Megastar Jay-Z has apparently taken the high road and won’t be following in the footsteps of his wife, Beyoncé, Michael Jackson, and the various others that have performed during, the halftime show at the NFL’s highly watched Super Bowl event.
According to a report by the Source earlier this week, the superstar rapper was offered the prestigious gig at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minnesota on Feb. 4 but turned it down.
The NFL released a statement that (kind of) addressed the matter.
“No decisions have been made on the performer(s) and we are not going to speculate on particular artists,” league spokesman Brian McCarthy stated. “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.”
Jay-Z dedicated his song “The Story of O.J.” to Kaepernick during a performance earlier this month.
