According to UsWeekly, the NFL has chosen who they want to headline their Super Bowl halftime show in Minneapolis on February 4, 2018. It would have been Jay Z, but he reportedly turned them down. So instead they’re going with Super Bowl halftime show veteran and inoffensive dog whistler Justin Timberlake.
When you’re a true ORIGINAL rap mogul like Jay-Z, you don’t want to be some poser, so taking a page from the Beyoncé playbook and performing the halftime show at the Super Bowl isn’t going to cut it. Leave that kinda shit to Kanye West. He needs the check! CBS Sports says Jay turned down an invite to perform at Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis. Poor Super Bowl is going to head to happy hour early tonight to drown its sorrows from all the rejection. First Adele passed it over last year, and now they can’t get Jay.
The jersey Tom Brady wore during his fifth Super Bowl win last month was stolen shortly after he took it off in the NRG Stadium locker room in Houston, TX. A little over a month later, Tom’s jersey has possibly been found safe and sound.
The Super Bowl is the biggest day for nacho eaters, but it’s also the biggest day of the year for Don Draper types. The Super Bowl is the Super Bowl of advertising; it’s the day commercials go extra. What other time of year could you watch Sexy Mr. Clean thrust his tight CGI ass and think “Yeah, no, this is totally normal.”
So way back in 2015, Veruca Salt’s Canadian counterpart Justin Bieber demanded his own Super Bowl commercial.
I want a super bowl commercial 🙂

His dream came true this year when T-Mobile put him in a Super Bowl commercial.
CNBC says that the NFL is dropping $10 million on the budget for Lady Gaga’s halftime show. And that makes her halftime show the most expensive Super Bowl halftime show in history. Lady Gaga has a tendency to make any production budget look like a trip to Michael’s Crafts with a gift card and a coupon. But this time she might actually need all that money for her performance.
I figured there were only two options for performing a halftime show at the Super Bowl. You could either put on a legendary performance (see: Prince) or you could bring an end zone worth of top shelf fuckery (see: Katy Perry). Well, apparently you can also get political if you want to. We’re only finding this out because there was a rumor that 2017 halftime show performer Lady Gaga was told to keep her thoughts to herself.
