Kaepernick is a former starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers and led the team to a Super Bowl appearance in 2013 - the organisation's first in 19 years.

Which brings us, nervously, to Maroon 5.

It was thought that Maroon 5, who ended up headlining, reached out to more than a half-dozen stars to appear as featured guests but it because a poisoned chalice, with Variety branding it "music's least wanted gig".

Hostin didn't wait long before sharing her opinion about the game. The Fenty mogul reportedly turned down an offer to perform at the halftime show because of the Kaepernick controversy.

"I got to sacrifice a lot of money to perform", she said. She also responded to criticism she's received for playing other Super Bowl-related events.

She had pipes, she had power, and she was a bright beam of light that infused the show with energy for people across the internet where she of course did not go unnoticed. While the addition of the rap artists were appreciated, many people could not help but slam the Super Bowl for not including more Black acts, especially considering the Atlanta location. When Obama was around, I just feel like they were praying on the day when his eight years was over.
