Via People.com. Well, that didn't take long. Thursday, the NFL announced that Jennifer Lopez and Shakira would be headlining the halftime show for Super Bowl LIV on Feb. 2, 2020 at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida. Twisted Sister lead screamer Dee Snider immediately fired off a tweet saying the NFL has forgotten about all the hard rock that blasts stadiums every Sunday during games:
“WTF!? @shakira and @jlo for this year’s @nfl halftime show!? Once again the great heavy music that rocks the stadiums week after week, game after game is completely ignored. I guess we don’t shake our ass enough!!”
After getting torched by J. Lo and Shakira fans he offered a follow up:
“My point about this years @NFL halftime show isn’t a slight on @shakira or @JLo, it’s frustration that week after week rock is the go to music during games but gets no respect when it comes to the Super Bowl!” he continued, adding, “And I don’t think I’m popular enough for that slot. But @Metallica…”
But he wasn't done...
In a third tweet he slammed Jay Z, who has a partnership through his entertainment and sports company Roc Nation. The NFL signed a deal setting the company as the league’s “live music entertainment strategist” to consult on entertainment, including the Super Bowl halftime show.
“To add insult to injury, Jay Z is promoting this year’s @NFL Super Bowl half time show (no problem with that) and his company is called …ROCK NATION?!” Snider tweeted, adding the hashtag “#Wherestherock?”
Go Dee! He then makes some musical suggestions...
Is he right?
I think we can all agree with his tweet he sent out after Maroon 5 played this year's Super Bowl...
