As reported, Rihanna covers the newest issue of US Vogue.
Beyond posing for stunning snaps and spilling on her new album(s), the superstar drew on the feature to set the record straight about those Super Bowl rumors.
For, it’s been long touted that Rih turned down an offer to headline the coveted Halftime Show due to the treatment of benched quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who hasn’t played in years since commencing his Black Lives Matter kneeling protest.
Prior to now, one of the most telling signs Ms. Fenty wasn’t down with organizers was her publicly liking an Instagram post criticising her boss Jay-Z for signing a mega deal with the NFL – for charity work and to co-produce the Halftime Show.
Now, she’s explicitly making her stance on the situation unequivocally clear.
See what we mean below…
Speaking on whether the Kaepernick situation impacted her decision, she told Vogue:
“Absolutely. 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.”
Well, that’s that.
