Dr. Dre Says Eminem Won't Get Penis Out During Super Bowl Half-Time Show

The Super Bowl is just around the corner, and if you were planning on tuning in on the off chance of seeing Eminem's penis, then I'm afraid I have some bad news for you.

The Los Angeles Rams take on the Cincinnati Bengals at the SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, on Sunday, with Dr. Dre due to take to the stage for the half-time show alongside R&B star Mary J Blige, Kendrick Lamar and his rap proteges, Snoop Dogg and Eminem.

Speaking at a press conference, Dre - real name Andre Young - promised that the show would be 'f*****g incredible', but warned there would be no penis flashing.

Asked by a reporter whether he had any surprises up his sleeve, the 56-year-old said: "Yes, but I'm not gonna talk about it."

Clearly pleased to play along with the reference to Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake's infamous 'nipplegate' performance, Dre added: "I had to talk Snoop and Eminem out of pulling their penises out.

"It's just actually Eminem."

The show, a collaboration between the NFL, Pepsi and Roc Nation - Jay-Z's entertainment company - is one of the most coveted slots in music.

It will be a home performance for Dre, Snoop and Lamar, who are all from Southern California.

Dre said: "I'm not trying to be egotistical but who else could do this show here in LA?

"Who else could perform the half-time show other than these amazing artists that we've put together? We're gonna open more doors for hip-hop artists in the future.

“We're gonna show how professional we can be, how dope we can be onstage and how exciting we're gonna be to the fans."

Snoop hailed the 'great moment' and thanked the NFL for giving them the opportunity to perform.

"For us to have the opportunity to bring those two worlds together, we've got the queen of R&B, we've got the King of hip-hop and all of his proteges in the place.

"We appreciate the NFL because we know a lot of people didn't want hip-hop on stage. Well, we here now and there ain't nothing you can do about it."

Dre said watching the set gave him 'goosebumps', adding: "Throughout my life I've always enjoyed being underestimated and I know we're gonna kill that s**t.

"We want to inspire kids to say, 'OK maybe I can get there maybe I can do that one day.'”
