The National Football League seems to be having a problem finding musical acts to play the halftime show for the Super Bowl. Musicians are starting to call the prime time performance slot the “least-wanted gig” in music.
Variety Magazine has reported that the band Maroon 5 is the only act scheduled to perform during this year’s Super Bowl halftime show, but the band has yet to confirm their appearance according to NME, and they can’t find one single act willing to make a “special appearance” during their 15-minute set.
“According to sources,” Variety reports, “the band has reached out to more than a half-dozen stars to appear as featured guests during the 13-minute slot midway through Super Bowl, but so far, none have agreed to do it.
The big problem seems to be the NFL and its relationship with the racist second-string QB Colin Kaepernick.

Just days after word broke that Maroon 5 would be performing in the Super Bowl halftime show, Not-so-funny comedian Amy Schumer began an annoying crusade to force the band to drop the NFL’s Super Bowl, publicly harassing them on social media and demanding that they “stand up for your brothers and sisters of color” by renouncing the gig until Colin Kaepernick is signed by an NFL team. Talk about typical leftist behavior. Bully until people cave. That seems to be the leftist motto nowadays.
The NFL has become a joke to the world. Demanding the NFL to sign a QB that is no good and has never been good, is absolutely ridiculous. When leftists don’t get their way..they harass and bully until a weak individual caves to their demands. The NFL should also be worrying about having viewers. Most of America has said goodbye to the NFL. They may still have some fans that watch..but the majority of America is fed up with the disrespect to our country and our nation’s heroes.
The anti-American insanity has destroyed the NFL. Good luck getting any viewers.

The shaming gave way to a Change.org petition that now has more than 78,000 signatures, begging the band to drop the Super Bowl.
In response to the petition, Maroon 5 insisted that they had not confirmed their appearance and that they could not comment on a situation that was still fluid.
“What the hell are you talking about? It’s a rumor. I can neither confirm nor deny the truth of this rumor”, Levine told media. “It’s definitely a rumor. And the rumor’s a rumor that everyone seems to be discussing. It’s the Super Bowl. It’s a great event and there’s gonna be a band performing … or an artist of some kind performing at halftime. And it’s gonna be great, regardless of who it is.”
Other artists, like Rihanna, have said they would turn down the gig if asked, unless Kaepernick finds his way onto a team — something that seemed unlikely a few months ago, but seems possible now that the Redskins are looking for a replacement QB who’s played in the league more recently than 2015. Kaepernick’s lawsuit against the NFL alleging collusion between team owners and the federal government — including President Donald Trump — is also, apparently, headed to the bargaining table.
