Instead, the artists are paid union scale, a minimum wage guaranteed by a union contract. Despite the lack of a fee, the halftime show provides artists with invaluable exposure and the opportunity to perform for a massive audience.

With last year's Super Bowl being watched by 112.3 million viewers, the exposure can lead to a boost in sales and increase in social media following.

Rihanna recently made headlines for her memorable performance at the Super Bowl LVII halftime show. In a moment that has since gone viral, she touched up her makeup using her Fenty Beauty brand and topped off her look with a new liquid lipstick called "MVP."

While Rihanna was not paid for her performance, the professional dancers were paid, according to a statement from SAG-AFTRA. Overall, the Super Bowl halftime show remains a highly coveted and unforgettable experience for artists.
