Beyonce and Jay-Z Sit During Super Bowl National Anthem
Video of Beyoncé and Jay-Z sitting while Demi Lovato sang the national anthem at last night's Super Bowl has surfaced.
The video, posted by TMZ, shows the celebrity couple sitting with daughter Blue Ivy at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, where the big game was played.
In the video, pretty much everyone around them is standing, even their bodyguard. Beyoncé appears to be enjoying the performance, though, as she is seen swaying from side to side.
Interestingly, Jay-Z was co-producer of the halftime show featuring Shakira and Jennifer Lopez. His Roc Nation company had entered a partnership with the NFL for events and social activism last year.
The hip hop artist immediately received backlash over that since he had become one of the biggest supporters of Colin Kapernick, who himself sparked controversy for kneeling during the national anthem to protest the killings of black people by officers.
Jay-Z's response was that he still supports protesting, kneeling and Kaepernick but that he's also interested in working with the league to make substantial changes.
Representatives for Jay-Z and Beyoncé have yet to return requests for comment.
