A growing chorus of celebrities is urging Travis Scott to pull out of the Super Bowl halftime show in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick’s protest of police brutality and against the NFL’s policy of making athletes stand during the national anthem.
Scott will perform on Feb. 3 during Super Bowl 53 at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium with Adam Levine’s band, Maroon 5, sources told Variety. Scott and his management declined to confirm this. Three more guests will be joining the lineup at the biggest sports event of the year, but they are as yet unnamed.
Listen to GHOGH with Jamarlin Martin | Episode 39: Tunde Ogunlana
Jamarlin talks to family wealth advisor Tunde Ogunlana, CEO of Axial Family Advisors, about estate planning and Snoop Dogg’s comment that he doesn’t need a will (“I don’t give a f— when I’m dead. What am I gonna give a f— about?”). They also discuss the growing college debt bubble, whether more free tuition will help solve the problem, and why MBAs are like the bachelor’s degrees of 30 years ago.
