Stars have been heading to Atlanta, Georgia for some Super Bowl fun!


Celebrities have been heading to the southern city to take part in the events leading up to the big game and more. Ludacris, Ciara and Lil Jon were there to perform on Thursday’s (January 31) Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest. The Backstreet Boys and NeNe Leakes dropped by Jenny McCarthy’s spot at SiriusXM at Super Bowl LIII Radio Row on Friday (February 1). 50 Cent drummed up major FOMO, telling fans Atlanta is “lit.”


Sarah Michelle Gellar became a style inspo for power dressing, sharing a photo of her in a sharp suit backdropped by Atlanta City. Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Norman Reedus also hung out in ATL. Diddy, Future, Jamie Foxx, Shaq were also having a good time in the city. Kevin Heart seems to have taken a chopper ride down to the city before hanging out with Cardi B, Meek Mill and Michael Rubin, among others.


Nina Dobrev stunned at the red carpet of the NFL Honors in her red gown, and Vanessa Hudgens showed us how to rock purple eye shadow at the event. Camila Mendes and Charles Melton were likewise there. Paul Rudd, who happens to be a Chiefs fan, also attended the NFL Honors, and gave a shout out to Kansas City fans, “we’ll get them next year.”


Chanel Iman kicked off the Super Bowl weekend at a Hennessy event. Olivia Culpo was totally “Super Bowl ready.” Martina McBride even shared that she would be hanging out at the Mercedes Stadium on Sunday (February 3).


Kylie Jenner was there to support Travis Scott, who was performing at the halftime show alongside Maroon 5 and Outkast’s Big Boi. But noticeably not present were the rest of the KarJenner clan – at least, according to their Instagram Stories. Kim, Kourtney and Kendall shared IG stories showing they were at Kanye West’s church service.


Kim later posted a candid selfie of herself in the car, with Kanye catching some Zs in the background, writing, “SAME.” Based on their Instagram stories and the video that Kendall shared, it looks like Kanye had a busy morning with a performance of his own – with a group of singers at the church service they attended. Even Kim and Ye’s daughter North busted out some moves and grabbed the mic at one point.


The NFL has received criticism on the league’s stance on Colin Kaepernick and others kneeling during the national anthem as their form of peacefully protesting against racial inequality and police brutality and other celebs showed support for Colin Kaepernick, and even got the hashtag #ImWithKap trending over he weekend.


Director Ava Du Verney took to Twitter to share her views: “I will not be a spectator, viewer or supporter of the #SuperBowl today in protest of the @NFL’s racist treatment of @Kaepernick7 and its ongoing disregard for the health + well-being of all its players. To watch the game is to compromise my beliefs. It’s not worth it. #ImWithKap.”


Common also went on Twitter to share a quote from Dr. Angela Davis, “’I’m no longer accepting the things I cannot change. I’m changing the things I cannot accept.’” And also shared photos of him and Dr. Angela, with the latter sporting an “IMWITHKAP” jersey.


Stephen Curry shared a photo of him in an “IMWITHKAP” hoodie cuddling his baby.


Nick Cannon urged fans to donate to Colin’s Know Your Rights Camp, writing, “#ImWithKap #7Challenge! I am donating $7 to Colin’s Know Your Rights Camp. The number 7 symbolizes Kap’s jersey number. I challenge you to donate $7 to @YourRightsCamp and nominate 7 others to do the same.”


Janelle Monae, Eric Jensen, Jodie Turner-Smith, Chris Lu and Charles M. Blow likewise shared their support for Colin.
