Hey, it’s that time of year again. Time to start speculating about who’s going to play this year’s Super Bowl half time show. Will it be Drake? Will it be Rihanna? Will it be Taylor Swift? Ariana Grande, perhaps? No, all of your guesses are wrong, wrong, wrong. The word on the street is that it’s going to be… Maroon 5.

NFL bosses have refused to confirm whether or not they’ve booked the worst band in all existence to be their mid-sports game entertainment. Both Billboard and Variety have reported that it is so though.

In a statement, someone from the NFL says: “It’s a Super Bowl tradition to speculate about the performers for the Pepsi Halftime Show. We are continuing to work with Pepsi on our plans but do not have any announcements to make on what will be another epic show”.

Damn it, they managed to get two mentions for the show’s sponsor into that short statement. Bastards. Drink Coke. Drink Coke. Drink Coke.

Anyway, Billboard also reckons that Travis Scott and Cardi B will be brought on stage in an attempt to reduce the trauma of Maroon 5 being on TV for fifteen minutes. Cardi B features on a remix of Maroon 5’s ‘Girls Like You’ that’s currently at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 US singles chart.

Adding Travis Scott would mean that both of Nicki Minaj’s current nemeses would be on stage. Do Maroon 5 have beef with Minaj now? Well, while we’re speculating about things, we might as well throw that into the ring too.

The Super Bowl will take place in Atlanta on 3 Feb. It’s only September now of course, so you can expect a lot more talking about this to come.
