Super Bowl XLIX

NFL Shakes Proverbial Cup; Reportedly Asks Musicians For Money To Play Super Bowl

According to several outlets, the NFL is down to three options for the halftime act of Super Bowl XLIX – but with a twist.

While, Katy Perry, Rihanna, and Coldplay are the final three candidates to perform in Glendale, Arizona on February 1, 2015; reportedly, the NFL is asking the artists to kick in some money from post-Super Bowl performances to the league or pay in order to play on Super Sunday.

This is a remarkably terrible idea. Why would any artist of legitimate merit do this?

Seriously, would the careers of Bruce Springsteen, Prince, The Rolling Stones, Britney Spears, Aerosmith, Michael Jackson, or Beyoncé significantly lack integrity if they did not play at a Super Bowl?

As we all know, playing at the Super Bowl actually indirectly ruined what was left of Janet Jackson’s once-prominent musical career.

Granted, bands normally get a bump from playing at the Super Bowl in the days and weeks that follow. Yet, how could America’s most popular sport pull a maneuver that almost screams, “we need money, please?!”

For the record, my vote is for Katy Perry. Coldplay is too depressing and too many things could probably go awry during Rihanna’s performance.

I got the Eye of the Tiger, and you’re gonna hear me roaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar.
