“You pay me!”

Kelly Clarkson says she won’t headline the Super Bowl halftime show because artists have to pay out of pocket for it.

If you were hoping to hear “Since You Been Gone” and “My Life Would **** Without You” at any Super Bowl halftime show, you’re out of luck. Clarkson says she refuses to do it because they make the artists fork out the cash to put it on. That seems ludicrous, but think of how many millions of people tune in.

In a new interview on The Kane Show, Kelly was asked if she’d ever perform at it. “No you have to pay to do it! I’m not paying, you pay me,” she says. “I heard that and I’m like, ‘wait… I’ve been doing this too long y’all. I ain’t paying people.’”

She goes on to say how much of a football fan she is and what a technical and “hard” performance it would be because the artists are “so removed” from the audience. The “Love So Soft” singer also touches on her fav performance of the past.

Kelly, sis, love you, but this is absurd.
