The NFL Wants Artists to Pay To Perform at the Superbowl Half-Time Show?
In an almost M. Night Shyamalan type twist, there is a rumor running rampant that the NFL wants to charge performers of the Super Bowl half-time show. Normally it is just a freebie. The artist performs for free and the NFL gets all the benefit. Now though - that would mean that if Paul McCartney (or any artist) wanted to be the artist owning the stage mid game - he would have to pay the NFL for that privilege and not them paying him for the privilege!?
On that note - at last check there were almost 130,000 signatures supporting Weird Al as the performer!
Despite those numbers - according to the Wall Street Journal - it is looking like they are eye balling either Rihanna, Katy Perry, or Coldplay.
