Justin Timberlake Could Make Super Bowl Return: Report
Will Justin Timberlake return to the Super Bowl next year — 14 years after his role in the infamous Janet Jackson “wardrobe malfunction?”
According to Variety, the pop star is a “frontrunner” in the search for acts to perform during halftime at Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis on Feb. 3.
Timberlake reportedly has a new album coming out at the beginning of 2018, which would make the Super Bowl halftime exposure valuable (artists don’t get paid to perform at the Super Bowl).
But sources told the publication the NFL is still upset about Timberlake's 2004 appearance, in which he exposed Jackson's nipple on live TV.
Variety said Jay-Z has already turned down an offer from the NFL to be a part of the show and rumours of Taylor Swift are just that because she promotes Diet Coke and the halftime show is sponsored by Pepsi.
Other names being mentioned include P!nk, Sam Smith, Foo Fighters and Ed Sheeran.
An announcement is expected to be made any day now.
This year’s halftime show featured Lady Gaga. Previous acts include Madonna, Beyoncé, The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney and Prince.
