NFL Wants Artists to Pay to Perform at Super Bowl Half-Time Show, Narrows Down Potential Acts
According to the latest Wall Street Journal report, NFL has narrowed down a list of potential artists to perform at Super Bowl 2015 half-time show, but there's a catch - they want money for it.

"In a twist this year, the league has asked artists under consideration for the high-profile gig to pay to play," the report reads, revealing Katy Perry, Rihanna, and Coldplay as top contesters for the headlining spot.

NFL representatives have reportedly "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."

The article also claims that each of the three mentioned performers gave cold replies when approached with the "pay-to-play" idea.

Earlier this month, a highly-successful petition was launched demanding that Weird Al Yankovic gets to rock the Super Bowl crowd. But with the latest update, an additional crowdfunder might be required.
