Jay-Z has turned down an invitation to perform at the halftime show during Super Bowl LII in Minnesota, according to thesource.com.
Although it may seem shocking that someone would turn down a show such as the Super Bowl Halftime show, Jay-Z is not the first to do so.
Last year Adele declined the NFL’s offer to perform. "First of all, I'm not doing the Super Bowl," Adele told crowd during a Los Angeles performance in August 2015. "I mean, come on, that show is not about music. And I don't really -- I can't dance or anything like that. They were very kind, they did ask me, but I said no.”
The NFL has taken a strong stance on artists who publicly decline their invitation to perform, such as Jay-Z.
"No decisions have been made on the performer(s), and we are not going to speculate on particular artists," league spokesman Brian McCarthy told Pro Football Talk. "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.”
For the Super Bowl is as big of an event as it is, let's hope that the NFL can find someone that can put on a better show than we’ve seen in the past few years.
