Fans want to have a little more say in the 2020 Super Bowl halftime show.

Following Maroon 5's performance at the 2019 game, which has been panned nationwide by fans and critics alike, fans are unwilling to sit back and watch the NFL run themselves into the ground.


The Super Bowl suffered a lot of hiccups in finding its halftime show acts.

After the NFL's handling of Colin Kaepernick's protest during the National Anthem, more than five artists reportedly turned down the gig, including Rihanna, Cardi B and P!nk.

And Maroon 5's performance was...well, there's no other description for it:

a yikes festival.

So fans want to take control of the next halftime show to make sure we never go so wrong again.

The Super Bowl in 2020, which will be held in Miami, is already getting fans hyped up.

In fact, the Miami Super Bowl committee released a video for that very purpose.

And the main voice of the video is exactly who fans want at next year's halftime show.

A fan began a petition on Change.org to get Armando Christian Pérez, aka "Pitbull",
to perform
next year.

"Our city is a melting pot of all different cultures, and Pitbull is the voice for that," said JP Gutierrez, who started the petition.

"I just think we deserve that."





Pitbull was born in Miami on Janury 15, 1981, to Cuban emigrant parents. He underwent a rather rough upbringing but now represents all of the art and culture of Miami proudly.

"I texted it to my group chat like, 'Hey, what if this happened?'" Gutierrez said, about creating the petition.

"I thought someone's probably going to have the idea to do this, so let me be the one to have the initiative to do it."

And his idea is definitely catching fire.








Pitbull himself has not commented on the choice yet, but if fans want him this much, it leaves the door open.

The show can only get better after this year's, after all.

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
