacation was overcast, they were able to catch some waves.Mum Jada, who took the trip without husband Will Smith, chose to stay on dry land however, keeping bundled up in a gray sweater and leggings.

    New Dragon Ball Z Movie Title Chosen

    Nov 20, 2012 by Master Blaster

    Our collective rears were tickled with the teaser trailer for a new Dragon Ball Z movie penned by its original creator, Akira Toriyama this past summer, and now a new glimpse of the new movie has arrived – the official title. Along with the announcement comes a once in a life time offer!

    Toriyama had previously stated that “this movie will have the original atmosphere and a little bit of modern flavor” and this newest title change seems to reflect that.

    Until now the working title of this theatrical release was Dragon Ball Z: Dragon Fist Explosion!! If Not Goku, Who Will Do It which was sensibly shortened considerably to Dragon Ball Z: Wrath of the Dragon for English markets.

    Although the original Japanese title reflects the wild and fun intensity that made the original series famous Toriyama seems to have toned it down to a more mature Dragon Ball Z: Kami to Kami which was localized to Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods.

    In other Dragon Ball news, limited edition tickets will go on sale for the Battle of Gods release on 30 March and the upcoming release of One Piece Film Z on 15 December. There are 8989 tickets in total and they feature artwork from Akira Toriyama and Eiichiro Oda for their own movies. Here is a list of theaters selling (Japanese only), but they probably won’t last long.

    The Juice' Innocent? New theory surfaces in Simpson-Goldman slayings

    The head of the network offering a new theory about who killed Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman still believes that O.J. did it.

    That may be the most damning thing we can say about “My Brother the Serial Killer,” which airs Wednesday on Investigation Discovery. It suggests that Glen Rogers, a part-time painter, killed Simpson’s ex-wife and her friend while trying to retrieve a pair of diamond earrings at the NFL star’s behest.

    “You may have to kill the bitch,” Simpson told Rogers, according to a profiler quoted on the show.

    That’s double hearsay - an alleged quote of an alleged quote - and would likely be considered too unreliable to be admitted in a courtroom. But that sort of so-called evidence abounds in “My Brother the Serial Killer.”

    The ID Films documentary offers an occasionally intriguing new take on one of our most famous unsolved mysteries. But by failing to acknowledge and address the weaknesses in its supposed evidence, it comes up as short as that glove did on Simpson’s hand.

    The documentary already has sparked fury from Goldman’s relatives for suggesting that Simpson wasn’t the real killer. The football star, now serving time for robbery, was acquitted of the murders but found liable for the deaths in a civil trial and ordered to pay millions of dollars.

    ID President Henry Schleiff defends “My Brother the Serial Killer” by saying it isn’t out to prove that Rogers committed the killings. Rather, the idea is to give viewers new facts and let them make up their own minds.

    Personally, Schleiff told TheWrap, he still thinks Simpson is probably guilty.

    “I think that he is still the most likely or beyond the most likely suspect,” Schleiff said. “But I don’t know with all certainty. I don’t think you can completely rule this guy out... He has one horrible skill, and that is his ability to kill people.”

    Schleiff said the documentary doesn’t point out inaccuracies or inconsistencies in the evidence against Rogers because ID viewers are savvy enough to root them out on their own.

    “We have a really smart audience, and I don’t think they need to be told what the warnings are or all the caveats,” he said.

    Rogers, convicted of one murder in Florida and another in California, is awaiting execution in the Sunshine State. Though the show focuses on his brother and sister coming to the realization that Rogers was a multiple murderer, the possible Simpson connection “was frankly a key part of the interest in the documentary,” Schleiff said.

    Much of the information linking Rogers to the killings comes from his brother, Clay, who narrates the film. He has the type of background that would invite jurors’ skepticism: He has admitted to robbing people with his brother decades ago, served jail time and says during the documentary that he and his brother once chanted to raise demons.

    He describes the feeling of one clawing him from the inside out.

    But perhaps his biggest problem is his trouble with specifics, including about how his brother supposedly knew Nicole Brown Simpson. Glen Rogers was working as a painter in Los Angeles in the months before the murders, and the documentary surmises, without evidence, that he might have done work on her home.

    According to Clay Rogers, his brother reported “partying” with O.J.’s ex, and he planned on “takin’ her down” because she was well-off financially.

