Eminem and Kanye West turn down huge offers to play at Super Bowl party

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

During Super Bowl week people try to get huge musicians to perform. It can cost a lot but sometimes the money can be just too much to turn down, unless you’re Kanye West or Eminem.

Both musicians have released albums this year and are in high demand. The NFL Owners tried to book one or the other for their Super Bowl party but the price was too high.

From TMZ:

Eminem got an offer he COULD refuse — an offer to sing at the NFL Owners Party during Super Bowl week that did not meet his price – $2 MILLION!

Sources connected to the party tell TMZ … reps from the event were looking for a headline act for the party that followed the dinner, which will be attended by 1,500 lucky folks.  When Eminem’s agents laid out the financial terms, we’re told the owners group passed.

We’re also told the owners were interested in Kanye … but his fee was too high as well.  As one source put it, “It was $1 million, plus plus plus a lot of other perks.”

I’m curious what the other perks were. If they’re willing to pay Eminem $2 million, that must have been insane perks for Kanye to be too much on top of his $1 million fee.

Who was in charge of this anyways? Can you imagine Robert Kraft rocking out to Eminem?
