Maroon 5 Donate $500,000 Superbowl Show Fee To Charity

Maroon 5’s halftime show was pretty piss poor, but on the bright side, they’ve donated their $500,000 show fee to charity.

The American band has donated around £350,000 to the Big Brothers Big Sisters Of America charity following their Super Bowl appearance.

In an interview with E! The band’s frontman, Adam Levine, said, ‘Playing the Super Bowl has been a dream of our band for a long time.

‘We thank the NFL for the opportunity and also to them, along with Interscope Records, for making this donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters, which will have a major impact for children across the country.’

The Big Brothers Big Sisters organisation aims to make ‘meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 5 through young adulthood in communities across the country.’

A spokesperson for the organisation said, ‘We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.’

‘When children and teens have the influence of a caring adult, they are more likely to avoid risky behaviors and to focus on academics. Today’s youth face a variety of challenges, and being matched with a Big Brother or Big Sister can help them navigate these challenges and reach their potential.

Safe to say that the show itself was pretty underwhelming, leaving Twitter all but actually impressed following weeks of build up.

Still, Levine looked in pretty good shape right?
