Cardi B has just released her new single, Money, but ironically the rapper has been forced to deny reports that she demanded a million dollar pay cheque to perform at the Super Bowl.
The Bodak Yellow rapper was allegedly in talks with the NFL to join Maroon 5 during the bands halftime show performance in February 2019, to perform their chart-topping collaboration Girls Like You.
A source claimed that Cardi was making big demands in their negotiations, including a $1 million (£791,400) fee.
Its important to note that the NFL never pays artists to perform at the Super Bowl halftime show – not even Beyonce or Madonna got a payday but they do tend to receive complimentary perks, such as production, wardrobe and transport expenses being covered.
An insider reportedly told Page Six of Cardis so-called demands: Cardi B is standing tough and holding out. She doesnt want to do it unless they roll out the red carpet for her.
Shutting down the claims, a rep said: The rumour circulating that she wants a million dollars and she wants her own set is false. There was never a firm offer to begin with for a performance.
There [were] talks about it, but she was not particularly interested in participating because of how she feels about Colin Kaepernick and the whole movement . . .
But again, there was never a solid offer for her to say yes or no to regarding the Super Bowl. She is already confirmed to do a set with Bruno Mars that weekend.
Cardi, 26, will join her Finesse collaborator Bruno for a headline show at the Super Bowl Music Fest, which takes place between 31 January and 4 February.
