That just proved how cheap they think she is…. If billionaires would pay a token of $40,000 for someone like Tessanne to perform… That’s an insult and being taken for granted.


COME ON!! You can’t be serious saying such nonsense!!

Now If they ask her to sing and strip for free. Then you have a point, otherwise… YAWN!!


Well done. hope their friends will get jealous and follow suite.
