Cody Simpson was paid $2,906 for his one day role on Disney Channel’s ‘So Random!’, according to his contract. Cody was the musical guest & performed his song, ‘All Day.’

    Cody Simpson is NOT the next Justin Bieber. He acts completely different from Justin, his music is more acoustic & he has a low voice (no hate towards Justin, I love him too).

    All of us Simpsonizers like Cody for his music…his good looks are just a bonus :)

    And guys, it’s a television series…no one sings live in TV series or movies.

    For those that think he’s autotuned, he’s not. I’ve heard him sing acapella and he sounds exactly the same as on the studio recorded songs.

    I don’t think he had much of a leg to stand on to demand more money; he’s not that big.

  • brendabass

    That’s terrible.
    That’s a little more I make on a shoot for a commercial or print, and he performed and he’s a celebrity, which brings in tons of more viewers.
    That’s pretty ridiculous. He should have gotten way more.

  • Ranii

    I wonder how much they’d pay if it woulda been Bieber.

  • You Were Thinking It

    I’d take $2000 for a couple of hours work pretty happily

    $2,000 to sing ONE song on a kids show…it may seem very little compared to other gigs, but hey, 2 grand is still A LOT of money. Just saying…

    Exactly. People are so greedy with money. I think it’s absurd for child stars to have millions and millions of dollars anyway. He made more than enough in my opinion.

    it was actually $94 short of three grand, but I get your point. still, it sounds less than the typical amount we’re used to seeing child stars be paid, that’s all I’m saying.

    Cody Simpson is not the next Justin Bieber. Neither is Greyson Chance. It won’t happen just because people keep saying it. Proves that fame on Oceanup does not translate into fame in the real world.

    Ohh, poor him *rolls eyes

    you heartless piece of junk, the only thing to say to you is why didn’t your mother abort you!? ;)

  • xAskTaylorx

    He earned $2,906 just to lip sing on so random?!?! Count me in! Only $94 till $3,000, that sucks. Oh well.

  • AcidPinkLemonade

    Good, the less money he makes, the more humble he’ll be. Hopefully.

    Hey Dani! :)

    Actually it’s $2096, $96 more than 2 grand lol. Yeah it’s less than usual, but it’s more than enough is what I’m saying. My mom works rlly hard for 8-10 hrs straight, and only makes like $100. $2000 for a couple of hours is nothing to complain about. Child stars in general don’t deserve as much as they make IMO.

  • ensuringthecrisis

    Well. For that much, I’d sing three songs WITHOUT the use of auto tune.

    ahh the title says 2,096 and the article says 2,906. that’s almost a $900 difference, OU, just saying.
    but yeah, they do make an insane amount. it’s all about demand though, unfortunately. your mom, as hard-working as I’m sure she is, can easily be replaced. in the eyes of the media, it’s not as easy to replace a name you really need. if you were promised Angelina Jolie, you’re not gonna settle for Lea Michele. that’s how this world is, unfortunately =/

  • BrokenArrow

    Even if he’s not a BIG star that’s really low.

  • thedarksunshine

    That’s an oddly specific number.

    why $2096 ? rofl..and if it were $2906 it would be even more awkward and weirder :P
    and what is oceanup implying by posting this ? do they think it’s a big number or a small one ?

  • -Jenii

    thats it?

  • lioness

    wth he’s fugly
    apart from that, who is he?

  • Anonymous

    the performances in so random are so autotuned lol.
    justin bieber also sang there. at least he looked cute tho cody simpson is fug.

  • Anonymous

    i wanted to say the “live” perfomances lol

  • oceanUP

    cody simpson is the new justin biebER!

  • xAskTaylorx

    Oh. Now it looks like I’ll have to edit my comment. That is still a lot of money though. To lip sing? Again, I would be grateful.

  • kattt.

    Is he famous is Australia? I know he is pseudo-famous here in the States, but people always talk about how he is much bigger over there, is that true?

    Also, Disney probably told him they would pay him less money, but would really advertise this episode well and get his name out there big time.

    ROFL that’s terrible. Well any money is probably good for this abortion looking child.

  • scarlettxo

    he’s going to be so good looking when hes older, i can smell it.. *sigh* which means more crappy music from an untalented kid

    hello doll :)
    that would be considered a low paycheck, especially for a child star. he hasn’t hit the big-time in America yet though, so that explains why it’s not higher.

    Oh. Well isn’t surprise that Disney is kinda bitchy with the money…Miley, Selena,etc did not receive much money compared to the Nick stars…and that’s irrespective when they made the network make money…especially Miley who was the Disney’s money maker machine.

    He probably agreed to it just for face time on Disney channel. Pretty sure I saw half an aisle in Toys R Us with merchandise with this kid’s face on it.
