Travis Scott Performing At Super Bowl W/ Maroon 5, Social Media Responds
The quest to add an additional performer to the Super Bowl LIII (53) halftime show has been completed. Earlier this year, it was announced Maroon 5 would be fulfilling a career long dream to play for the Super Bowl halftime show. While social media reacted negatively to the news, the NFL and Pepsi – who sponsor the halftime show – were scrambling to find an additional performer to entice viewership.
Reports on Thursday (Dec. 20) confirmed Travis Scott will be rocking out alongside Adam Levine and his bandmates February 3rd, 2019 at the Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta, GA. Travis joining the Super Bowl comes with mix reviews from social media. Some fans of Travis are excited to see the rapper take the stage, while others are questioning why he joined the performance roster if other notable black artist(s) said no, like Rihanna and rumored Cardi B.
Jermaine Dupri recently spoke out against people who were heckling him for arranging a free concert series called “Welcome to Atlanta,” days leading up to the big day on Sunday (Feb. 3). He shared his frustrations on social media, asking people to stop making him their scapegoat.
Check out social media’s mixed reactions below.
Travis nor Maroon 5 have confirmed or denied performing at the upcoming Super Bowl. It’s not clear if the band and the rapper would be performing together or separate, considering neither artist(s) have a song together.
