According to some reports, the National Football league has made its top three choices for halftime entertainment at the 2015 Super Bowl: Katy Perry, Rihanna and Coldplay.
And the league has reached out to each of them to ask if they’d be willing to pay for the privilege.
Typically, Super Bowl halftime performers don’t get paid, but the NFL picks up travel, accommodations and production charges.
This year, It appears that the NFL has run out of money – so they want the halftime entertainers to pony up some dinero.
Let’s see how far down the A-list they have to go before they find someone willing to pay.
Meanwhile, it’s making more and more sense to have someone like Weird Al Yankovic do the halftime entertainment. If the league’s going to be a joke, then why not the Super Bowl’s halftime show?
