Eminem demands $2 million for Super Bowl party performance

By Chelsea Lewis ,

The "Rap God" will only rap if the price is right. Eminem reportedly said that he would need a $2 million pay day to perform at a Super Bowl party.

TMZ reported that NFL owners are planning on having a private party during Super Bowl weekend and asked Eminem to perform at the party. About 1,5000 people will be in attendance.

Eminem recently returned to the music industry with his album MMLP2, which features hits like "The Monster" and "Rap God."

When representatives for Eminem laid out his financial terms of $2 million, the NFL owners passed.

Kanye West was also asked to perform at the private event but turned down the offer. West was asking for $1 million to perform and many additional perks, The Bleacher Report added.

West is currently on tour promoting his, Yeezus album.

Instead of West or Eminem, the owners decided on Janelle Monae, who only requested $150,000 for the performance. Monae was featured on one of the breakout singles of 2013, fun.'s "We Are Young."
