EMINEM

Report: Shady Banks $3.3 MIL

For Two Shows This Weekend

8/22/2011 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0822_eminem_getty$66,000 per song ... that's how much money Eminem reportedly made to perform at a U.K. music festival this weekend -- and he performed roughly FIFTY songs!!!

Eminem hit the stage at the V Festival in England this weekend -- a two night affair. According to the British tabloid The Sun, Slim Shady (pictured above at the festival) raked in a cool TWO MILLION pounds for the 2 nights of work ... which translates to roughly $3.3 million.

Em reportedly performed for 90 minutes on both Saturday and Sunday night -- and was joined on stage by Rihanna ... who is said to have received around $825,000 per night to perform as well.

Calls and emails to Em's reps were not immediately returned.

Recovery, indeed. Check out a snippet of the performance below.

Em performed 28 songs & not 50 songs. So that makes it around $117,857 per song or or $36,666 per minute or $611 per second. Eminem was also paid $2 million for his gig at Osheaga 2011 last month & over $7.5 million for his Detroit - New York shows last year with Jay-Z... #YouCant****WithEm
