NFL Dismisses Jay Z Halftime Show Rumors


Earlier this week rumors spread that Jay Z turned down the chance to perform at next years NFL Super Bowl halftime show in solidity with the NFL boycott to protest the blacklisting of Colin Kaepernick for his decision to kneel during the national anthem to bring awareness to rampant unchecked police brutality in the Black community [click here if you missed that].

The NFL responds to the rumors...

An NFL spokesperson tells Complex
"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."

When the funds get low, Yonce and Jay will run to the Super Bowl Show faster than Chrisette Michele to Trump's inauguration.

Ya'll haven't heard a peep from Chrisette, she still eating off her million dollar blood money from earlier this year.

Lmao so he started those rumors acting like they begged him to perform and he dismissed them cuz he's a black activist now. Guess he didn't expect they'd come for him and clear that up. Hahaha!
Guess you can't do more than Martin huh?

WHEN the statement went out it said "reports" said he turned it down. Where's the source? It was none other than his dusty ass PR company lying to drum up attention. He's not performance material. All he does is walk back and forth wave his musty armpits and scream profanities. There's no way they considered this elder fuck outta here. He wishes! He mad his wife done it and he ain't been considered, liar got caught! I told y'all yesterday the NFL would call this liar out on his shyt! Site the "reports" and then I'll believe it or show us the email or caller ID of NFL asking. Until then stop lying flop Shawn

Hoodrat you sir are a damn fool for that comment. LMBAO fair to say the rigged ass NFL is not hear for stunt queens, same goes for the former bench warmer turned "activist".

SB should be made for bands..its a stadium for crying out loud.

a basketball game in smaller arena is ideal for pop/rap acts like Jay Z

All of the above and we all know Sean Carter was not asked to perform nor would he ever. Perform: cussing and degrading women?

Performers at the Super Bowl do not get paid and we know Carter does nothing for free. It is all for exposure.

This is FAKE PUBLICITY, again!

I never believed this story anyway. The Carter's love and live for something to brag about...to help them seem bigger than life and the little peons on this planet. That's just one thing I've learned about them that they've shown us time and time again.

I knew it was a lie when I first read it. Jay would never give up a larger audience and bragging rights for a black cause. After all these years these two are constantly putting out lies to make them seem bigger than life. Then he's up there dedicating a song to Colin when we know Jay would never go through the threats, unemployment, and being disrespected that Colin took to make his point. I'm sick of him and his wife.

Damn y'all the self hate is remarkable...can't be happy for a successful black couple this is why we as a people will never get anywhere because of hatin ass bottom feeders... hate to see someone successful if it ain't you .... why jay gotta lie he done already made it and trust me they don't need the money .... how we as a people can sit around and pray for each others downfall is ignorant and disgusting

@6:46 it was proven a lie cause the NFL just said that it wasn't true. If we are just hating on black couples why aren't we going in on Michelle and Barack or Denzel and Pauletta?

Just an observation said...

7:14
6:46 is a damn stan. Jay Z could slap the shit out of him/her and be fine with it. Just drinking the kool aid. I hate liars and that's just what those two are, liars.

Watchwatusay said...

Far from a stan... could care less ... but the NFL is known for lying and they're having ample issues rt now ... and @ 9:55 ... You try and slap me and you wouldn't walk away... like the name says watchwatusay

@1:17 so you're up this late on a weekday which means you don't have a job. But I forgot stanning is a 24 hour job n noone is afraid of you. The only thing you can hurt is those keys you're banging on.

Not sure who will even support Colin! He has a right to kneel. But remember this muthafucka is at work! You do your protesting on your own time not companies. If any of you have an issue with this, take your asses to work and protest some bullshit. I bet my bottom dollar that you nigga's will be out of job...you know why your on companies time!!!!!

I see people here questioning Jay Z's activism intentions . He was the one that shed light on the Khalief Browder situation and is instrumental in the slated closing ( no time soon) of Riker's Island. He was also there with trayvon's parents. Im not a fan of his music but i recognize the stuff he has done . Where tf was yall at ?
