Maroon 5 lead singer Adam Levine revealed the thought process behind his band’s decision to headline the halftime show at this Sunday’s Super Bowl, a booking that has been the focus of controversy since it was announced.
Levine discussed the controversy over the NFL’s handling of Colin Kaepernick and national anthem protests over racial inequality and police brutality with “ET” Thursday in Atlanta.
