M.I.A. is to put her $50,000 fee for performing at last weekend's MTV Movie Awards towards the construction of schools in Africa.
She told onlookers at the ceremony: "They're giving me $100,000. Not bad, eh? I'm going to use it to build schools in Liberia. It costs $52,000 to build a school for 1,000."
So did she get paid 50k, or double that? Does it matter when it's going to a good cause? No, no it doesn't.
