FROM NEWS ARTICLE:

• The performers don’t get paid

Of course you read this on Shutdown Corner yesterday, but Beyonce won’t get paid for performing. Nobody else has gotten paid by the NFL for performing at halftime either. The artists get expenses paid for and that’s it.

It makes sense, because even the biggest artists in the world aren’t going to have an audience of more than 110 million people ever again. The exposure is priceless, as long as you don’t screw it up (hello, Black Eyed Peas!). And if Michael Jackson didn’t get paid for his halftime show, you’ve got no shot.
