As the pickings keep on getting slimmer, Variety and Us Weekly are reporting that the NFL has landed on Maroon 5 as the 2019 Super Bowl halftime performers. They’ve apparently been extended an offer and “pretty much accepted” the slot for Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta, ignoring all of Bruno Mars’s efforts to get a hometown rapper to headline. (Outkast! Migos! T.I.! Gucci Mane! Literally anyone but Maroon 5!) On the bright side, maybe we’ll get a Cardi B cameo. The NFL has, of course, not commented or confirmed.
