Rihanna Slams Super Bowl Rumors: “I Just Couldn’t Be A Sell-Out”

Published: Wednesday 9th Oct 2019 by Sam

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.

What are…

Your thoughts?

    Honestly, I like Rihanna but she’s not a performer I’d like to see on the super bowl anyway. I like her music and fashion but her performance ability is not strong and live singing isn’t her forte.

      This post isn’t about shedding light on her performing
      Capabilities or lack off. It’s about her standing for what she believes in and sticking to her guns.

      Unlike her so called ‘Boss’

  4. Clarkson October 9, 2019

    This is a show beyonce performed twice on.
    Beyonce fake woke

    • You tried October 9, 2019

      You forget how she got dragged when she came out performing Formation dressed like Black Panther party

  5. Tamar Her October 9, 2019

    The SHADE to the frauds that are Beyoncé and Jay Z using the BLM movements to make money and then flipping once they were offered a check by the NFL

    Glad Rihanna is calling that hypocrite and fraudulent couple OUT

    • Justme October 9, 2019

      She’s reaching your honor. Beyoncé has nothing to do with this

      • Jasmine The Real Princess October 9, 2019

        Beyoncé is ugly and fat. That’s reason enough to hate on her.

      • You tried October 9, 2019

        Damn Jasmine the resident internet troll is very vile and negative. That negative energy comes back I hope you know. It consumes you. Find the light

    • Winner October 9, 2019

      Right jasmine needs to get from behind the computer and get a life… cornball a s s

    • Oh na na October 9, 2019

      I agree actually

  6. XYZ October 9, 2019

    You gotta admit her courage. That woman has balls bigger than all of the self-proclaimed greatest and biggest men out there.

  7. Diabetes Unbothered October 9, 2019

    Bey said she doesn’t want to be a POP STAR because it has a time limit and instead an ICON. Certainly bey had a few artist in mind when she said that… Namely RihYAWNA.

    Rih Stans aren’t even as Patient as beys cuz they want More Mac Albums instead they get more Mac make up lol

    Time is ticking for rihsceduled too in terms of YOUTH she’s aging like a Lobster in Heat lol Bey and Rih look the same age now lol I thought rihbola would atleast reign supreme over bey in the youth department seeing that she doesn’t WORK

    Fun fact IASF is DIAMOND in Brazil selling 200k-500k… Rihsceduled still has no Diamond album or 200M+ grossing Tour like her peers.

    Cardi B is the new Rihanna whom has more competition now than ever, makes since rih would postpone her pending FLOP for as long as possible. Rih can’t afford a 4 year gap between albums.

    • Jay October 9, 2019

      NEWSFLASH! Bey is a Popstar! lol

      • Diabetes Unbothered October 9, 2019

        The Iconic Adele Approved Lemonade says Otherwise

      • ??? October 9, 2019

        lmaooo no, roach is a FLOP star, and a sellout one at that lmfaooooooo! keep seething pork chop while RiRi drags tf out of that sellout roach you stan lmfaooooooo #949yonce

    • FOH ! October 9, 2019

      She can’t take afford to take years off between albums? Umm… Fenty Beauty says hello… When you have a company worth damn near 1 billion why the f*** would you care about dropping an album? Even if it flopped she wouldn’t care anyways… Sit ya dumb ass down somewhere

    • SMH October 9, 2019

      Of course your fat ass is in here defending that puppet because Rihanna called her and her fraudulent ass out lol.

    • Oh na na October 9, 2019

      Unfortunately one can’t be an icon without constant hit music. Seems Bey has peaked. Her latest music is absolutely terrible and flopped. You can’t deny Rih is the icon of our times.

  8. High Price October 9, 2019

    Yes!!!! Speak on that sh!t RiRi!! Nothing but FACTS!

  9. Meme October 9, 2019

    And this is why I Stan. She embarrassed them years ago as well when they tried to milk her revenue from touring if they had her perform.

  10. Maxx October 9, 2019

    These Trolls up In here are ridiculous..who has that amount of time or energy? LMAO. Anyway Rihanna has kahunas! Good for you girl. Don’t let other people push you around just because they think they can..especially not to be a sellout & sell your soul for a few $$$ and notoriety. Rihanna is at least a real person of substance & instead poor Beyoncé will be miserable for the rest of her life because she is trying to portray a persona. She should have left dogface when she had a chance, now it will be really embarrassing after all of this relationship ‘enlightment’ they are trying to push up on us. They really need to quit it! Thanks RiRi for keeping it real & being of substance.

    • You tried October 9, 2019

      Bey is miserable? Lmao says who? You? Some faceless person behind a phone screen?

  11. Me October 9, 2019

    👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾Rihanna 🙏🏾 💪🏾👩🏽

  12. ??? October 9, 2019

    lmaoooo Rihanna is BOSS, not afraid of anything, unlike that flopped sellout roach that does anything her camel tells her to do lmfaooooo, thats why fat ass diabetes is here seething and writing essays making up numbers for miss #949 lmfaooooooooooooooooooooo

    • You tried October 9, 2019

      Btw the number you keep quoting is fake…if you actually did your research…I know your livelihood is hoping and praying Beyonce is reduced to an internet Troll such as yourself but it won’t happen no how much she “flops” you’ll never sell as much as all her albums under combined and you’ll never be as rich or so sought after

      • Minni October 9, 2019

        Lol b**** hush up and stop lying those numbers are NOT fake..you tried loool #flopce

  13. Claude Remains October 9, 2019

    Good for her! At least someone has moral integrity!!

    Anything to add Jay Z?

  14. Tyty October 9, 2019

    So what’s was honouring Shaun the fraud then? 😂😭 girl bye!!

  15. eric October 9, 2019

    Strong stance. I love it.

  16. Da’Veed October 10, 2019

    We need another pop star. I think we got spoiled. Jay-Z needs to find another singer ASAP. I think he is going to be the one to do so.

  17. Gerald P Matthews October 13, 2019

    I totally agree with her, having principles it way more important than bowing to something you disagree with for money.
