Rihanna has finally revealed what fans can expect from her next LP in a new interview with Vogue. "I like to look at it as a reggae-inspired or reggae-infused album," the RiRi says. "It's not gonna be typical of what you know as reggae. But you're going to feel the elements in all of the tracks." The 31-year-old also confirms in the interview that she turned down a chance to perform at the Super Bowl halftime show because of Colin Kaepernick. "[I] decided to pass due to the NFL and the situation regarding players kneeling," she explained. "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."
