Controversy has surrounded the halftime show since NFL player Colin Kaepernick said he would not stand for the national anthem in protest of racial discrimination against people who are African-American in the United States two years ago. Some musicians reconsidered performing at the Super Bowl as a result, and Rihanna and Jay-Z were among the stars who reportedly said no to performing at halftime show.
Maroon 5 and Travis Scott had been rumored to headline the halftime show.
