Rihanna has reportedly turned down the opportunity to perform at the Superbowl Half-Time show to show her solidarity with former NFL star and 49ers Quarterback Colin Kaepernick, US media reports.

She allegedly is in total disagreement with the NFL's methods, such as their stalled divisive policy regarding the national anthem.

Kaepernick gained infamy after choosing to kneel during the US national anthem last year, and became the first of numerous NFL stars to protest race inequality and police brutality in America, and is now thr face of Nike's controversial ad campaign.

He has not played in the NFL since early 2017 and is now embroiled in a lawsuit with the organisation- claiming team owners have shunned him for his activism. He has claimed that his political stances have resulted in his total ostracisation, despite race relations in the US currently being far from ideal.

The US media is claiming that pop superstar, fashion icon and general Badass Female Rihanna was the first choice for the half-time show, which the likes of Lady Gaga, Prince, Beyoncé and Michael Jackson have headlined.

"CBS and the NFL reached out to Rihanna first, who after thinking about the offer, decided to pass due to the NFL and the situation regarding players kneeling."

Judging by the reactions on Twitter, fans are standing by her side in her decision to protest the NFL’s methods, though many are divided in their opinions.

Her fans continue to stan, and appear to understand the global superstar's reasons.

Maroon 5 have since been chosen as Plan B for the show, which takes place in Atlanta next year.

Cardi B is apparently the favourite to be their guest star, and there are also claims stating that Pink turned the chance down when talks dragged on for too long.

Kween Rih has spoken.




Three weeks after welcoming her first child into the world and Behati Prinsloo is ready to venture out.

Yes, the Victoria's Secret model took to Instagram today to share a snap of her casual look as she went to meet friends for dinner saying it's been a tough few weeks.

"After 3 weeks of breastfeeding every 3 hours, no sleep and nursing my nipples back to life, I left the house to see my girls for dinner," Behati said to her 4.3 million followers.

But it's not all been bad as the new mum shared how much she is loving motherhood.

"Life is so beautiful, can't believe how lucky I got."

Behati has been very open throughout her pregnancy sharing pictures of her bump along the way so let's hope we get to see a little more of little Dusty Rose over the coming weeks.


Maroon 5's Sugar music video was a huge hit with fans everywhere.

The video, in which the band crashed real life couple’s weddings with surprise performances pretty much melted hearts everywhere.

It also impressed NBC so much that the US network is turning it into a television series. 

The David Dobkin-directed video, which rounded up almost a billion YouTube views, featured the group surprising brides with a serenade at their weddings.

The director will stay on board to direct NBC's Untitled Adam Levine Show spin-off, with Adam stepping in as a producer. 

Each potential episode is going to feature a different celebrity surprising a fan at a significant life event.

Where do we sign up? Surely Beyoncé should be on hand the next time we successfully visit the ATM and see that coveted comma in our bank account?

Or maybe Ed Sheeran could be there to serenade us the next time we make it through our morning commute successfully before we’ve even had our first cup of coffee.

NBC described the series, saying:

"A couple about to get married suddenly discovers that a world famous recording artist is leading the house band. An Emmy Award-winning actor becomes an unexpected guest of a bachelorette party. 

Working with a team of improv experts who create the element of surprise, these stars give their fans a moment together they will never forget and turn their already special event into something extraordinary."

Adam currently works with NBC as a coach on The Voice and is also developing a song writing competition for the same network. He is also responsible for breaking the heart of this poor child with her marriage to a Victoria’s Secret model.


There's playing with your food (which obviously your mammy told you to never do), and then there's turning it into something great – a skill one New Yorker has definitely mastered.

Jessie Bearden is a 23-year-old Instagram artist who uses everyday seasonings, sauces and snacks to create incredible portraits of her favourite famous faces. 

What in particular recently caught our eye? A portrait of Caitlyn Jenner, 65, made using Wheaties – the same cereal for which the then Bruce Jenner did promotional work for in the aftermath of the 1976 Olympics.

Below, SHEmazing! takes a tour of the best that Jessie has to offer online. Make sure to look at her Instagram account too.

Maroon 5 have some explaining to do after their recent Twitter mishap.

The group were due to play two dates in China this September, and over the weekend it was announced the gigs would no longer be going ahead. The rumoured reason? A tweet posted by Maroon 5 keyboardist Jesse Carmichael about partying with the Dalai Lama.