    “Glen told me that he had set up Faye Redmond and Nicole Simpson, and they met him at a Van Nuys nightclub,” he says on camera. “He set ’em up to rob ’em. Whether or not he was gonna kill ’em or not I don’t know. He expected just the two girls to be there. But I guess that Ron Goldman showed up.”

    That statement may set off alarms for people who followed the 1994 criminal trial. First, Clay Rogers is thinking of Faye Resnick - not Redmond. She was the admitted drug abuser who was living with Brown Simpson when the latter was killed. Simpson’s lead attorney, Johnny Cochran, suggested during the trial that Brown Simpson and Goldman may have been murdered by drug dealers trying to collect a debt from Resnick.

    It’s unclear from Clay Rogers’ statement what happened to his brothers’ alleged plan to rob Resnick and Brown Simpson at a nightclub, or why Goldman supposedly appeared as well.

    Whatever the case, he doesn’t seem to be describing the night of the killings: As exhaustively explained during the trial, Goldman was a waiter and friend of Brown Simpson’s who was murdered outside her home as he visited her to return a pair of eyeglasses left at his restaurant.

    The documentary addresses none of these points of confusion. But Schleiff acknowledged Clay Rogers might not be a completely reliable narrator.

    “I don’t think the memory or being able to identify, years later, specific names or dates, happens to be the strength of anybody, particularly these guys,” he said of the Rogers siblings. Still, he believes, they have no motive to lie.

    The Goldman family begs to disagree. An attorney for Ron’s father, Fred Goldman, noted that most high-profile slayings yield false confessions from people seeking the spotlight.

    “You can pack the Los Angeles Coliseum with 100,000 Glen Rogerses all confessing to the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman, and nothing would change the fact that O.J. Simpson murdered these two people in cold blood,” said the attorney, David J. Cook.

    But Clay Rogers’ believability isn’t the biggest obstacle to the documentary’s. The film repeatedly airs claims from Glen Rogers’ siblings that he confessed to more than 70 killings.

    It fails to note, however, that he recanted those statements in 1995, which might call into question his other supposed admissions as well.

    They include those he allegedly made to Anthony Meoli, a criminal profiler who exchanged letters with Glen Rogers and met with him. Meoli said that Rogers told him from death row that he had killed Brown Simpson and Goldman while trying to retrieve the $20,000 earrings because Simpson wanted them back after giving them to his ex-wife.

    Rogers also showed him a painting, Meoli said, of headstones with the names “Ron” and “Nicole” and drew the supposed murder weapon.

    Meoli said Rogers also described how he carried out the killings in brutal detail and mailed his mother an angel pin he said he had stolen from Brown Simpson, who collected angel memorabilia.

    Simpson went to the crime scene after the killings to check out Rogers’ work, Meoli said. As a result, his shoeprints were found there, along with something that may have been another shoeprint. That possible shoeprint belonged to Rogers, the documentary suggests.

    The documentary doesn’t explain how Rogers allegedly knew O.J. Simpson or why Simpson would trust him enough to involve him.

    The filmmakers didn’t interview Rogers - understandable since he is on death row. But his pending execution gives him an obvious motive to try to delay it by any means possible, perhaps by confessing to crimes he didn’t commit. The documentary fails to raise this possibility.

    Few know the details of the case better than the Goldman family, who say they weren’t told about the documentary until this week. They took issue with the decision to air it Wednesday.

    “This is another attempt to capitalize on the most famous crime in our history, during what is an otherwise slow news week,” said Goldman’s sister, Kim.

    The reason for the slow news week is Thanksgiving, a day the victims’ families will now be forced to spend thinking about the murders.

  • 11/24/12--22:11: X-FILES MEGAPOST

    Image and video hosting by TinyPic

    All right, we haven’t had a Rumor Mill update in a very long while, so now that we’re up and running on the newly-redesigned Bits, it feels like it’s time to get the Mill going again, yes? And with a nice Cold War-era, espionage-inspired logo to boot!

