Gloria Estefan Denies Rumors She’ll Be a Guest Performer at J.Lo & Shakira’s Super Bowl Show

Published: Tuesday 5th Nov 2019 by Rashad

There aren’t many who can brag about saying no to JAY-Z, but when you’re the Queen of Latin Pop you do what you want.

Gloria Estefan was among the top names expected to be a guest performer at the 2020 Super Bowl Halftime Show after it was announced the spectacle – curated by JAY and headlined by top Latin divas Shakira and Jennifer Lopez – would take place in Miami on February 2.

However, despite her rumored involvement, it turns out the ‘Turn the Beat Around’ hitmaker turned down JAY-Z’s request to participate.  Find out why inside:

When quizzed on her contribution to the highly anticipated showing, Estefan quickly shot down the whispers.

“JAY-Z called me and said, ‘You know something? I’m coming to Miami,’ and Gloria said, ‘I’m not going to the Super Bowl. I don’t want to do it!’” Emilio, 66, said.

As if that’s not enough, the Grammy winner added:

“Come on — those high-stress things? That’s a high stress thing. I’ve done them. I’ve done two. What would be the need [to have me]?” Gloria, 62, said.

“You already have two amazing headliners. And, I’ve been blessed to have already done it twice. It’s good. I’m really thrilled for Shakira and J-Lo that are going to be burning up the stage because those women are hot…”


Ultimately, Estefan cites having already performed at the Halftime show in 1992 and 1999 respectively as her reason to sit this one out.  While we respect the news, we certainly are hoping she has a change of heart.

Gloria also concluded the chat by reminding viewers of her special connection to the ladies.  Few fans know, but the Pop legend not only co-penned ‘Whenever, Wherever‘ for Shaki, but is also credited as the lead songwriter of La Lopez’s 1999 hit, ‘Let’s Get Loud.’

    This is gonna be a train wreck.

    Jlo u should have turned this down.
    Divas with number 1’s like pink, Taylor swift, ariana, Camila, halsey, Selena, lizzo will never agree to share the stage with another diva.

    U and shakira dont even have a duet together.

    What is happening to TGJ?!

    Every post in the comments Camilla Cabello is being discussed even if the post has nothing to do with her. Every. Post.

    The obsession among your readers is frightening and bordering on pathological.

    Why are the comments un-moderated, TGJ?

    Do you all not even care that most readers dont come hear to feel like they’re on a Camilla fansite? Your total disregard and lack of effort to stop this behavior says more about your editors than the trolls ruining your blog posts. ??

    No shade to shakira but Benny Medina why did you let Jay Z interject his artist into J-Lo’s obvious moment?
