Cardi B has revealed she had ‘mixed feelings’ about declining to perform at the upcoming Super Bowl in support of ex-NFL player Colin Kaepernick.

The 26-year-old rapper had received an offer to perform with Maroon 5 at the Super Bowl, but struggled with the decision to turn down the lucrative opportunity.

The Grammy-nominated rapper told The Associated Press on Friday that she had ‘mixed feelings’ after she declined to take the stage at Super Bowl 53 in Atlanta.

She said it was a hard decision since her husband, rapper Offset, loves to watch football, but she felt obligated to ‘stand behind’ Kaepernick because he ‘stood up’ for minorities.

‘My husband, he loves football. His kids play football. It’s really hard for him. … He really wants to go to the Super Bowl, but he can’t go to the Super Bowl, because he’s got to stand for something,’ said Cardi B, who is nominated for five Grammys. She is competing for both album and record of the year.

‘You have to sacrifice that,’ she added. ‘I got to sacrifice a lot of money to perform. But there’s a man who sacrificed his job for us, so we got to stand behind him.’

Cardi also told ET on Friday that she would not be joining Maroon 5 for a performance of their hit song Girls Like You.