    So here’s today’s dispatch: A number of our industry sources are now telling us that Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment is planning (and in fact may already be gearing up to) release their classic TV series The X-Files on Blu-ray. As fans will already be aware, the first four seasons of the show were produced in 4x3 format, like many TV programs of its era. The series then went to a 16x9 widescreen format for the remainder of its run, as anamorphic widescreen displays were starting to become common. The entire show was still broadcast in standard definition – not actual high-definition – and the visual effects and post-production were finished in SD. (Note that the first actual HD broadcast on Fox was for the 2004 NFL season, while X-Files ended its run in 2002.) Our sources say Fox has likely decided to “rebuild” the seasons in high-definition, in much the same way that CBS has done with Star Trek: The Original Series and Star Trek: The Next Generation. Provided all the original camera negative has been properly stored and archived, it’ll presumably be an easier task as the show featured fewer and less elaborate visual effects.

    This wouldn’t be the first time Fox has upgraded a show to Blu-ray: They did something roughly similar with Firefly on Blu-ray back in 2008, although to be fair all of the show’s visual effects were upconverted to HD rather than re-rendered in actual high-definition to save costs.

    If all goes well, we’re told the first seasons of The X-Files could appear on BD sometime in late 2013. We’ll post additional updates as they come in. Stay tuned…

    EXCLUSIVE: Inside Playboy's special edition showing Marilyn Monroe's nude photos on 50th anniversary of her death


    'This is the first time we've shown the totality of our collection, from the beginning to almost days before the end of her life. it showcases the arc of her life.'
    Fifty years after her death, the world is still entranced by Miss Monroe. Playboy’s special package includes the features The Nude Marilyn, a carefully selected portfolio of photographs.

    Playboy had a long relationship with Ms Monroe. The very first issue of Playboy featured Ms Monroe as the cover girl.
    That famous photograph by Tom Kelley, with Monroe on red velvet cloth, was purchased by Hefner, and says Ebert, it would not be going too far to say it was the making of Hef’s new magazine.
    'It legitimized nudity by embodying it in arguably the most famous woman in America,' Mr Ebert writes

    Playboy promises the December cover feature 'highlights the full spectrum of her beauty and power'. The classic nude photos range from her first days as a pin-up girl to her final pictorials with the world’s leading photographers.


    One of the photos by Lawrence Schiller is the last nude photo ever taken of Ms Monroe, taken just two days before her death.
    Many of the photos were taken on the fly. Some of her were taken on movie sets, and some in bed at her home or by her pool.
    'Some were taken at midnight in Beverly Hills with only a headlight used for lighting,' said Mr Jellinek. 'It all depended on her mood.
    She was really two people - Marilyn Monroe, the glamorous actress, and Norma Jean, the fragile, damaged little girl.

    With “The Walking Dead” nearing the halfway mark of its third season — the hit AMC series has just one episode left before a weeks-long break that will carry through to February — the action on the zombie show is clearly intensifying. (Caution, spoilers ahead.)

    Michonne and Andrea have parted ways, Lori and T-Dog have departed for the hereafter and Glenn and Maggie appear to be in grave peril, while the Governor is slowly displaying his true, deeply devious and calculating ways — if not to the residents of Woodbury than at least to the record-breaking numbers of “Walking Dead” viewers.

    The experience of working on the show’s Georgia set is just as intense for the actors as the characters they portray, according to Danai Gurira, whose Michonne last week found herself arriving at the prison stronghold where Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and the other survivors have made camp.

    The Iowa born, Zimbabwe-raised actress and playwright isn’t trying to suggest that the cast is actually fighting off zombies, of course; rather, Gurira likened the environment on set to the world of theater, where the performers are entirely invested in living through their fictional counterparts to give the scenes, and the show overall, a palpable, dramatic vitality.

    “There’s something about this show where the actors have such a beautiful ownership of what goes into the camera frame,” Gurira said during a recent interview. “People want everyone to do excellently and they let you know when you have. There’s such encouragement of fellow excellence. It’s so collaborative. It’s something that the lead of the show, Andy Lincoln, really brings to light. There’s something so pure about him; there’s no ego, it’s all about the work. He sets a beautiful example that way; he’s kind, encouraging, congratulatory, really happy for great stuff to happen. He’s a true actor.”

