Beyoncé loves grey haired men

Together with grey haired actor Steve Martin (inspector Clouseau, photo left), Jean Reno and Kevin Kline she is also playing the leading role as Xania (an international pop singer) in the movie "The Pink Panther" (DVD's at amazon).

Millions - "Because I'm worth it"
The African singer Beyoncé Knowles is the best paid "hairmodel" in the world.
The successful RnB queen's exceptional annual wage for only ten days of shooting is 4.8 million US Dollars. She has to be available ten days a year for photo shoots and make personal appearances within that time.
L`Oreal has the option to extend those ten days to a maximum of two days more and of course she will get paid 26.000 US Dollar a day for the extra time. An additional 20% commission of this amount is paid to Wilhelmina Artist management, inc.
The appropriately titled L`Oreal slogan for the advertising campaign for England & America is Because I'm worth it.
Acording to "The Sun" some juicy contract details(14 pages):
"Beyonce's must keep her hair in "excellent condition" and she has agreed to inform L`Oreal if she plans to make "any radical change" or "any alteration" to her hair.
If she cannot work for more than a month due to illness, sun burn or injuries these will be grounds to void the contract.

Another Internetsite put the complete contract of L`Oreal ( Advertising Agency McCann) online.
Also in the contract, it states that L'Oreal has the right to inspect Beyonce's hair, but only after giving her two weeks notice.
Beyonce would only sign the contract if her mother, Tina Knowles, would be one of the stylists working on her hair at all shoots.
