Rihanna will not get paid for the Super Bowl 2023 performance. It seems very shocking.
Rihanna is performing at the 2023 Super Bowl Halftime Show, but her bank account will not change from money given to her by the NFL. This is actually customary for performers to not be paid at the Super Bowl as a rule, according to Forbes.
“To quote an NFL spokesperson who chatted with the outlet a few years back, “We do not pay the artists. We cover expenses and production costs.” Though, apparently the NFL does offer a “union scale,” which is “a fraction of the six- and seven-figure sums” performers usually earn.
The Super Bowl show provides massive benefits like exposure to a huge audience. Performers experience massive record sales as their performance will be seen by as many as 192 million people.
Recent shows have been headlined by stars like Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars, Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, and Shakira.
Rihanna’s upcoming performance is seen as her chance to return to her musical roots and reconnect with the audience after spending several years away. Her fan base has been begging for her to release an album for years, and this could help push it out.
Either way, Rihanna is going to come out on top for a performance that is expected to last 13 minutes.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