    Gurira’s Michonne and Lincoln’s Rick certainly have some things in common, a fierce determination to stay alive chief among those traits:“I think everyone is living in the aftermath of PTSD and is kind of still in a PTSD realm,” Gurira said.“The world is gone, your family’s gone, you’ve seen things you could not ever fathom. [In Michonne's case] she became very specifically who she became as a result of that — as everyone did — but her response was extraordinary. She re-created herself extraordinarily. She just decided she wasn’t going down, she was actually going to really figure out how to take care of herself in this world, not just get by, not rely on anybody else.”

    “The way she’s wired has its pluses because it’s so brilliant for the world,” she continued. “It really makes her formidable. However, there’s some damage that’s done that she hasn’t dealt with.”

    She smiled and paused before adding, “It’s not like you can get some therapy, some counseling to work through it.”

    Hey, remember the cinematic gem "From Justin to Kelly"? We're guessing Kelly Clarkson wishes she didn't! Like Kelly, plenty of stars have had some career "turkeys" -- and we don't mean the delicious, Thanksgiving kind! In the gallery below, we shine a light on the pop diva who should've never tried acting, the folk artist who thought she was a poet, one of the worst AOL Sessions ever and much, more more.

    Kelly Clarkson in 'From Justin to Kelly'

    "American Idol"s original winner and runner up starred in this ill-conceived flick that both IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes gave one star. Ouch! Of her movie debut, Kelly told Time: "I knew when I read the script it was going to be real, real bad, but when I won, I signed that piece of paper and I could not get out of it. Two words: contractually obligated."

    Britney Spears' Restaurant Nyla

    Named for BritBrit's two "favorite places" -- New York and Louisiana -- the pop star's foray into the restaurant biz lasted about six months! With debt piling up, the restaurant tried to overhaul its menu in a last-ditch effort to keep the place open. But it was just too late to save the problem-plagued eatery. At the time of it's closing, Spears even released a statement to the New York Times claiming she had no involvement in the restaurant's day-to-day operations.

    Jewel's Book of Poetry

    Not too many copies of this book are still up for sale, and perhaps with good reason. After its release, poet Kim Carlin told the Baltimore Sun that the collection of prose was like "the journal ramblings of a 14-year-old girl who needs therapy." However, many of Jewels fans did jump to her defense and flooded sites like with positive reviews. Silver lining?

    And, for your viewing pleasure, a sample from her poetry book.


    While leaving the airport,
    a gypsy woman stole my luggage.
    She wore a rice paper mask over her eyes.
    A mole showed neatly on her chin, hairless.
    She laughed while sausages
    fell from her pockets in heavy shivers.
    I hope she misses them sorely.

    Mariah Carey in 'Glitter'

    Mariah Carey's 2001 flick is another member of the IMDB "one-star review" club. But if you ask Mariah, it wasn't the quality of the movie that made it a flop. "That movie was released on September 11th, 2001 -- could there be a worse day for that movie to come out? I don't think so," Mimi said after the fact. "I don't even know that many people who even saw the movie so I don’t think it's the worst thing ever done."

    Lindsay Lohan's Singing Career

    Christina Aguilera's 'Bionic' Album

    Expectations were high for Christina's 2010 album. Unfortunately, the collection of songs was widely panned by critics AND fans. But don't tell Xtina is was a flop! "I can proudly say [Bionic] was ahead of its time, to be honest. It wasn’t so commercialized. You had to really be a music lover, be a true fan of music and the love of being open to really appreciate that record. It's just a special piece in my body of work that will forever live on. The older the record gets the more people will come to appreciate it actually and check it out."

    Kelly Osbourne's Madonna Remake

    Kelly Osbourne is hilarious as the co-host of E!'s "Fashion Police" -- but one of her first attempts at a singing career is slightly cringe-worthy. However, Kel's less-than-stellar remake of the Madonna classic might have actually helped her career. Years after being released, Madge made Kelly the spokesperson for her Material Girl clothing line!

    Following a dramatic e-fight with Jenny Johnson, Chris has deactivated his account.

    After getting into a rather intense Twitter battle earlier tonight, Chris Brown has deleted his account. One of the last tweets the singer sent out before deleting his page was "Just ask Rihanna if she mad??????"

    Earlier today Chris Brown posted a series of vulgar tweets attacking comedienne Jenny Johnson (@JennyJohnsonHi5), a long-time critic who dared to mock the girl-beater celebrity.

