Guess Who Else Turned Down The Super Bowl Halftime Show?

Looks like Colin Kaepernick's good will has come back in the form of support from one of music's heavies.

(AllHipHop Rumors) Well. Well. Well. Guess who decided not to do the Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show? RIHANNA! WE NOW have YET another reason to love RiRi. As you might imagine, I did not know this before it broke on Us Weekly. But, Rihanna is standing in solidarity with Kaepernick, who has an ongoing legal case against the NFL. He charges they colluded against him to essentially keep him out of the league. I have to give her credit for saying "No" just like mentor Jay-Z did last year. What I want to know is: Will Cardi B do the Super Bowl Halftime Show? Previously, the Bronx Bomber said she would NOT do the Super Bowl. At that time, people laughed. They were like, "This hood rat is talking as if she will EVER have a chance to EVER play the Super Bowl." Well, here we are and Cardi is one of the BIGGEST STARS ON THE PLANET! So, what will she do?

Here is what Us Weekly had to say about the whole Rihanna thingy:

> Rihannastands with Kap. The “Work” singer declined an offer to headline the Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show because she “supportsColin Kaepernick,” a source tells Us Weekly exclusively.

>

> “The NFL and Fox really wanted Rihanna to be next year’s performer in Atlanta,” the insider reveals. “They offered it to her, but she said no because of the kneeling controversy. She doesn’t agree with the NFL’s stance.”

>

> Kaepernick, who once admitted to having a crush on Rihanna, was thefirst NFL player to kneel during the national anthemin protest of police brutality and racial inequality. The former San Fransisco 49ers quarterback, 30, has not played since stirring controversy during the 2016 season. He filed a grievance against the league and its owners in November 2017, accusing them of colluding to keep him off the field.

> After Rihanna, 30, rebuffed the halftime offer, the NFL extended it to Maroon 5. Us Weekly broke the news in September that theAdam Levine-frontedpop-rock group gleefully accepted.
