Katy Perry and Rihanna Asked to Perform at Super Bowl

We could see Katy Perry and Rihanna performing on Super Bowl Sunday, but it'll cost them.

The Wall Street Journal reports that the NFL is considering the pop princesses and/or Coldplay for the 2015 halftime show, if the artists "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 NFL seems to think that due to the popularity of the Super Bowl show, and the attention it brings to the performers, that they deserve some of the post-profit.

Needless to say, the musicians' reps haven't taken too kindly to this "pay-to-play" request, WSJ reports.

Do you think the halftime performer(s) should have to give some of their earnings to the NFL?

The Super Bowl XLIX halftime show will air on Sunday, Feb. 1, 2015.
