Big Boi Says OutKast Couldn't Play The Super Bowl Because Of André 3000

Today on an ESPN radio show, Big Boi told the story of how OutKast was invited to perform at the Super Bowl (likely the 2004 Super Bowl, a.k.a. The One With Janet Jackson) -- and declined. Apparently, they had been asked to do "Hey Ya!" and "The Way You Move," the two biggest singles off Speakerboxxx/The Love Below, but were not given enough time to do the full versions of both songs, leading André to forcefully decline. Big Boi also jokes that he'd like to be asked to do it again, but given that a new OutKast album is... unlikely at best (and there are other pop stars to do the performance), it seems like a bit of wishful thinking. Let's sit around for the rest of the day and dream of what might have been. [via Pitchfork]
