Jay-Z Explains Why He & Beyonce Sat During Super Bowl National Anthem

Published

on

Jay-Z says he and Beyonce sitting through the “Star Spangled Banner” at the Super Bowl was absolutely NOT a protest of any sort … it was simply 2 moguls hard at work.

Jay was at Columbia University Tuesday and addressed the video TMZ Sports first posted Sunday … showing Jay, Bey and Blue Ivy seated as Demi Lovato belted out the National Anthem. A Columbia professor asked him if he remained seated to “convey a signal,” and Jay quickly replied, “It actually wasn’t. Sorry.”

He said Beyonce told him she was thinking what Demi must have been going through in the seconds before starting the Anthem, because, as Jay put it, Beyonce’s “performed at the Super Bowl before, and I haven’t.”

The rapper went on to allude to his role as a stakeholder in the big game’s musical portions, a role he assumed last August when his entertainment company Roc Nation entered a controversial partnership with the league that gave him a hand in developing the Super Bowl halftime show and other major performances at NFL games.

“So we get there, and we immediately jump into artist mode,” he said. “So I’m looking at the show. ‘Did our mic start? Was it too low to start?’ … ‘Is it too many speakers on the floor?’ … So the whole time we’re sitting there and we’re talking about the performance. And then right after that, Demi comes out, and we’re talking about how beautiful she looked and how she sound[ed], and what she’s going through in her life for her to be on the stage and we’re so proud of her.”

The hip-hop icon later pointed out the diverse array of talent he helped assemble for the big game, including Jennifer LopezShakira and other Latin music superstars — as well as the Roc Nation co-produced commercial featuring Botham Jean, the man murdered by Dallas police officer Amber Guyger in September 2018 — made a “silent protest” unnecessary.

“We were making the biggest, loudest protest of all,” he continued. “Given the context, I didn’t have to make a silent protest.”
