When Rihanna does not bless us with beautiful cool makeup collections or sultry underwear pieces, she is not Aking stands for what she believes in. According to US Weekly MUL NFL’s first choice was named Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show, but she beat it by Colin Kaepernick.

“NFL and CBS really wanted Rihanna to be next year’s practice in Atlanta,” a source revealed for US Weekly . “They offered it to her, but she said no because of the controversy of the knee fight. She does not agree with NFL’s position.”

Kaepernick has been persona non grata to NFL since he began to kneel under the national anthem in protest against police brutality and inequality in the race during the 2016 season. Athletes from different sports have protested, but the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback has not played since the controversy began. He has then entered a free agency and filed a complaint against the league and its owner in November 2017 and accused them of illegally holding him from the field. Remarkable celebrities like Beyoncé and Jane Fonda have publicly supported Kaepernick, and Rihanna is clearly on the list!

According to Entertainment Tonight another source revealed that Pink – who sang the national anthem to kick the Super Bowl LII back in February – was also approached to perform but continued because the negotiations took too long . The NFL continued to extend the chance to Maroon 5, as “happily accepted”. Cardi B is reportedly also in talks to join the band for the half-time show, but there are discussions about whether or not she will get a solo set.
