Wendy Williams Isn't Here for Rihanna Suggesting Super Bowl Halftime Performers Are 'Sell-Outs'

The Barbadian singer recently revealed in an interview that she turned down the offer to headline the annual event because she couldn't be a 'sell-out' and an 'enabler.'

AceShowbiz - Wendy Williams has some words to say to Rihanna after she spoke out against headlining Super Bowl Halftime Show. In the Thursday, October 10 episode of her talk show, the TV personality let people know that she disagreed with the singer who turned down an offer to headline the annual show because it would make her a "sell-out."

She said during the "Hot Topics" segment of her show, "I don't think this is a sell-out for people who perform at halftime," though she admitted, "I think she has the right to feel the way she does." Noting the Barbadian singer's success in other ventures, Wendy went on saying, "She has enough money to feel that way... She makes good stuff outside of making music... I understand what she was saying."

Still, Wendy made it clear that she didn't think performing at the Super Bowl Halftime Show would make one musician a "sell-out."

Rih made the remarks during an interview with Vogue magazine. To support Colin Kaepernick who has been blacklisted by the NFL for kneeling during the National Anthem to protest against police brutality, the Fenty owner admitted she "couldn't dare do that [perform at the Super Bowl]." She added, "For what? Who gains from that? Not my people."

"I just couldn't be a sell-out. I couldn't be an enabler," the "Umbrella" hitmaker continued. "There's things within that organization that I do not agree with at all, and I was not about to go and be of service to them in any way."

For the upcoming Super Bowl at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida, Jennifer Lopez and Shakira have been tapped to headline the halftime show. Rumor has it, Pitbull is currently in talks to appear alongside the Latin divas during the performance.
