Jay-Z and Beyonce Get WRECKED After What They Did During Super Bowl Anthem
As per the tradition, prior to the start of the Super Bowl on Sunday evening, a special guest sang the National Anthem. Demi Lovato was the one who performed the song this year and did a fantastic job.
There are always prop bets for the Super Bowl and oddly enough, the singing of the National Anthem was one of them. The bet was how long the song would last whether it would be over 2 minutes or over 2 minutes. The total time was 1 minute and 50 seconds, and that’s how long two high profile celebrities sat during the National Anthem to disrespect our country.
Music superstars Jay-Z and Beyonce both stayed in their seats during Demi Lovato’s performance of the National Anthem, as did their daughter Blue Ivy.
This is the pinnacle of disrespect and reflects a stupid narrative that was conceived by Colin Kaepernick.

After the song, DJ Khaled stopped by and spoke with Jay-Z, which was also seen in TMZ’s photos.
Jay-Z recently spoke to The New York Times about his partnership with the NFL, insisting that it was not made for economic gain, but to promote education surrounding social justice.
“As long as real people are being hurt and marginalized and losing family members, then yes, I can take a couple rounds of negative press,” he said of the backlash received for the partnership, which some say as a betrayal of Colin Kaepernick and his protests within the NFL.
“No one is saying he hasn’t been done wrong. He was done wrong,” Jay-Z said. “I would understand if it was three months ago. But it was three years ago and someone needs to say, ‘What do we do now?’ Because people are still dying.”
Jay-Z actually holds a partnership with the NFL which gives him a say in most NFL events, which includes the Super Bowl as well.
