According to US Weekly, Miss Fame has certainly rejected an offer of $500 to appear in American pop singer Justin Bieber. It was reported the reason behind rejecting the offer is due to the low pay that Miss Fame didn’t find it worthy enough to star in the music video. However, it not just about the money, the American model thinks that this is the issue ‘about respect.’ The reported stated that the casting director has asked Miss Fame to shoot the music video for three days in Los Angeles for $500 only. Knowing the rate is so low she said that it won’t even cover my airfare and make-up which is usually included.
Miss Fame thought as she will be flying to New York from Paris, the value she will be working on with it should be worth enough. She even did a fact check to know JB’s net worth which $285 million and she was quoted by the website, saying, “To say that you are wanting to utilize me as the one and only talent of my type, you should have asked me what it would cost to hire me to provide my talent.
Because my time is valuable.” That’s not it, Miss Fame posted a few screenshots from her conversation with the casting director, who said that “JB would love for her to be in the video as the ONE AND ONLY drag QUEEN.”
She was further quoted saying, “If you want to involve LGBTQIA+ artist[s] in JB music videos, I suggest respectable compensation/rate for their (mine) time & talent” After this controversy, she took to her Instagram story and said, ‘I can’t pay my rent off of the ‘honour’ or ‘experience.’ She later clarified it to the portal saying that she is not upset with Justin as she has experienced this quite a few times and said, “I’m valued enough that you want me to represent your image, but I’m not valued enough to compensate at a rate that’s ever going to help me build my life.”
