Maroon 5’s Super Bowl Halftime Press Conference Canceled

Published: Wednesday 30th Jan 2019 by Sam

With the 2019 Super Bowl being just days away, the NFL looked set to host a press conference with the Halftime headlinersMaroon 5. A practice that has, over many years, become customary.

However, amidst volumized backlash, the sports giant has pulled the plug on this year’s pre-game event.

Details below…

As widely reported, the fall-out from the handling of Colin Kaepernick‘s Black Lives Matter kneeling protest has seen many – including musicians – publicly disassociate with the league.

With even the likes of Rihanna and Pink said to have turned down the Halftime gig in support of the quarterback.

Being frank about the polarizing response from the public, the NFL have issued a statement confirming that there will be no conference. Instead, they say: “as it’s about music, the artists will let their show do the talking. “

Read in full below…


Maroon 5 will be headlining Halftime this Sunday (Feb 3rd) at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium with guests Big Boi and Travis Scott; the latter of whom (in partnership with the NFL) donated $500,000 to a charity benefitting the disadvantaged youth.

    Lol what’s even the point of it altogether at this point? Even if you did want to do a Super Bowl halftime show, why would you want it to be remembered like this?? It’s tarnished. And it’s not like they’re getting paid for it anyway.

    I do not see the halftime show gig as bigger than the game itself and NFL players. Colin made a choice that was not reflective of what the NFL and his team stands for. I dont see people bullying and policing the NFL players from playing weekly so why are they doing that to music artists? Furthermore, if those same people want to impact the NFL for change then the best method would be to boycott the games and refrain from watching it on tv. In today’s world, there is a lot of fake outrage, cyber bullying, and nothing really gets accomplished on a Civil Rights level for black people. Any movement to help or better blacks is derailed by white women or gay movements.

        Stay ON TOPIC f.aggot! This post is not about R. Kelly. I will NOT tolerate your verbal abuse you gutter trash sissy f.aggot. Stay the f.uck up off my comment box and do NOT ever speak to me again F.AG!

      Yeah TROLLmine does wish rkelly was doing the halftime show. She/he even wrote David (of TGJ) a letter explaing how she/he wanted to do something daring and have kellz pïss on her/him right on stage and officially be inducted into the rkellly pèdo playhouse. Unfortually TROLLmine is 38 years old so that scenario doesn’t work
