Jermaine said, “Boycotts and marches don’t seem like they work to me, I’m sorry. I think they should send a message while they’re onstage, take advantage of your platform.”
He believes that Rihanna and other artists could do a better job with getting the message out. Rickey Smiley mentioned that if Rihanna decided to perform she could’ve just took a knee at the Super Bowl.
In other entertainment news, a venue is trying to make Travis Scott pay the bill for a fan that was left paralyzed after his performance. Gary With Da Tea spoke about how Travis didn’t have the proper insurance for the show at Terminal 5 and could be getting sued for a lot of money. Rickey gave insight to this story by sharing that it’s a promoters job to get insurance and that Travis was only obligated to show up to perform.
