Rihanna is ‘ready to collaborate with Colin Kaepernick’ after apparently turning down the Super Bowl LIII halftime show in support of the NFL star, Metro reports.
The 30-year-old singer was reportedly asked to take the gig in February but turned it down because she disagrees with the NFL’s decision to fine players who kneel while the National Anthem is playing.
Colin, the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, began the protest in 2016 when he started to kneel during the National Anthem to highlight racial inequality.
Rihanna is now said to be taking things one step further to work with the athlete on making a positive change in ‘a fun and powerful way’ all in the name of social justice reform; our sources believe that this collaboration has something to do with one of her music videos.
Sources close to the situation have exclusively told Metro.co.uk that the Wild Thoughts hitmaker and Colin are excited to push boundaries together.
The insider said: ‘Colin was overwhelmed when he found out Rihanna turned down the Super Bowl to stand with him in his protest against anti-black violence and injustices.
‘He’d heard a little while before the rest of the world did and since then they’ve been speaking regularly and have decided to work on something related to social justice reform. ‘They’re both leaders in their lanes and believe they have the power to inspire positive change in a fun and powerful way.’ Yes, RiRi! We stan a woke and creative Queen.
