Every year, the Super Bowl racks up more than 100 million viewers, and the price for ads continues to rise.
Now the NFL has reportedly found a way to make even more money from the event, by considering charging a fee from the Super Bowl Halftime Show performer.
The National Football League has allegedly asked Katy Perry, Rihanna and Coldplay if they would pay to play during the highly-watched program, the “Wall Street Journal” reports (via “Spin”).
The “WSJ” article states that NFL reps “asked at least some of the acts if they would be willing to contribute a portion of their post-Super Bowl tour income to the league, or if they would make some other type of financial contribution, in exchange for the halftime gig.”
Beyonce didn’t have to pay to perform earlier this year, but we’re pretty sure she’d tell ‘em she’s irreplaceable.
