Rihanna turned down an opportunity to headline the halftime show at Super Bowl LIII in a show of support to Colin Kaepernick, the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback who has been exiled from the NFL following his anthem protests.

The news was first reported by Us Weekly that the Anti singer was offered the February 2019 halftime show, which will now feature Maroon 5 and special guests. A source close to Rihanna confirmed to Rolling Stone that the singer declined due to her support of Kaepernick as well as the NFL’s controversial (and ultimately stalled) anthem policy.

Agent Orange and his former adult-entertainer wife are pissed about TI’s new video parody depicting Melania as a slut.

Melania Trump’s spokeswoman is asking people to boycott T.I. because of his promotional album video that shows a woman resembling the first lady stripping in the Oval Office.

“Dear 45, I ain’t Kanye,” T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris, wrote on Twitter with the video promo of his new album, “Dime Trap.”

Will anybody boycott TI’s music in support of the the Orange man in the White House? Or will this stunt simply bolster TI’s fame?
