She’s one of the biggest names in music today. So why did Rihanna turn down one of the biggest music stages and audiences?
Nicholas Hautman of US Weekly reports that Rihanna turned down an opportunity to headline the Super Bowl Halftime Show as a show of support for free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
“The NFL and CBS really wanted Rihanna to be next year’s performer in Atlanta,” the source told Hautman. “They offered it to her, but she said no because of the kneeling controversy. She doesn’t agree with the NFL’s stance.”
