Jason Derulo has reportedly broken his foot and is using a cane, but that's not stopping him from performing at the Super Bowl LVII on Sunday, 12 February.

As sources told TMZ, the Take You Dancing singer-songwriter was playing basketball three weeks ago when he got injured. 

Derulo won't need surgery, but he is reportedly participating in daily physical therapy. The source has confirmed that no matter what, Derulo will perform at the NFL TikTok Tailgate before the big game, as will The Black Keys.

In October, Derulo collaborated with Melbourne electronic music duo Shouse on Never Let You Go, a reworked take on the pair's track, Won't Forget You. Making the announcement on Facebook, they wrote, "Never thought that the legend Jason Derulo hearing our music in Ibiza would lead to a collab like this... but love what he's done! We can't wait to share this with you on November 4th".

Rihanna is headlining the Super Bowl LVII halftime show.

"I can't believe I even said yes. It was one of those things that even when I announced it, I was like, 'OK, I can't take it back. Now, it's like final,'" The Umbrella singer revealed in an Entertainment Tonight interview.

Continuing, she added, "The Super Bowl is one of the biggest stages in the world; it's an entertainer's dream to be on a stage like that. But it's nerve-racking. You want to get it right. You know, everybody's watching. And they're rooting for you. And I want to get it right."

In perhaps the most relatable Rihanna comment, she said, "Nothing would have gotten me out of the house if it wasn't a challenge like that. You could get real comfortable being at home as a mom, [so this is] challenging myself to do something that I've never done before in my career. I have to live up to that challenge."

Rihanna revealed that she would headline the Super Bowl LVII halftime show via a sly Instagram post in late September.

Speaking upon the announcement, Jay-Z offered, "Rihanna is a generational talent, a woman of humble beginnings who has surpassed expectations at every turn." 

“A person born on the small island of Barbados who became one of the most prominent artists ever. Self-made in business and entertainment.”
