Eminem
got an offer he COULD refuse -- an offer to sing at the NFL Owners Party during Super Bowl week that did not meet his price -- $2 MILLION!

Sources connected to the party tell TMZ ... reps from the event were looking for a headline act for the party that followed the dinner, which will be attended by 1,500 lucky folks.  When Eminem's agents laid out the financial terms, we're told the owners group passed.

We're also told the owners were interested in Kanye ... but his fee was too high as well.  As one source put it, "It was $1 million, plus plus plus a lot of other perks."

In the end, we're told the group settled on Janelle Monae, who's going for a very reasonable $150K.

There will be a slew of singers performing at various events in NYC during Super Bowl week.  We're told DJs are the big thing ... and the big ones are going for between $750K and $1 million.

So, we gotta ask ...

This fits right into the thug mentality now in the NFL. How much do you want to bet someone will bring a gun and a fight will break out.

I never heard of Janelle Monae until I saw her on SNL. What a little powerhouse and apparently an underexposed talent. She's smart to take the gig for 150K. Eminem + Janelle together would be even better..

EMINEM WOULD BE THE SHOW TO SEE. Pay him. DJ's are the biggest thing around because mainstream music SUCKS sooooo bad that people need to re-work it; that's where the DJs come in. Eminem puts the effort in and his results are amazing. Pay him. Let's have the show!
