In a video for “Hold up,” the controversial star – whom Obama once labeled a great “role model” for children – destroys businesses, smashes car windows and sets off explosions as kids cheer on in support.

The music star has previously been accused of using her songs, videos and performances as veiled encouragements of unlawful violence, with many asserting her latest super bowl half time show purposely portrayed police in a negative light.

Earlier this year, several law enforcement entities called on agencies across the country to boycott the star following release of the video for her song “Formation,” which some have called a “black power anthem and call to arms,” and its subsequent performance featuring militant Black Panthers at Super Bowl 50.


Review: It’s Coldplay, Starring Beyoncé, at Super Bowl Halftime Show


Everything that could be said about the choice of Coldplay to headline the halftime show at Super Bowl 50 was said by the band members themselves Sunday evening — not with their mouths, but with their outfits.

All around the stage at the center of the Levi’s Stadium field, there were bold colors: In the crowd, fans held up blue, orange, red and yellow cards that formed a sunburst. Violinists and cellists from Youth Orchestra L.A. were dressed in matching baby-blue-and-red Windbreakers, clutching instruments painted green and blue and purple and white. Dancers held up floral umbrellas. Even the stage was a kaleidoscope of pastel nature fantasies.

The members of Coldplay? They wore gray, slate blue, musky brown, dusty black. Visually, it made them the void at the center of a riot of exuberance. Such was the case musically as well: Coldplay was the center of the show but functioned more as a stagehand than an actual performer, making sure things were properly aligned so that the night’s true event could go off without a hitch.
