Jay Z May Have to Perform at the Super Bowl Since No One Else Wants to Do It: Harry, Taylor, Lizzo, Miley Out of It


Jay Z is having such a tough time booking a musical guest for the Super Bowl he may have to do it himself.

So far, no one wants to do it. In one case, with Lizzo, her scandals immediately cut her from the running.

Taylor Swift has declined to do nine times in a row, they say.

This year, Harry Styles — always on the road — is too pooped.

Miley Cyrus would be a good choice. But the Grammys are on February 4, 2024 — just a week before the Super Bowl. Miley’s going to be singing “Flowers” and rushing to the podium a lot. It would be crazy to go from there to a Super Bowl rehearsal.

Lady Gaga’s done the half time show too recently. Bruce Springsteen? Rolling Stones? Paul McCartney? Unlikely.

Jay Z just put on a big hip hop show two years ago, but maybe this time can appear as the star. Beyonce would be welcome to join. But nothing can top pregnant Rihanna from last year.

The 2024 Super Bowl will take place in Las Vegas. We’ll have to wait and see who Jay Z makes a bet on.
