P!nk On 2020 Super Bowl Halftime Show: ‘They Should Give It To Janet Jackson’

Published: Thursday 31st Oct 2019 by Rashad

Pop force P!nk has never made a secret of her longstanding admiration of Pop queen Janet Jackson.

Even before joining the likes of Usher and Mya in an iconic MTV dance tribute to the diva’s legendary music videos, the 40-year-old (born Alecia Moore) has saluted Ms. Jackson for being one of the reasons she pursued a career in show business.

As such, it’s no surprise when Billboard recently quizzed Moore for thoughts about the upcoming Super Bowl Halftime Show, she pointed to its 2004 headliner as her first choice as a preferred performer.

While taking to the latest issue of Billboard magazine to address the past, present, and future of her enduring career (including the record-breaking ‘Beautiful Trauma’ tour), P!nk admitted headlining a Super Bowl halftime show is no longer on her “bucket list” due to the NFL’s reported mistreatment of athletes of color.  After opening last year’s game with the national anthem (click here to watch), the songstress says she wasn’t interested in headlining this year’s hafltime show (despite an offer).

 “I’d probably take a knee and get carried out,” she says, echoing stars like Rihanna and Cardi B, who have turned down Super Bowl opportunities in solidarity with Kaepernick and other players.

The interview, which took place days before Jennifer Lopez and Shakira were announced to hold the coveted slot (click here to read more), saw Moore point out who she’d like to have the honor.

“They should give it to Janet Jackson,” she suggests. “That’s who should be doing the Super Bowl. There’s rumblings around J. Lo, Rihanna — they all deserve it. They should only give it, because of the controversy, to African-American or Latina women for a while.”

    Janet wouldn’t do it. They tried derailing her but she’d already solidified herself as one of the greatest performing, most innovating, biggest selling artists of all time and in the long run it can’t erase her legendary greatness. Meanwhile Les Moonves gets fired, his coins a revoked and charged with sexual conduct. Queen Janet is unbothered

    Woke queen

    Super bowl does nothing for an artiste or their sales.

    Look at Beyonce for example, after performing like a warrior with destiny’s child, no increase in sales in her catalogue

    Some few years later she came back and performed formation, did the performance impact the sales? NO. Formation stalled at number 10.

      Yaaaaaaaas!!! I totally agree! The worldwide viewer ratings would shatter records if Janet performed.

    AMEN Pink. I won’t address that loser trash who thinks IT knows what Janet would and would not do with no receipts! Randy is often Janet’s mouthpiece and he made it perfectly clear Janet would consider it if the whole performance is hers alone!

    • Clarkson 1 October 31, 2019

    • Boytoy1814 October 31, 2019

      Janet should do it alone. Her music catalog is EPIC!!🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

    well, jennifer lopez declined two times the superbowl because she was busy (las vegas residency) and the politics (make an album to promote) jennifer is more relevant than janet and pink together, she is an international superstar
    In the last year She has:
    Second act- $73 million.
    Hustlers – $127 million. (Oscar/Golden globe nomination)
    It’s my party tour – $70 million (including International dates).
    Promise- selling extremely well.
    World of Dance.
    Passing 100 million Instagram Followers
    The Versace show (caused a media stir)
    The Vanguard award
    Then the Music
    Pre-Superbowl Concert

      U are crazy if u put Janet THE Jackson with jlo, Jlo is a cute artist but baby Janet is LEGENDARY, watch how almost every superstar talks about her, oh please delete your comment, u must be another sad Latino who is racist and thinks miss-use-other-people voices. Janet is groundbreaking and jlo with the help of her team steals ideas right and left. I’m disgusted by your comment

      • Kevon October 31, 2019

        And what makes you think jlo not legendary

    • #TheTruth November 1, 2019

      Pink’s MUSIC career is much more successful than J.Lo.

    • #TheTruth November 1, 2019

      Pink’s MUSIC career is much bigger than J.Lo’s, so is her touring history. Pink has been more relevant on the charts than her while she’s been in the game for like 20 years.

      J.Lo is a big celebrity but her music hasn’t been selling for a while. Her last big hit was On The Floor in 2011 (or 2010).

    • C November 1, 2019

      J.LO WAS NEVER OFFERED the Superbowl.

      I worked at Pepsi for 7 years and we knew who was being offered the gig. The FIRST time she was considered was ONLY last year.

  5. eric October 31, 2019

    I don’t really agree with her on the Superbowl needing to give the halftime spot to artists of color all because of the controversy, because it’s superficial and doesn’t bring any real change to the issue. What changed since last year’s Superbowl with Travis Scott? Absolutely nothing! Players are still getting cut for kneeling.

    • Keith October 31, 2019

      You have a point! But kudos to P!NK for the Janet mention…

      • Jeans October 31, 2019

        Pink, you ain’t lied. Give it to the greatest female performer of all time!

  6. S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. November 1, 2019

    Shut up Pink! I can’t stand her.

  7. DJ Ephraim Adamz November 8, 2019

    Ratings would be through the roof if Janet returned because of the 2004 controversy and media headlines being thirsty for gossip. Plus after Vegas and her induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame most eyes will be rooting for her especially since Justin Timberlake’s halftime was so terrible
