Several news sources have reported that George Michael commands £1.6 million ($2.3 million USD) per hour and that he earned a total of £48,499,893 ($69,898,051.36 USD) between April 2006 and March 2008, not including income from record sales and songwriting royalties. Much of George’s income is said to come from private gigs such as his 13-song 2006 New Year’s Eve set at a party thrown by Russian nickel magnate Vladimir Potanin. For that gig, Michael, Kenny, and a 40-person entourage were flown on a private jet to Moscow. Then, a few months later, Michael earned another £1,521,916 ($2,193,385.51 USD) performing at the 55th birthday party of billionaire Sir Philip Green. The event was held on an island in the Indian Ocean and featured 100 celebrity guests, whom George entertained with “Careless Whisper” and “Freedom,” among other hits. Unfortunately, George was not invited to join the party afterwards and was requested to leave the island as soon as he finished performing...but, hey, who needs a party when you’ve got $69 million to console yourself with?

Well worth every penny. I wish I was loaded to have my personal gig!
