Eminem Demands $2 Million for Super Bowl Gig

EminemEminem reportedly refused to perform at a Super Bowl party unless he was paid $2 million.

The "Monster" rapper is said to have been approached to play a concert at the NFL Owners Party during Super Bowl week in 2014. According to TMZ, the offer was for Eminem to perform a set of his greatest hits for 1,500 guests following a lavish dinner, but organizers were forced to find a replacement act after the rapper demanded the hefty fee.

Reps for the event were also eyeing a performance from Kanye West only to find that his fee was also out of budget. "[For Kanye] it was $1 million, plus a lot of other perks," a source revealed.

As a last resort organizers have reportedly snapped up "Tight Rope" singer Janelle Monae who will perform for a more reasonable $150,000.

The Super Bowl - the climax to the championship game of the NFL season - is famous for having the world's biggest pop stars perform at the half-time show. In recent years Madonna, The Who, Prince and Beyonce have all performed.

The match - which will be held at the MetLife Stadium at the Meadowlands Sports Complex in East Rutherford, New Jersey, on February 2, 2014 - will be celebrated with numerous parties in New York City with many DJs and performers being offered fees of up to $1 million for their services.
