Held in Inglewood, CA, it was filled with so many poppin’ moments that folks online are still talking about. From performances to commercials, you know the innanet shows no mercy. The halftime performance starring Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, Kendrick Lamar, and Eminem was what folks were waiting for all night and was a very significant moment.

Reports state NFL reps denied the league had any differences with Eminem before his performance. In a statement to the Post, representatives said that players have been taking knees since 2016 without sanctions, so musical talent wouldn’t be held to a different standard.
