P!nk turned down the opportunity to perform at next year’s Super Bowl Halftime Show.
Sis, what are you thinking?!
Why? What could possibly be a reasonable explanation to opt out and leave us with Maroon 5? Apparently the negotiations were taking too long.

“Rihanna was the front-runner for next year’s super bowl halftime show,” a source told ET.
“CBS and the NFL reached out to Rihanna first, who after thinking about the offer, decided to pass due to the NFL and the situation regarding players kneeling.”
“The offer and exposure would have been great for Rihanna as she’s planning a new album and tour but she stuck to what’s right in her eyes,” the source added.
That doubles down on the original report. Read more about that here.
Honestly, P!nk would be my first choice over pretty much any other pop star out there right now. Her catalogue is jam-packed with hits and she knows how to put on a high-flying show. Hopefully negotiations are quicker come 2020.
