Pia Toscano -- $100,000 to SING at Private Event

4/30/2011 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"American Idol" reject Pia Toscano just signed a deal to make $100,000 in ONE NIGHT -- and all she has to do is sing a couple of songs at a private event ... TMZ has learned.

0429_PIA_EX_TMZ_01

Sources connected to the deal tell us ... Pia has agreed to perform at a private birthday party on May 8th ... which happens to be Mother's Day.  We're told the deal will only require Pia to perform a small handful of songs.

According to sources, Pia was initially offered $50,000 for the gig and she TURNED IT DOWN ... but the people throwing the party wanted Pia so badly, they immediately doubled their offer ... and Pia signed without batting an eye.

We're told Pia will be picked up in L.A. in a limo and chauffeured directly to the party ... though it's unclear exactly where the party will go down.

Not too shabby.

I know none of them can cut an album till the tour is over. Can they even do private gigs? I guess no one ever offered a castoff a private appearance fee other than Pia, so there's no precedent.

Well, I think she's a tad over-rated, but I'm for capitalism so the more she can make the better. Better make it while you can. Who knows how long her proverbial 15 minutes will last. Maybe she'll be the next Barbra Streisand (figuratively) and have a nice, long career but in this fickle age I doubt it.

So make as much as money as you can, honey. Nothing wrong with it. People are going to make money off of you (read: TMZ and others capitalizing off of gossip stories about your life) so you should be able to make some in return!

Gads..That photo is so not flattering. Wow Idol must have used magic to make her look as good as she did on camera. And she is already a money grubber too now. Girl, your 15 minutes is almost up...and whoever said it pays be "looser" you are so right she is quite loose, so we hear!

Great. Now she can use the money to buy a better personality. The current is coma inducing.
