Concessions Prices Are Through The Roof

Big Game Prices
Fans attending Super Bowl 54 are still complaining about concession prices on social media.  It’s not enough that most fans likely paid more than $6,000 per ticket, but according to tweets from the game, fans were forced to pay $28 for a chicken sandwich, $15 for popcorn and Post Malone’s favorite a large Bud Light cost fans $17.   Nachos were anywhere from $15-$18 depending on what you got on them.  But Super Bowl organizers did push back saying there were discounted concession areas in certain parts of the stadium where you could get a $5 hot dog and a $8 beer…

Controversy Makes Money
How much did J Lo and Shakira make from their controversial performance at the Super Bowl…Well you might know by now that the NFL picks up the tab for production but the performers they don’t get paid….However, both Shakira and JLo’s music was trending on music services the day after and Forbes pointed out that when Maroon 5 performed last year they made $200K more dollars per concert post Super Bowl…The year that Justin Timberlake performed, he album sales rose by 214x and Lady Gaga’s album had dropped to 61 in sales by the time she performed in the super bowl, and the day after it was #2….

Hov Takes A Seat
Jay Z addressed questions about why he and Beyonce sat during the national anthem at Super Bowl 54.  He was asked at Columbia University where he was speaking yesterday if it was a political statement and he said that he and Bey were just being protective parents over an artist that they cared about….
He said they have moved on from the political protest but were just sort of stunned by Demi Lovato and all that she’s been thru and they were marveling and how amazing she looked and performed on that huge stage and didn’t think about standing up.
