Rihanna turned down an invitation to perform at the Super Bowl earlier this year to show solidarity with Colin Kaepernick. Maroon 5 performed instead of Rihanna.
\"I couldn\'t dare do that,\" Rihanna told the magazine in August. \"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.\"
Kaepernick has not played in the NFL since 2016.
