"He mentioned that Jennifer was also involved, and I feel that it's going to be great because she also represents a really important part of the Latino community who lives in the U.S., and who has been born and raised in the U.S. And I think in a way, I feel that I'm representing another part of the Latin world, which is all those people around the globe who almost barely speak English."

The former quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers, now without a club, had launched in 2017 a boycott of the American anthem, in protest against police violence against blacks. This led him to be heavily attacked by Donald Trump, for whom those who followed his movement insulted the nation and had to be fired. As a direct result of this affair, the Super Bowl show, usually so attractive and coveted by music stars, was abandoned last year, as Rihanna, Pink or Cardi B . So much so that it is the pop group Maroon 5, accompanied by rappers Travis Scott and Big Boi, who tried to ensure the show, without meeting a great success. In August, the NFL partnered with rap star and businessman Jay-Z, a keen supporter of Kaepernick, described as an action for social justice. The artist, accused by some of privileging money and betraying the former 49er, said that it would allow the league to go from protest to action.
