It's no secret that Rihanna isn't shy when it comes to standing firm in her beliefs. In an interview with Vogue, the Anti artist discussed topics from her forthcoming album to politics to the National Football League (NFL). On the latter subject, Rihanna openly shared why she opted out of performing at the Super Bowl Halftime Show.
Citing her unwavering support of Colin Kaepernick, the 31-year-old business mogul said her discrepancy with how the league operates was a factor in her decision to stay off the turf. "I couldn't dare do that," she began. "For what? Who gains from that? Not my people. I just couldn't be a sellout. I couldn't be an enabler. 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."

Drake’s father Dennis Graham was a recent guest on Nick Cannon’s Power 106 show, Close Conversations. During their discussion, Graham claimed the 6 God embellished his lyrics about his father to sell records.
“I have always been with Drake,” Graham said roughly five minutes into the interview. “I said, ‘Drake why are you saying all of this different stuff about me, man? This is not cool.’ And he goes ‘Dad, it sells records.'”
He added, “I exposed him to every aspect of life. I never hid anything from him … I showed him this side of life. I showed him that side of life.”
Drake took to his Instagram Stories to respond to Graham’s allegations, explaining everything he wrote about his sometimes strained relationship with his father was factual.
“Woke up today so hurt man,” he wrote. “My father will say anything to anyone that’s willing to listen to him"

Oscar-winning actor Robert De Niro has been accused of gender discrimination and fostering an abusive working environment for women in a $12 million lawsuit filed by an ex-employee, Graham Chase Robinson. Among other things, De Niro purportedly used sexist language, calling female employees “c—s” and “b*tches,” and referred to Robinson, who was his executive assistant, as his “office wife.”
“Robert De Niro is someone who has clung to old mores,” the lawsuit reads. “He does not accept the idea that men should treat women as equals. He does not care that gender discrimination in the workplace violates the law. Ms. Robinson is a casualty of this attitude.”
De Niro’s company filed a $6 million suit against Robinson in August, accusing her of embezzling money and binge-watching Netflix while on the job. That suit went viral with its claim that Robinson spent a four-day period in January watching 55 episodes of “Friends.”
The latest round of explosive claims hit as De Niro is appearing in two major film releases — “Joker,” a comic-book adaptation that opens on Friday, and “The Irishman,” a gangster epic that is considered to be an Oscar frontrunner. De Niro’s company, Canal Productions, is also named in the lawsuit.
In her suit, Robinson says she was underpaid compared to male colleagues and given “female duties like housework.” De Niro allegedly joked to Robinson about his Viagra prescription, asked her to imagine him on the toilet and suggested she could get pregnant using sperm from a married male co-worker.
Robinson goes on to say that in April, she submitted her resignation and had her attorney tell De Niro’s team that she was contemplating a lawsuit that would address De Niro’s gender discrimination and wage violations.
“In response, De Niro took a page out of the Bill O’Reilly playbook,” the suit reads. “Before Ms. Robinson could sue, De Niro retaliated.”
Robinson says her former employee’s lawsuit was “replete with ‘clickbait’ allegations that falsely characterize Ms. Robinson as a loafer, a thief and a miscreant. Now, when her name is Googled, these allegations pop up on the screen. The results have been devastating to Ms. Robinson. Her reputation and her career have been destroyed.”
