Report: Jay-Z turns down Super Bowl in support of Kaepernick

By Christina Palladino,

The Super Bowl is only a few months away and the halftime performer has still not been announced.

Around this time last year, Lady Gaga announced she would perform in the 2017 Super Bowl halftime show in Houston.

The year before that Beyonce took the Super Bowl halftime stage with a controversial performance with a nod to the Black Lives Matter movement.

Her husband, Jay-Z, has reportedly turned down an offer to be the main event at this year’s half time show at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. The Source magazine’s website first reported Jay-Z refused to participate because of the protests ignited by former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Other sites, like Sports Illustrated and Pro Football Talk, later picked the story up.
