Jermain Dupri is saying artists like Jay-Z and Rihanna, who’ve decided to boycott the Super Bowl, have it all wrong because he feels they missed out on an opportunity to promote their cause on the biggest stage.
Rihanna was asked to perform and she turned the opportunity down and Jay-Z told the NFL to kick rocks last year because both artists are standing with Colin Kaepernick. The Super Bowl will be held in Atlanta this year. Via TMZ, Jermain Dupril tells TMZ Sports he thinks the platform of the Super Bowl is more valuable than a boycott.
He also says, “Boycotts and marches dont seem like they work to me, I’m sorry. I think they should sen a message while they’re onstage, take advantage of your platform.”
Jermaine made his point loud and clear, he understad that is fine to NOT do the Super Bowl in protest as well, but making your point clear that will further covrstaion does more good than ignoring it.
“The more people speak on it, the mor ehey talk about it, then the more people feel like its soemthing they hav to adress. I feel like people ignore boycotts.”