The musician tweeted on July 6 to say he had "sang happy birthday to his holiness," something which didn't go down to well with the band's Chinese fans, due to the country's tumultuous relationship with the Dalai Lama.

The Tibetan Buddhist monk was born in China but has lived in exile in India for the last 56 years.

No official explanation has been given for the cancellation of the two concerts in Beijing and Shanghai, but  the BBC reports that the (now-deleted) tweet not only angered fans but the authorities too. The reaction to the concert's cancellation has been mixed on the Chinese social network Weibo, a Twitter/Facebook style site that is huge among Chinese young adults and teens.

"Musicians should stick to music and do their thing. Why bother with politics?" one commenter wrote, according to reports from China. "Does attending a friend's birthday party equal agreeing with his political views?" wrote another.

Maroon 5 are not the only musicians to have been the subject of strife when it came to performing in China. Oasis were apparently forced to cancel dates in China after Noel Gallagher gave his support to a Free Tibet concert in New York, while Linkin Park were also banned from the country after being photographed with the Dalai Lama in Los Angeles.

Let's hope no other concerts on the lads' tour are affected.



Sometimes when the time comes to meet our favourite celebrity, we can get a little bit overwhelmed.

Like this woman did…

A video of a fan jumping on stage at a Maroon 5 concert has been going viral today after the singer was actually left with an injury to his ear.

A Maroon 5 Instagram fanpage shared the video from a fan earlier and we have to say, it certainly looks quite scary.

The woman can seen rushing up to the singer as he performs on stage and grabbing him around the neck, reluctant to let go.

Immediately alarmed, Adam handled the situation very well and can be seen trying to calm the woman before putting his arm around her to lead her off stage.

The singer reportedly told the crowd shortly afterwards it was 'super terrifying' as he had his eyes closed and was lost in the moment up until the moment he was grabbed. 



Forget some lousy DJ, if you want great music at your wedding you need to get in the big guns!

Maroon 5 have just released the video for their new single Sugar, and they've channelled Vince Vaughan and Owen Wilson by crashing weddings all over America. 

The lads surprised couples across the country with impromptu performances during the wedding reception. And judging by the looks on everyone's faces, this was no staged or scripted ploy – it was the real deal.

The whole thing was overseen by none other than Wedding Crashers director David Dobkin, just to give some authenticity to the whole affair!

"It was an out of body experience," said the band's frontman Adam Levine. "I had no idea I would be affected by the overwhelming reactions we received from the couples and guests. Being able to create an unforgettable experience for several people was the highlight of it all."

Pity they didn't make it as far as Ireland – can you imagine the craic?!



Maroon’s 5’s new music video has gained a LOT of attention over the past few days – and it’s not hard to see why.

The video stars Adam Levine as a stalker preying on his real-life wife, Behati Prinsloo, complete with standing outside her home in the rain and chopping meat in a butcher’s…agh!

Not to mention writing around in blood with her…we wonder what bothered people?!

It’s really graphic and creepy and has now been slammed by The Rape, Abuse, Incest National Network in the US who say it is glorifying stalking.

The group says: “Maroon 5’s video for ‘Animals’ is a dangerous depiction of a stalker’s fantasy. And no one should ever confuse the criminal act of stalking with romance. The trivialisation of these serious crimes, like stalking, should have no place in the entertainment industry.”

The video has also been blasted in its depiction of sexual violence against women. 



Even though Adam Levine is set to marry his fiancé, Behati Prinsloo this July, it hasn’t stopped the Maroon 5 singer from getting in touch with some of his ex-girlfriends.

Reports have revealed that Adam has been reaching out to his previous girlfriends in order to make amends before he gets hitched this summer.

Adam has dated a long listed of supermodels from Angela Bellotte, Anne Vyalitsyna, Janine Habeck to Nina Agdal.

It doesn’t stop there, as Adam also dated the likes of Jessica Simpson and tennis player, Maria Sharapova.

The source said Adam wanted to apologise “…for how he treated them”.

Even though it sounds like the honourable thing to do, we wonder what Behati thinks about this?



Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo have finally made plans for their upcoming nuptials and probably broke more hearts in the process.

Sources have revealed that Adam is set to marry Behati in Cabo San Lucas in Mexico this summer.

The couple will then head to Behati’s home in South Africa to celebrate with those who couldn’t make the ceremony in Mexico.

Adam and Behati revealed their engagement last July after dating each other for a year.

Oh well, we will just look up some Maroon 5 songs to keep us happy.
