Russell Wilson Wants Ciara To Headline Super Bowl Halftime Under One Condition

Russell Wilson Wants Ciara To Headline Super Bowl Halftime Under One Condition

Just for even more proof that this is the last thing that Prince would have wanted, Sheila E. - that's Prince's famous drummer - took to Twitter to add her two cents to the whole thing.

Lopez, 48, also covered Aretha Franklin's "Respect"; danced to Cardi B's "Bodak Yellow" and Camila Cabello's "Havana"; was joined by Ne-Yo for a duet of "All I Have"; and let DJ Khaled work the audience up while she changed outfits. He did tease that they're planning to do things Sunday that they've "never quite done before" in a halftime show. This year, the Philadelphia Eagles are going up against reigning champs the New England Patriots, pitting quarterbacks Nick Foles and Tom Brady in an epic showdown.

So, will Janet be making a return for this year' Super Bowl? "The decision to have a costume reveal at the end of my halftime show performance was made after final rehearsals", Janet wrote in a statement.

The notion of a Prince hologram - which was first reported by TMZ - doesn't come completely out of the blue (or the purple).

There aren't many clearer examples of the different standards for women and people of color than the treatment Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake received after their performance at the 2004 Super Bowl.

"To put to rest any speculation or rumors as to whether I will be performing at the Super Bowl tomorrow; I will not", she tweeted.

But as the outrage grew, both singers were under serious scrutiny over the wardrobe malfunction - and it was Jackson who took the heaviest hit.

Meanwhile, Timberlake, who has one Super Bowl performance under his belt, called Prince "the greatest all-around musician". I don't want to get all mushy or anything, but baby, this song's for you.

A quote from a 1998 interview with Guitar World, Prince himself had expressed his disgust at artist holograms, calling them "demonic" and when asked if he would like to be honoured via he hologram he said: "certainly not".

Regardless of which side you may be on, all eyes will be on Timberlake Sunday night in Minneapolis, and he's promised to "rock the stage".

It was the moment when the pair reached the final line of the song that would forever go down in Super Bowl history, however, when Justin sang: "I'm gonna have you naked by the end of this song".
