More than two years after Kaepernick became the first NFL player to kneel during the national anthem, he remains a polarizing figure. I have to give her credit for saying "No" just like mentor Jay-Z did a year ago.

Kaepernick has remained a free agent since the end of the 2016 season.

Rihanna reportedly turned down a Super Bowl performance opportunity in support of Colin Kaepernick.

Yesterday it was reported that Rihanna said hell no to performing at the upcoming Superbowl halftime show as a way to show support to Colin Kaepernick and the kneeling controversy he went through with the NFL.

'The NFL and CBS really wanted Rihanna to be next year's performer in Atlanta, ' an insider told the celebrity publication. Alleging that the league's owners conspired to keep him off a roster due to his anthem protests. "She doesn't agree with the NFL's stance".

Now, Rihanna doesn't need the Super Bowl, and honestly, while she's a hitmaker, she also has zero f's to give and doesn't consider herself to be someone who needs anything or anyone. The reason for Rihanna is her style, her swag and the aura about her. It's just an investment in their careers - the exposure from doing a halftime show in front of that many people is priceless.

This is how we ended up with Maroon 5. The 2019 Super Bowl is scheduled for February 3 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
