The Baddest Gal Rihanna is apparently taking a page out of Jay-z’s book; after reportedly turning down this years super bowl halftime performance in support of Colin Keapernick.
The Singer was reportedly the NFL’s first choice to headline the show. After giving the offer some thought, Rih Rih decided to pass in support of former San Francisco 49ers qaurterback Colin Keapernick, who started a silent protest against systematic oppression by kneeling during the National Anthem before each game.
A source tells Entertainment Tonight:
“CBS and the NFL reached out to Rihanna first, who after thinking about the offer, decided to pass due to the NFL and the situation regarding players kneeling.
The offer and exposure would have been great for Rihanna as she’s planning a new album and tour but she stuck to what’s right in her eyes”
As for who will be performing this year, we hear Maroon 5 has secured the spot and will reportedly bring out Cardi B.
Will you all be tuning in?
