Xtina -- $cary HUGE Payday for Halloween Concert

11/2/2010 3:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Christina Aguilera had to work this Halloween weekend -- performing a one hour show at a private party for a really rich guy -- but TMZ has learned the singer raked in roughly $1,000,000 for the gig.

The guy behind the party is mega-loaded investment guru Charles Brandes -- who throws an annual super expensive Halloween bash at his San Diego estate.

We're told Brandes locked in Aguilera to perform this past Saturday night between 7:30 and 8:30 pm -- at a rate of $16,666 per minute ... plus hair, makeup, travel and other related costs.

Sources connected to the event insist Brandes didn't pay Christina a dime over $500,000 -- but several well-connected sources close to Aguilera are standing firm on the million dollar mark.

Either way ... SICK PAY for 60 minutes of "work."

I remember seeing Christina in concert back in 2003, 2004. She had the greatest little body. That is now gone. She since then largely has dropped out of site with the exception of a few burlesque type numbers and largely ignored albums. She laughed at Britney, and now look at her. What good is a Beverly Hills pad and all kinds of cash, when you now have to worry about coordinating your kid's parental visits with your ex, along with separate holidays, etc.? And its not like she looks like she did back in 2003 or 2004, either. She has gained weight, and probably is not given the kind of looks in clubs from guys like before, except the ones who remain starstruck by her. And of course, when there is a suspicion that you are lesbo, it never goes down with parents and teenagers, who always can use that against you. That translates into decreased album sales. With the fading looks already, and decreased album/concert sales, I would say she will go the way of a Debbie Gibson or Tiffany, or other like female flash artist. Had she played her cards right, she could have built up her rep and easily beat the Lady Gagas and Katy Perrys of the world. We will forget about her in about 5yrs (only 60 months from now) altogether, with the exception of some music oldies trivia game. Lata babe, you're done

Apparently this guy also has a major hand in the Clear Channel cookie jar, and may just be the cookie jar itself.

"Lucy130" you are an idiot. My husband works for Mr. Brandes and he could not be any nicer, unassuming, and generous. While businesses are folding left and right and employees are being laid off as the big executives take bigger paychecks, Brandes has not laid off a single person. Not one. Unlike most megamillionaires he does actually care about his employees and has taken very good care of his staff and by extension, their families. You don't know what you're talking about you fool. Suck it Lucky130.

Moron:"He also owns the majority of the clubs here, and has wild sex orgies, or at least thats what the neighbors say. 16,666 per minute huh? by Lucky 130"

X-tina is in denial. She no longer has the body for that outfit. She can sing but those legs look like sausages.

And the sad thing was that she was completely wasted - the crowd was largely reupholstered septuagenarians from the La Jolla social set who would probably have preferred Pat Boone.
And as for Brandes being such a good guy according to "NoToleranceForBadManners" - how about the many contractors he nearly put out of business in the building of his megaMcmansion by stiffing them when payment became due, not to mention the long suffering ex-wife he's trying to destroy financially. Stop drinking the company Kool Aid - he and the harpy he married deserve the poor reputation they have in the area.

I will see Christina Aguilera in her first movie in a movie theatre in Los Angeles during November 2010. During Christina Aguilera's next U.S. tour I will see Christina Aguilera live-in-concert in Los Angeles. I will even see Christina Aguilera on Halloween. Someday Christina Aguilera and I will meet each other on purpose. To see Christina Aguilera totally in the nude on purpose is my all-time #1 favorite way to see Christina Aguilera. Yes Christina Aguilera will invite me onstage to dance with her on purpose. From Christina Aguilera's only male slave and from Christina Aguilera's 2nd future husband.