    Chris Brown is really bad at public relations. The 23-year-old rapper went on a memorably vulgar tirade and apparently realized soon thereafter that it was a bad idea, because he scrambled to cover his tracks. But deleting tweets does not erase their previous existence and deactivating your Twitter account does not take away all of the bad things you did with it.

    Then things got ugly. In a series of tweets, Brown told Johnson to suck his dick, threatened to fart on her, threatened to shit and called her a "bitch" and a "ho" about seven times. After tweeting -- and this is a direct quote -- "mom says hello... She told me not to shart in ur mouth, wanted me to shit right on the retina, ....#pinkeye" Brown tweeted, "Just ask Rihanna if she mad??????"

    Even celebrities who are past their prime charge a ton of money. Speaking engagements, private performances or simple appearances can bring in hundreds of thousands of dollars.

    Celebrity Talent International is an agency that represents huge stars like Adele, Elton John and Angelina Jolie, booking appearances for these stars and hundreds more. Many of the appearance fees are listed on CTI's website and are shockingly high. Celebrities don't necessarily receive the full amount, but the fees are guidelines for what they expect.

    Decades after 90210 made her famous, Shannen Doherty is still asking for a ton of money. Same for former musician/reality stars like Clay Aiken and Bret Michaels. And you won't believe what the former Mr. Britney Spears charges.

    1. Shannen Doherty charges more than $100,000 per appearance.
    Doherty's peak was about 20 years ago when she starred as mean girl Brenda on "Beverly Hills 90210." She's had a few gigs since, but nothing notable in the past couple years.

    2. Roseanne Barr still demands $100,000 per appearance.
    Roseanne is famous for her sitcom that ran from 1988 through 1997. Since then, her career has dried up. Her Lifetime reality show "Roseanne's Nuts" was cancelled after one season.

    3. Clay Aiken charges between $100,000 and $150,000 per speaking gig.
    Aiken was the runner-up on "American Idol" in 2003. Since then, he's had a few songs on the radio. But he still has a lucrative speaking career.

    4. Creed charges a minimum of $150,000 per appearance.
    The band, which sings "Take Me Higher" and "Arms Wide Open," hasn't had a big hit since the early 2000's. Still, it charges a hefty fee.

    5. Moby charges more than $150,000.
    Moby is credited with popularizing dance music in the 1990's. But it's been years since he's had a hit on the mainstream charts.

    6. Toni Braxton charges between $150,000 and $250,000.
    The Grammy-winning "Unbreak My Heart" singer must be hard-up for gigs--she recently filed for bankruptcy.

    7. Bret Michaels charges somewhere between $150,000 and $250,000.
    Michael's peak days as the lead singer of Poison are long behind him. But Michaels found a new generation of fans through the reality series "The Rock Of Love" on VH1.

    8. Orlando Bloom's booking fee starts at around $200,000.
    Orlando Bloom found fame 10 years ago when he starred in "Lord Of The Rings" and "Pirates Of The Caribbean." However, he hasn't been in a hit movie in years. Perhaps his role in the upcoming movie "The Hobbit" will give his career a boost.

    9. The All-American Rejects charge a minimum of around $200,000.
    The All-American Rejects won the hearts of teenage girls everywhere with their eponymous and "Move Along" albums. The band hasn't been on the charts in quite some time, but it still costs a lot to book them.

    10. Avril Lavigne charges about $250,000.
    Lavigne's "Let Go" album was a smash hit back in 2003, while her subsequent albums flopped. Today, Lavigne is working on a comeback record.

    11. Duran Duran charges more than $250,000 per appearance.
    Duran Duran continues to ride off its success in the 1980's, when it was one of the leading bands in the world. Longtime fans are loyal to the group, and they are priced accordingly.

    12. Evanescence still charges a minimum of more than $250,000 per performance.
    The band is best-known for lead singer Amy Lee, who had a couple of hits in the early 2000's. The goth-metal band still charges a ton of money for a performance, though.

    13. Ben Harper still garners around $300,000 per appearance.
    Harper's been around the music industry for more than 20 years, but hasn't had a hit in years. He's lent his voice to activism instead of singing, but his appearance fee doesn't reflect that.

    14. Keanu Reeves is listed in the range of $250,000 to $350,000 per appearance.
