Mary J. Blige quotes Eminem lyrics to explain why not being paid for Super Bowl show doesn’t bother her

Mary J. Blige is about to perform at the Super Bowl Halftime Show with Eminem this weekend, and she is using Slim Shady’s lyrics to explain why she does not care about not being paid for the performance.

It is known that artists aren’t getting paid to play at the Super Bowl but it is worth far more than most people realize, with Mary J. Blige revealing that she’ll be making money from the forthcoming shows for the rest of her life.

“Listen, you gonna be paid for the rest of your life off of this. They don’t have to pay me. But if it was paying it would be a lot of money. But I’m good. This is the opportunity of a lifetime. Eminem says that in ‘Lose Yourself,’ this is the opportunity of a lifetime.” she said during the interview on The Cruz Show.
