Cardi B speaks about her decision of not performing at Super Bowl halftime
Cardi B has turned down the opportunity of performing at Super Bowl halftime. Travis Scott, Big Boi and Maroon 5 were among the top celebs who performed at the stage on Sunday, and it was only Cardi who gave a thumbs down to this super chance. In a recent interview with the Associated Press, she admits that she had mixed feelings about this decision because of the money involved in it.
"My husband, he loves football,” “His kids play football. It’s really hard for him. He really wants to go to the Super Bowl, but he can’t go to the Super Bowl, because he’s got to stand for something [...] You have to sacrifice that. I got to sacrifice a lot of money to perform. But there’s a man who sacrificed his job for us, so we got to stand behind him.”
She felt it was necessary to stand behind Colin Kaepernick because this was all about kneeling in honour of his community. But despite this big decision, she has still been able to collect a huge amount by grabbing various other opportunities like making special appearances on a plethora of events.
“I hear people saying like ‘Oh, y’all are saying all this stuff about the Super Bowl, but you’re doing all these parties,’” And it’s like, well, if the NFL could benefit off from us, then I’m going to benefit off y’all. Y’all make the most money off our people. Why am I not going to take advantage of y’all and take money from y’all too? Because of y’all, we are getting these parties. OK, thank you.” She added later.
This is all about how Cardi dealt with the Super Bowl performance and the mess created post the decision announcement. For deeper insights into this story and more information, remain in touch with us at Flow Online.
