Rihanna appears to be unapologetic about turning down the chance to be at the forefront of the football calendar.
The pop superstar reportedly declined an offer to headline the Super Bowl LIII halftime show in support of Colin Kaepernick, a source told Nicholas Hautman of US Weekly.
"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."
Maroon 5 was eventually listed as the headliner for Super Bowl LIII.
