The National Football League is planning to introduce at least one significant change to its halftime show at the Superbowl: in order to perform, superstar acts will pay for the privilege.
According to The Wall Street Journal, the league is considering three acts for its next halftime extravaganza in early 2015: Katy Perry, Rihanna and Coldplay. But unlike in previous years, these performers have been asked to shill out dough in the form of post-Super Bowl tour income or another “financial contribution.”
The news was not received well in some quarters, but some met it with more humor than others. And so, we bring you: the 6 best reactions on Twitter to the NFL’s new “pay to play” scheme, based on no scientific rubric at all and entirely on this writer’s whim.
If the NFL wants "pay to play" for their halftime show, how much do we have to raise to get ICP to really "WOW" America?—

If the NFL really wants to make $ off the halftime show, they should schedule Justin Bieber and make fans pay not to air it.—

I will pay the NFL $50 to be the halftime act. It will be a roller derby demo, but we will sing old Metallica songs and invite Flea to play.—
