Maroon 5 Super Bowl halftime show in doubt?
Adam Levine looks uncertain if Maroon 5 will perform at the Super Bowl Halftime show, as more than 64,000 people signed a petition asking the group to retire. "I still make a lot of things," Levine told Variety in a new interview on Tuesday. The NFL has not yet announced the name of this year's artist, but Maroon 5 would have accepted after Rihanna rejected an offer of support to former quarterback Colin Kaepernick and his national anthem to protest police brutality and racial inequality. Amy Schumer also refused to appear in another Super Bowl advertisement until the league changes.
Earlier this month, "The Voice" also declined to confirm the position in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres. "It's a rumor, I can neither confirm nor deny the veracity of this rumor," he said. "It's the Super Bowl .It's a great event and … Anyone lucky enough to get this gig will probably crush it … The one who does it is probably both nervous and excited, all of which is speculative because I do not do it. " I do not know who I am talking about "
If Maroon 5 plays, we do not know who could join them. The group's successes include collaborations with Rihanna and Cardi B, both of whom say they will not do it. "When they rehired Colin Kaepernick," Cardi told TMZ in September.
& # 39; Candyman & # 39; to restart
The "Candyman" reboot produced by Jordan Peele is getting closer as Variety Nia DaCosta will make a new horror film about the character of Clive Barker. Tony Todd played the role of the croaker in the first film in 1992, but no casting was announced for the "spiritual sequel". Peele, who also co-wrote the screenplay, explains that "the original was a flagship film for black portrayal in the horror genre" and "a major inspiration for me as a filmmaker". The new "Candyman" is due to be released on June 12, 2020.
