Eminem Wants $2 Million for 2014 Super Bowl Concert in New York
Eminem wanted $2 million for a Super Bowl 2014 concert at a Super Bowl - but organizers passed.
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 organisers 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.
A source revealed: ''(For Kanye) it was $1 million, plus a lot of other perks.''
As a last resort organisers 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.
