When it comes to the NFL, Rihanna says #ImWithKap.

US Weekly exclusively reports the international pop star-turned-make-up-mogul turned down the National Football League’s offer to perform during the Super Bowl LIII halftime show because she “supports Colin Kaepernick.” 

A source told the publication, “The NFL and CBS really wanted Rihanna to be next year’s performer in Atlanta. They offered it to her, but she said no because of the kneeling controversy. She doesn’t agree with the NFL’s stance.”

As many already now, Maroon 5 is now scheduled to hit the halftime show stage, but the decision to put them there came after Rihanna declined.

It’s rumored that Cardi B. will join Maroon 5 on stage since she’s featured on the group’s chart-topping single, “Girls Like You.”

“She is definitely being considered, but it’s obviously way too early to say for sure,” an “insider” said while another source said, “Pepsi, the NFL and Cardi are all interested in her performing more than just her ‘Girls Like You’ verse.”
