According to an Entertainment Tonight exclusive, Rihanna or Pink could have been the headliners at next year’s Super Bowl Halftime show.
So what happened? Things simply didn’t work out.
A source told ET, “Rihanna was the front-runner for next year’s super bowl halftime show,” the source continued to say, “CBS and the NFL reached out to Rihanna first, who after thinking about the offer, decided to pass due to the NFL and the situation regarding players kneeling.”
The source also claims that Rihanna, “stands with the players and Colin Kaepernick.” The exposure would have been awesome for Rihanna who is planning a new album and a tour.
Just before last year’s Super Bowl Pink did perform the National Anthem.
Rumours have been circulating that Maroon 5 will perform during next year’s Super Bowl halftime show. Reps for the NFL and Maroon 5 have not confirmed those reports.
