Liam Gallagher paid a shocking amount for a 30-minute performance at the B&M mogul’s lavish 50th birthday party.

LIAM GALLAGHER was paid £500,000 to sing at a lavish 50th birthday party for B&M retail king Bobby Arora.

The former Oasis rocker turned solo star earned a salary from just a 30-minute set at Paris’s historic Palais Garnier opera house.

Champagne in white ties, where guests were also entertained with ballet and opera, must have replaced the parka-clad and beer-loving Liam.

At one point, Liam, whose hits with Oasis included the 1995 anthem Roll With It, was joined onstage by birthday boy Bobby, co-owner of discount chain B&M with brothers Simon and Robin.

Among the party guests was Fred Sirieks, the French maître d’ of Channel 4’s First Dates.

A source said, “It was the party that ended all parties.

“We spared no expense. It was luxurious, extravagant and utterly brilliant. Couldn’t have wished for a better place – and that’s when Liam stepped onto the stage.

“No one knew he was performing. He brought down the house.”

During the performance, Liam performed the 1994 Oasis hit “Cigarettes and Alcohol” – and there was certainly no shortage of booze at the party.

The Arora brothers bought the popular B&M chain in 2004, when it was just a Blackpool grocery chain on the brink of bankruptcy.

The company now has 686 department stores across the UK and is valued at £5.1 billion.

So paying Liam was easy for the mega-rich Bobby.

But he was lucky to find a rocker who is busier than ever.

Last week he performed in front of 50,000 fans at Glasgow’s Hampden Stadium and later tweeted about the concert: “Glasgow, you will be my death.

“You were biblical – I love and adore you, stay cool until next time.”

He played in Athens last night as his 20-plus concert world tour continues, including countries such as France, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands, Finland, New Zealand and Australia.

Noel’s £200m Oasis deals

Fresh from his triumph at Glastonbury, Noel Gallagher boasted that he was frequently offered nearly £200m to reform Oasis.

He said, “Not six months go by without someone from Live Nation saying, ‘You know there’s a couple hundred million dollars for you.’

“Sony Music (Oasis record label) would love it. If I pick up the phone today and say that I need to record a new Oasis album, you can make the most outlandish demands, in half an hour you will be on a private jet to make a deal.

“Because they’re like, ‘Yes, that’s a license to print money.’

“While really they have to look for the next Oasis and take the time to make it great.”

Noel admitted on his podcast that he returned to drinking at the festival after quitting smoking due to lockdown.

He added: “I screwed up. I definitely wouldn’t be able to sing on a Sunday night.”

80S pop icon Alison Moyet went invisible as a mature student.

The singer has been studying printing at the University of Brighton under her married name Genevieve Ballard for the last few months.

But she’s going to tell classmates about her day job by inviting them to watch her open for Tears For Fears on their UK tour this week.

A source said: “Alison wanted to be treated like a normal student. Now all her classmates will see what she is doing on stage.”

On Friday, the ex-Yazoo singer had to pull out of her opening act at the QEII Arena in Telford due to Covid.

Rest, Alison, we hope that your fellow students at the university will see you.

SHE called out the stink by saying that the Love Island villa stinks of body odor, and now hostess Laura Whitmore has attacked the housemates yet again.

Speaking of her frustration with their actions, she revealed, “I care about couples and that’s why it’s really hard. Especially with Casa Amor – sometimes I feel like slapping them, you know? Um, no.

Laura said on Melvin Odum’s podcast, “When I come in to surprise them, they’re like, ‘Oh Jesus, who are you?’ and I’m like, “This is an island of love, this is not a holiday!”

“I think they forget. They’re like, “Why are you here now?” I’m like, “Do you remember? Is this the show you’re on? You’re not just having a good time here.”

“Or they get mad, they say if someone gets kicked off the island, and they’re like, ‘That’s really unfair! And I’m like, “That’s what the show is about, this is a TV show – you’re on a TV show.”

Look whose hair is Rihanna

RIANNA and ASAP ROCKY nearly caused a riot when they walked into a hair salon at the Crystal Palace in South London.

The new parents dropped by Friday night after the rapper’s performance at the Wireless Festival, where Rihanna was photographed in the crowd.

And despite the fact that hundreds of screaming fans surrounded him at the barbershop, Rocky decided to cut his hair.

It’s good that they take it all in stride.

Frankie is open for treatment

FRANKIE BRIDGE says she would like to take ketamine to cure her depression.

The former Saturdays singer, who has struggled with her mental health for years, has admitted she would like to try microdosing the party drug.

She said on Should I delete this? podcast: “I still take antidepressants.

“My psychiatrist says I’m the only person he can’t cure. I would like to try other treatments. There are magnetic therapies and microdosing of ketamine.

“I don’t think I’m still there. . . I have two kids and a job to keep.”

THE SPICE GIRLS’ bid for the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury is another step forward thanks to Geri Horner.

On Sunday, Kristen Bell Tattoos reported that Mel B, Mel C, Emma Bunton and Jerry were discussing a world tour ending in Glasto, with Victoria Beckham making a guest appearance.

Jeri fought back, but sources say that has changed.

One of them testified last night: “Jeri had her biggest fears about touring – her son Monty is still very young. But lately she’s become more positive about the idea, and the fact that she and her husband Christian came to Glastonbury last week says a lot.”

Kim Kardashian shows off sixties big screen icon Barbarella posing in metallic swimsuits.

The US reality star, who posed in a gold one-piece swimsuit and a silver bikini, was promoting the new collection of her SKIMS brand (what else?).

For the pool shoot, she paired her costumes with blonde bouffant hair, a clear homage to the sci-fi character Barbarella, played by legendary actress Jane Fonda.

And she showed her sweet side by posing with a few poodles.
Kim, who is currently dating American comedian Pete Davidson, voiced the poodle Dolores in the children’s cartoon Paw Patrol.

So at least she could chat with them between takes.
