Los Angeles - Nicki Minaj is reportedly being paid $5m to host a New Year's Eve party.

The Starships rapper has reportedly commanded $1m more than R&B superstar Beyoncé to host a party in Las Vegas at PURE nightclub, part of Caesars Palace hotel, on 31 December.

The 30-year-old star is set to see in 2013 earning the huge amount for the appearance, while Beyoncé is rumoured to be making $4m for an invitation-only concert at the rival Wynn Hotel, also in Vegas.

According to PURE's website: "The rapper, songwriter and television personality will throw a boisterous party as she leads the countdown to midnight and celebrates with partygoers at Las Vegas' top mega-club."

Forbes list

It is unclear whether Nicki - who celebrated her second multi-platinum album this year when Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded topped both US and UK album charts - will perform during her stint.

The New Year's Eve celebration marks the culmination of a big year for the rapper, who also starred in a three-part fly-on-the-wall documentary series, and was appointed a judge on hit show American Idol for which she is expected to earn between $8m-$12m.

Meanwhile, Beyoncé - who celebrated the birth of her daughter Blue Ivy with rapper husband Jay-Z in January - was ranked number six on Forbes' top earning female music artists of 2012, accumulating $40m.
