The Weeknd Spent $7 Million Of His Own Money On Super Bowl Halftime Show

Published: Tuesday 2nd Feb 2021 by Ryan

The Weeknd is not afraid to spend money in order to make money.

In a new interview with Billboard, his managers Wassim Slaiby and Amir Esmailian revealed just how much of his own money the singer put up for his performance at this year’s Super Bowl.

Full story below…

While the Super Bowl organizers are covering the typical production costs; however, Slaiby revealed the ‘Save Your Tears’ singer voluntarily offered $7 million of his own money to “make this Halftime Show be what he envisioned.”

Despite the lack of fans that will appear live – the stadium will only be a third full due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic – The Weeknd wants to put together a show that can go beyond the walls of the stadium and resonate with the fans at home. He said:

“We’ve been really focusing on dialing in on the fans at home and making performances a cinematic experience, and we want to do that with the Super Bowl.”

Ahead of his big performance, the music superstar is also gearing up to release his first greatest hits album called ‘The Highlights.’

    That’s tacky as fûck. You know he ask his managers to say that. His ego bigger than his balls.

    I’m not looking forward to that show, but I wish him well.
    A greatest hits now is premature.
    It doesn’t matter how many singles you’ve released. Look at how long MJB waited to release one, she was like 15 years into her career or something.

    This is sure to be interesting. I’ve never considered him to be even a good performer. He just stands there so it is wise of him to invest in a production however I’m just not sure about him being on such a grand stage. Also, a greatest hits??

      Let the boy grow, a stage as grand as this will push him to build as a performer. He has the music, the collaborations, the budget, the Prince/MJ swag to blow it out the park. All he just needs now is to look in the mirror and wear his ‘Im the Weeknd’ crown, believe it, and rock that stage like his life depends on it. he is a shy guy naturally and thats why he has always held back, but now is his time.

    We don’t want to see this ashy man on the Superbowl, I remember when we used to have real artist not just anyone performing.

    Abel was a part of the new wave of lackluster vocalist that took over music.. bring back REAL SINGERS who have SOUL & raw emotion in their music.. I’m so overall this watered down pop friendly (not in a good authentic way) bull s***…

  12. Popdem tagz February 2, 2021

    Michael Jackson did not pave the way for this B*******.. the mainstream has gone to HELL over the last 10 years.. smh
