Rihanna is about to get paid. The pop star is set to receive almost $10 million to turn on the Christmas lights at Westfield in Stratford, East London.

According to The Sun, the ‘Diamonds’ singer will earn a £5 million check for appearing at the event — which kicks off the holiday season at the popular mall — located across the way from the Olympic Park. Of course, RiRi won’t just be flipping a switch. She is also scheduled to perform a short set for her fans.

This isn’t the Barbadian beauty’s first Westfield Christmas lighting — she was the featured guest at the Shepherd’s Bush location in 2010. A source told the paper, “Rihanna’s thrilled she has been asked again. She knows it’s a big deal and is totally up for it — if it fits in with her schedule.”

Rihanna has yet to sign on the dotted line, but if everything works out the star will earn a hefty paycheck, while appearing in front of an expected 20,000 people. Myf Ryan, general manager for marketing at Westfield Stratford, added, “The Christmas light switch-on at Westfield Stratford City is one of the highlights of the festive calendar. This year we want to thank our loyal shoppers by giving them something they’ll never forget.”
