Amid growing rumors that sheâ€™s slated to perform, the superstar made an appearance on Live with Kelly and Ryan on Wednesday morning, where she was slyly asked by co-host Ryan Seacrest whether she plans to be in Miami for the 2020 Super Bowl.
â€œI donâ€™t know,â€ Lopez, 50, responded. â€œI know everybodyâ€™s asking me. Theyâ€™re starting to think Iâ€™m telling people things. I donâ€™t know anything yet!â€
When Seacrest, 44, pressed on and said headlining the Super Bowl halftime show would be â€œa great thing to say â€˜yesâ€™ to in theory,â€ Lopez agreed.
â€œIn theory, yes â€¦ It would be,â€ she said. â€œItâ€™s something that weâ€™ve talked about for many years, and, you know, it would be nice. It would be nice. I canâ€™t say I wouldnâ€™t love it.â€
A day earlier, Lopez appeared on Hoda Kotbâ€™s SiriusXM show, where she similarly played coy about the halftime show rumors.
When Kotb, 55, asked, â€œAre you performing at the Super Bowl this year?â€ Lopez laughed and responded, â€œI donâ€™t know!â€
And to that, Kotb said, â€œThat was not a no!â€
When reached by PEOPLE, a rep for Lopez had no comment on the rumors.
Super Bowl LIV is set to take place on Feb. 2 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, which happens to be a city that Lopez and her fiancÃ© Alex Rodriguez have close ties to.
Along with having a residence in Miami, Lopez also recentlyÂ celebrated her 50th birthday on July 24 â€” which was declared â€œJennifer Lopez Dayâ€ by the city of Miami Beach â€” there with a blowout bash at Gloria and Emilio Estefanâ€™s sprawling estate on Star Island. The following weekend, Lopez brought her â€œItâ€™s My Partyâ€ tour to a close with three consecutive dates in the city.
Performing at the halftime show would follow a huge year for Lopez, who got engaged to Rodriguez, 44, in March and is currently generating Oscar buzz for her upcoming film, Hustlers.
During her appearance on Kotbâ€™s radio show, Lopez described hearing of the reviews after the filmâ€™s premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on Saturday.
â€œI was literally sitting in my bed yesterday and they were sending me all the reviews. I could not believe it,â€ Lopez said. â€œI was crying, me and my girlfriend of 20 years were sitting there and she was trying to film me. I was like, â€˜Oh my God.â€™â€
She continued, â€œYou work hard your whole life and you wonder if anybody notices in a sense, on that level, to be in that conversation. You have dreams when youâ€™re a little girl of being [at the Oscars], you know what I mean?â€
If Lopez is to be confirmed as Super Bowl LIVâ€™s halftime show headliner, she would follow in the footsteps of last yearâ€™s headliners, Maroon 5.
In August, it was announced that JAY-Z would be teaming up with the NFL to advise as a â€œlive music entertainment strategist.â€ Through the deal, the rapperâ€™s entertainment and sports company, Roc Nation, will consult the NFL on live events, including the Super Bowl halftime show.
JAY-Zâ€™s partnership with the NFL follows a particularly controversial year for the football organization, after fans and artists rallied to supportÂ Colin Kaepernick, the former San Francisco 49ers quarterbackÂ who started theÂ #TakeAKnee movementÂ to protest racial injustices.
â€œThe NFL has a great big platform, and it has to be all-inclusive,â€ JAY-Z, 49, told Â The New York Timesof agreeing to work with the NFL and its activism arm, Inspire Change. â€œThey were willing to do some things, to make some changes, that we can do some good.â€
