RIHANNA ON PERFORMING AT THE SUPER BOWL: ‘I JUST COULDN’T BE A SELLOUT’ – (10/10/2019)
Rihanna won’t be hitting the stage at the Super Bowl and the singer has explained why. In a new interview with Vogue, Rih revealed that she turned down the opportunity to perform at the halftime show in support of Colin Kaepernick. She said, “Absolutely. 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.”
Rihanna also spoke on President Trump, saying, “Put an Arab man with that same weapon in that same Walmart and there is no way that Trump would sit there and address it publicly as a mental health problem. The most mentally ill human being in America right now seems to be the president.”
The singer went on to address the mass shootings that have been taking place in the U.S. She said, “It is devastating. People are being murdered by war weapons that they legally purchase. This is just not normal. That should never, ever be normal. And the fact that it’s classified as something different because of the color of their skin? It’s a slap in the face. It’s completely racist.”
Rih has even put the pregnancy rumors to rest. When asked by Vogue’s editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, “Do you hope to have a baby soon?,” Rihanna replied, “I don’t think about stuff like that, but … I don’t know. God’s plan, but I look forward to all of the pregnancy rumors after this interview.”

Turner took to Instagram and shared a filtered shot of herself with enhanced rosy cheeks and enlarged lips. The 23-year-old said: “Today I just wanted to promote this new powdered stuff that you put in your teeth, and basically it makes you sh*t your brains out and is totally really really bad for me to be promoting to young women and young people everywhere. But I don’t really give a f*ck because I’m getting paid money. Influencer life!”
This comes a month after Instagram rolled out stricter rules regarding weight loss products or cosmetic procedures. Under the new rules, if a post promotes something with a price tag affixed to it, viewers younger than 18 would be prohibited from viewing the post. They are also banning content promising over-the-top “miraculous” transformations.
Jameela Jamil, who has been very critical, helped Instagram craft the new policy.
