Jay-Z Says He Was Not Protesting The National Anthem at the Super Bowl

According to Jay-Z, he and his wife Beyonce were not protesting the National Anthem when they stayed seated during Demi Lovato’s Super Bowl performance.

Jay-Z responded to the controversial moment when a professor at Columbia University asked him if he was trying to “convey a signal” by not standing. Jay-z’s response was “it actually wasn’t. Sorry.” He said they were laser-focused on Demi Lovato’s performance and were in “artist mode.”

Jay added, “I’m really just looking at the show. The mics start. Was it too low to start?” He went on to say he was concerned about the audio and all aspects of the show for a very good reason.

Jay-Z’s Roc Nation is now producing ALL of the entertainment at Super Bowls as part of the deal Jay struck with the NFL last year. 

Jay said there was no need for a “silent protest” — as some speculated they were doing — because we were “making the biggest loudest protest of all” by selecting such a diverse group of artists to perform at the game.
