WATCH: Eminem Defies NFL’s Orders And Takes A Knee During Super Bowl Performance

 

Two of the performers during the half time at America’s Super Bowl, Eminem and Dr Dre reportedly went against the League during their performance.

While Eminem took the knee, Colin Kaepernick’s style, Dr Dre sang ‘We still don’t trust the police’ from his 1999 hit song, ‘Still not loving the police.’

At one stage, he dropped to one knee in the style that has become symbolic of the Black Lives Matter movement, and championed by former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

 

According to Front Office Sports, the NFL had asked the artistes not to do both but they did.

Joining Eminem for the groundbreaking performance, which many have described as the greatest Super Bowl half-time show of all time, were Dr Dre, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, Mary J. Blige, and 50 Cent.

50 Cent actually appeared unannounced and hanging upside down by his feet, although that’s another story entirely.

The Super Bowl half-time show is no stranger to controversy, obviously.

In the break between halves at Super Bowl XXXVII, Justin Timberlake exposed Janet Jackson’s breast, then later on in 2012 MIA flipped her middle finger towards the audience during her performance alongside Madonna.

So, that’s potentially why the NFL wouldn’t want anything controversial to happen this year.

Of course, the cast of characters that they chose aren’t exactly shrinking violets when it comes to controversial antics either.

Still, it seemed to go off relatively smoothly and without a hitch, and fans have been absolutely made up with the performance.

One person said: “Best halftime show ever, it’s over”

Another said: “This halftime show is like when you put on your throwback playlist. Best halftime show in years.”

Eminem has yet to say anything about his action during the Super Bowl but fans have been praising both him and Dr Dre on social media.
