How Much Did Madonna Get Paid For Her Super Bowl Half-Time Performance?
According to Forbes, Madonna’s net worth is well over $500 million, making her one of the richest people in the world. She even made $280 million on her last tour. But guess how much money she earned for her Super Bowl performance last night? Not a thing.
“Typically, the entertainers for the Super Bowl do not get a cash payment,” explains Marc Ganis, president of the consultancy Sportscorp Ltd.
“This is the kind of exposure that entertainers would give their right arm for … they could do 20 Leno and Letterman appearances and still not reach that [kind of] audience.”
Indeed, Madonna has plenty to gain from doing the show for free. Her new album, MDNA, is scheduled for release in March; she is expected perform its first single at the Super Bowl with Nicki Minaj and M.I.A.
The film W.E., which the singer produced and directed, opens in the U.S. this week. And, to top it all off, Madonna will announce dates for her upcoming world tour after the game.
Not to mention, with brands such as Volkswagen paying $3.5 million for a 30-second spot this year, Madonna’s 12-minute performance was worth a whopping $84 million.
