Empire star, Taraji P. Henson unintentionally became one of the most talked-about celebrities to attend Super Bowl 50 when she referred to Coldplay as Maroon 5 during the halftime show.
“YAAAAAAASSSSSS!!!! #maroon5 is life to me!!! #superbowl50 #HappyCamper,” the she wrote on Instagram while sharing video of Coldplay’s performance at Levi’s Stadium on Feb. 7.
Fans were quick to call out Henson on social media, and she deleted the post. “Oooooooopppps. Lmao!” she later tweeted, but the gaffe still went viral.
Well, Maroon 5 did give a respond to her gaffe as frontman Adam Levine and his band took to Twitter to show the TV star that there are no hard feelings.
“Thanks for loving our performance from our seats at #SB50,” Maroon 5 tweeted from their official account at Henson. “We think we sounded pretty good!”
Well, Taraji may have to stay off drinking Kool Aids for a while as she blamed
her mix-up on drinking too much “Kool-Aid” while watching the game from inside one of the stadium’s luxury suites.
“So, I don’t know if you know how it goes down in the suites,” she said. “There are a lot of drinks in there — Kool-Aid, lemonade, iced tea. I mixed it all,” she explained to Entertainment Tonight.
