Rihanna is a real one. The Bajan Pop star was offered the Super Bowl Halftime performance by the NFL, but she passed because of her support of Colin Kaepernick.
Despite being a more than capable quarterback, Kaepernick has essentially been blackballed by the NFL. Rih Rih has taken note and is riding with cap.
“The NFL and CBS really wanted Rihanna to be next year’s performer in Atlanta,” a source told US Weekly exclusively. “They offered it to her, but she said no because of the kneeling controversy. She doesn’t agree with the NFL’s stance.”
Maroon 5 eventually ended up taking the gig with Cardi B rumored to be a special guest.
Standing by her principles may have lost Rihanna some fans, but we’re willing to bet it has gained her much more.
Also, Kap is still ready.
