As we draw near the start of the NFL season, names are beginning to fly about who will take the Super Bowl halftime stage. According to HitsDailyDouble, four names in the discussion are Bad Bunny, Jack Harlow, Harry Styles, and Miley Cyrus. Insiders state Styles taking the spot is very unlikely.
HDD also stated Taylor Swift turned down the spot. The performance would occur at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on Feb. 11.
“Talks of Lizzo being a part of the Halftime festivities, or performing the National Anthem, are dead now that she is surrounded by scandal,” a source told The Daily Mail.
An additional source said Lizzo’s team is “desperately trying to come up with a strategy to save her sinking ship.”
Lizzo has released a statement after she was levied with accusations of sexual harassment and racial, religious, and weight discrimination. In a message posted to Twitter, Lizzo states the accusations and the days following have been “gut wrenchingly difficult and overwhelmingly disappointing.”
In the statement, Lizzo says her work ethic and morals have been questioned, in addition to her character and respect. “Usually I chose not to respond to false allegations but these are as unbelievable as they sound and too outrageous to not be addressed,” Lizzo wrote.
She added, “These sensationalized stories are coming from former employees who have already publicly admitted that they were told their behavior on tour was inappropriate and unprofessional.”
Lizzo gave a reason for her message, “I am not here to be looked at as a victim, but I also know that I am not the villain that people and the media have portrayed me to be these last few days. I am very open with my sexuality and expressing myself but I cannot accept or allow people to use that openness to make me out to be something I am not.”
The full statement is available below.
