In the documentary, she also talked about sharing her 2020 Super Bowl show with Shakira. She said it was “the worst idea.”  She was upset because two people had to share the stage for the halftime show and called it “the worst idea in the world”. The halftime show ran for about 14 minutes, giving both of them only about seven minutes each to perform some of their best songs.

She said in her documentary, “This is the worst idea in the world to have two people perform at the Super Bowl. It was the worst idea in the world, If it was going to be a double-headliner, they should have given us 20 minutes. That’s what they should’ve f**king done.”
