Looks like Bruno Mars is available for parties, weddings and bar mitzvahs, if you've got the cash.  The New York Daily News reports that a Russian billionaire is going to pay Bruno over a million bucks to sing at his daughter's bat mitzvah, a Jewish coming-of-age celebration.

A source tells the paper that the businessman, Len Blavatnik , is planning to pay Bruno $250,000 per song to perform at the event, and the Grammy-winner is going to sing five songs. Bruno and his band will also be flown to New York City by private jet for the party, which will likely be held at the swanky Plaza Hotel.

As for why Bruno is taking this particular gig, his record label is owned by Warner Music, which Blavatnik in turn happens to own.  According to Forbes , he's worth $17.8 million.
