Material Wealth

Madonna may be in the midst of planning a few upcoming concerts -- like her Roseland Ballroom show in NYC on April 30 and a pair of concerts in Dubai that are rumored to make her 12.5 million later on in the year -- but that doesn't mean she can't make time to hang out with her family. Here are a few pics from Madonna's dinner at San Lorenzo in London last night with her 3 children -- David Banda, Lourdes and Rocco. If she does end up closing the Dubai concert deal then she'll have much cause for celebration in the days to come:


The Queen of Pop is reportedly on the verge of signing the most profitable contract of her career. It is alleged as part of her next world tour, Madonna is in the midst of closing a deal to play two concerts in Dubai for a staggering £12.5million. According to The Sun, the main condition of the contract is that the last two shows are played in the Las Vegas-style Arab state in November. The tabloid has also reported that for a bit of pocket change in comparison, the popstar will also be playing a private gig for an extra £5million. A source close to the singer said: "Madonna is about to break another record by playing the most lucrative concert of her whole career – or anyone's career for that matter. "The negotiations for the tour to stop in Dubai in November are being finalized and she will get £7.5million for the one show only. The figure is so big because of her new contract with Live Nation and the huge funds available from private promoters in Dubai." It was added: "She is also close to agreeing to play at a private party in Dubai, the first in her career."

It's astounding the amount of money the Material Girl can still command. Not only will she be making gads of money from her new contract with Live Nation but she is also in a position to secure deals like this Dubai thing whenever she likes. It's good to be Madonna ... but it's also good to be Madonna's child. She does all the hard work and they reap the benefits ... not a bad life's "work". [Source]
