Speaking with The GuardianCircuit of the Americas president Bobby Epstein said, “We had to make it financially irresistible to [Swift], but it is our fifth-year celebration and we have reason to celebrate and sometimes you spend a little bit on special occasions.” No doubt, that fee will go towards her status as the eighth highest-paid celebrity in the world, according to ForbesShe raked in a a cool $80 million in 2015 alone.

Rumors are circulating that her appearance could coincide with new music, since she’s followed a strong ‘every two years’ course when it comes to dropping her albums (via SPIN). Swift released 1989 in October 2014; she released Red two years prior in 2012.

The 2016 U.S. Grand Prix will take place October 21-23.
