    Default NFL Suggests Artists Pay to Play Superbowl

    NFL Suggests Artists Pay to Play Superbowl

    The NFL reportedly asked Katy Perry, Rihanna and Coldplay, their top choices to play the 2015 Super Bowl Halftime Show, if they would be willing to pay the league in order to secure one of the biggest gigs in the world, according to The Wall Street Journal.

    When reaching out to artists, league representatives asked some acts if they would exchange a headlining slot for a portion of their post-Super Bowl tour earnings, or make another type of financial contribution to the NFL. Sources told the Journal that the suggestion, perhaps unsurprisingly, "got a chilly reception from the candidates' representatives."

    While the NFL doesn't typically pay artists who perform during the Super Bowl Halftime Show, they do tend to cover travel and production expenses, which can be upwards of a million dollars. Considering the Halftime Show has only grown more popular in recent years — this year's performance with Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers drew 115.3 million viewers, compared to the 112.2 million who watched the game — it makes sense they'd want a piece of the pie.

    The artists themselves do tend to capitalize on the exposure of such a performance as well: Beyoncé announced her "Mrs. Carter Show" world tour right after her performance in 2013, while tickets to Mars' "Moonshine Jungle" tour went on sale the Monday after his Super Bowl set. But quantifying Super Bowl exposure, specifically in the form of ticket sales, is tricky, especially for established artists like Rihanna, Perry and Coldplay who have been grossing millions on the road for years.

    No decisions have been made about this year's Super Bowl Halftime performer, and as NFL spokeswoman Joanna Hunter noted, the league's contracts with artists are confidential. Super Bowl XLIX will take place outside of Phoenix on February 1st, 2015.

    Awesome. I would never want them playing the Super Bowl. The scrutiny and criticism would be off the hook. Dave would get ripped to shreds.

    Fuck the NFL.

    I will of course watch the games, but damn, how much fucking money do you need to make?

    They want to stay young. Ed would never do it even if asked.

    If they actually force an act to pay, everyone should switch over to the puppy bowl for halftime.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Awfully greedy of the NFL I think, they make plenty of money as it is.

    Why would anyone want to PAY to be ridiculed by the vast majority of the world?

    Very few acts get out of the Super Bowl unscathed. The simple format of it makes for it to be a difficult gig, and to pay for the privilege?

    Think of how many starving kids Bono could save with that fee!
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    That's the only way VH IV would possibly be considered.
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    Q: who was the biggest douche that you have worked with?

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"

    Now the new David-Lee-Roth-Van Halen album, “Tokyo Dome In Concert,” is available for purchase, and it’s super, super, super, super, super, super, crazy bad. - Doug Elfman
