During an interview posted to The Jasmine Brand’s Instagram on Thursday, the 51-year-old singer and actress revealed that she isn’t being paid for her upcoming halftime show performance.

But, despite not earning even a dime for her upcoming performance – in which she is set to share the Super Bowl stage with the likes of Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, and Eminem – the Family Affair singer shared that she isn’t worried about not being compensated for Sunday’s gig, because it is “the opportunity of a lifetime.”

“Man, this thing is the most epic thing in music, like in hip-hop, R&B history, this is — man, L.A. is never ever gonna be the same,” Blige said during the morning talk show. “I watched the rehearsals — watching each person’s performance, I had goosebumps watching it.”

“Just know this: It’s some history, man,” she added. “It’s a celebration how far you know hip-hop has come, how far R&B has come…music and our culture.”
