Nick Cannon has a few jobs…Host of America’s Got Talent and a radio show but itÂ seemsÂ as though he doe not want to pay for his own 30th birthday bash! He has allegedly sentÂ outÂ memos for corporateÂ sponsorsÂ for his party that would include “tweets” from him, photo opps and some mentions in press releases…this seems a little odd!
According to Page Six,
Nick Cannon is looking to make a killing on his 30th birthday — reps for Mariah Carey’s husband have sent out a mass e-mail looking for corporate sponsors to pay $25,000 for three tweets from next month’s bicoastal bash.
Announcing that “confirmed” guests will include Mariah as host, Jay-Z, BeyoncÃ©, Will and Jada Smith, Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore, Kobe Bryant, Quincy Jones, L.A. Reid and Jamie Foxx, Cannon is searching for sponsors for a New York party Oct. 8 and an LA bash at Universal Studios Oct. 9.
In an e-mail sent wide, reps for the NBC “America’s Got Talent” host say: “This is an extremely exciting opportunity to sponsor a fun and lavish event . . . opportunities range from gift bags and signage to tweets and photo ops.”
A one-sheet flier for the “Nick Cannon Birthday celebration hosted by Mariah Carey” offers sponsors the chance to pay $2,500 to be in the gift bag, while a $15,000 donation includes “one tweet” and “mention in all p.r. materials.”
For $25,000 you can be a “host sponsor” which includes “three tweets,” a “right to service out photos” and a “logo on all collateral,” which we hope doesn’t refer to the “confirmed” celebrity guests.
And those prices only refer to a single city, with special “packages” that can be created for both New York and LA.
Cannon, who married Carey in 2008, really doesn’t need the cash. He’s in his second year of hosting the NBC talent show, while Mariah’s wealth was estimated at $400 million this year.
But the pair are well known for throwing lavish birthday bashes. For Mariah’s 39th last year, he whisked her off to Barbados for a party that was covered in People magazine. For her 40th this year, Cannon bought his wife a pink Porsche, for which she thanked him on Twitter. Their wedding party was celebrated at Six Flags
A rep for Cannon didn’t get back to us.
I think Mariah can afford to throw Nick a hot party!
