Rihanna is hard at work on two new albums, but don’t expect her to perform any of it at the Super Bowl until the NFL makes things right with Colin Kaepernick.
In her new interview with Vogue, Rih was asked if she declined performing at the Super Bowl in recent years as an act of solidarity with Kaepernick.
“Absolutely,” she says. “I couldn’t dare do that. For what? Who gains from that? Not my people. I just couldn’t be a sellout. I couldn’t be an enabler. There’s things within that organization that I do not agree with at all, and I was not about to go and be of service to them in any way.”
It’s worth mentioning JAY-Z’s company, Roc Nation, signed a lucrative deal with the NFL to manage entertainment and help facilitate their social-justice initiative. Rihanna is signed with Roc Nation.
Jennifer Lopez and Shakira are both performing at the 2020 Super Bowl.
