The NFL is being super secret about the Super Bowl halftime show.
According to TMZ, Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige and Eminem have been rehearsing for their highly-anticipated spectacle at SoFi Stadium. Organizers, though, are so scared of leaks that rock music is blaring outside the stadium to drown out the music inside — all in an effort to protect the 12-minute show.
Residents who live near SoFi have been listening to a steady soundtrack of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Bon Jovi, according to the report. One problem: the rehearsals have been going late into the night, and the outside music doesn't stop until Dre and company are finished inside.
The anticipation will be worth it, Mary J says.
"Man, this thing is the most epic thing in music, like in hip-hop, R&B history, this is — man, L.A. is never ever gonna be the same," she told "Good Morning America" on Feb. 9. "I watched the rehearsals — watching each person's performance, I had goosebumps watching it."
"Just know this: It's some history, man. … It's a celebration how far you know hip-hop has come, how far R&B has come … music and our culture," she added.
In a chat with the Associated Press, Snoop noted, "I'm still thinking I'm in a dream because I can't believe that they will let a real hip-hop artist grace the stage in an NFL Super Bowl. We're just going to wait for that moment and put something together that's spectacular, and do what we're known for doing and add on to the legacy."
