Looks like Bruno Mars got out just in time.

A new report from the Wall Street Journal alleges the NFL is now asking its field of potential Super Bowl halftime show acts to pay for the privilege to play that prized gig.

More than 115 million people saw Mars perform at this year's Super Bowl halftime show, leading to the singer's album sales skyrocketing after the performance.

Now the NFL wants a piece of that action. See more about the report in this Newsy video:
