Jay-Z turns down LII halftime show

Jay-Z has no interest in following in Beyonce's footsteps with Super Bowl show

However, they did speculate that he could have declined in support of Colin Kaepernick, who got a shoutout from Jay-Z during a concert in NY last week.

Jay-Z's wife Beyonce headlined the halftime show at Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans and returned to the stage at Super Bowl 50 in 2016. Kaepernick, whose contract with the 49ers was not renewed this summer (17), remains a free agent after sparking a backlash for kneeling during the US national anthem at games previous year (16) to protest discrimination against his fellow African-Americans.

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

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

The U.S. military has described the exercises as training for readiness "to fight tonight" against North Korea if needed. The drills kicked off on September 8 and are scheduled to end on the 25th.

The Super Bowl halftime show has evolved into an elaborate spectacle, in order to keep television viewers around the world engaged when they might otherwise not be during a break in the game. Last year, Adele declined a similar offer and Lady Gaga agreed to do it.

JAY-Z has not commented on the Super Bowl performance claims, but now National Football League spokesman Brian McCarthy has spoken out to insist the speculation is a little premature. When it is time to announce her name we will do it.

The upcoming Super Bowl LII is slated for February 4, 2018 at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minn.
