She gets real about why she turned down a Super Bowl performance in the latest issue of Vogue:
I ask if it’s true that she turned down the Super Bowl halftime show in solidarity with Colin 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.”
I can't tell you how much I respect Rihanna for taking that position. So happy to see her stay true to what she believes in!
