NFL responds to Jay-Z Superbowl Rumors

NFL responds to rumours of JAY-Z Super Bowl half-time show

The NFL has responded to rumours that JAY-Z has turned down an offer to perform at the 2018 Super Bowl half-time show.

It’s reported the rapper refused to do the show out of respect for Colin Kaepernick.

He’s an American footballer who refuses to stand during the US national anthem because of what he calls the oppression of people of colour in America.

JAY-Z dedicated a song to him during a New York show earlier this month.

They said: “No decisions have been made on the performer(s) and we are not going to speculate on particular artists.

“Along with Pepsi, we know that we will put on a spectacular show. When it is time to announce her name we will do it. Or his name. Or their names.”

Lady Gaga played the 2017 half-time show.

The performance was the second most-watched Super Bowl half-time show of all-time.

Next year’s Super Bowl will take place on 4 February 2018 at the US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

Earlier this month it was reported that Britney Spears was “in talks” to perform – but the rumours were quickly denied.

“I can tell you it’s not Britney,” said Justin Toman, head of sports marketing for the Super Bowl main sponsor PepsiCo.

Kanye West, Pink, Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake, Justin Bieber and Rihanna are among the other names apparently being considered for next year’s half-time show.
