"I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color", Colin previously stated.

According to Us Weekly, the singer, actress, beauty mogul, ambassador, and self-made millionaire, Her Excellency Robyn Rihanna Fenty, was reportedly approached to headline the Super Bowl LIII halftime show. "She doesn't agree with the NFL's stance", the insider revealed.

Quarterback Kaepernick, 30, was the first player to kneel during the U.S. national anthem. That led to heated debates about free speech and protest within the world of sports, and Kaepernick went unsigned for the 2017 season, filing a grievance against the National Football League that remains unresolved. You probably guessed it - she "supports Colin Kaepernick", the source claims! In October of 2017, Kaepernick filed a collusion grievance against the NFL.

Rihanna is not the first artist to decline the Super Bowl. But, according to Us Weekly, Rihanna had a good reason.

Another outlet reports that Maroon 5 was actually the third choice to perform at Super Bowl LIII. It may not be "sacrificing everything" because her career is going incredibly well with or without the Super Bowl, but the Super Bowl halftime show is a unique opportunity. Next year's Super Bowl will take place in Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium on February 3, 2019.
