The answer is “a lot.”
The video to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” sold for as much as $80 million, the first video by Jacko to earn the multi-platinum artist the record label’s most expensive song with a million dollars.
In 2005, it took an extra $20 million for “Fame,” the single Jackson released shortly after his passing.
“Thriller” cost $1 million per minute, and Jackson sang about a woman who “likes to be in the heat,” according to The Wall Street Journal.
The record company also paid Jackson $2 million for “Achy Breaky Heart,” the album the singer did with producer Quincy Jones.

ROME (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – The Italian-Italian family who were forced to leave their home after the demolition of an old church have received just over 30,000 euros ($38,320) from the Vatican in compensation and are looking to open a small shop there.
The family of three, all Italian nationals from Pescara di Venezia, near Naples are one of more than 4,000 individuals affected by a 2011 church renewal in Naples.
The Italian government is offering the family an unconditional allowance of 1,400 euros per month to maintain basic needs in Italy as well as help with the start-up of a small business, the Vatican said in a statement.
The Vatican is in talks with the Italian government about offering the same sum to other families in the wake of the church’s “revitalisation plan”, which included the demolition of an old cathedral near Pescara di Venezia in late 2010 and the relocation of a priest to a new parish.
According to the 2011 agreement, the Vatican “has agreed to compensate the victims with compensation of 20,000 euros for each of them, an amount that is also fixed for each family, for the duration of the rehabilitation plan” by December 2014.
The family now has less than 30,000 euros left, the Vatican said.
“It has been almost three years… and we are still fighting for the same financial help,” Cristiana Todani, whose husband and children are also Italian nationals, told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.
“Our husband is very sick. We have a son who has autism because of this,” said Todani, whose name has been changed to protect her family from publicity in
