Following the announcement that Rihanna would be headlining this year’s Super Bowl halftime show, fans and the press have been hungry for details about the singer’s upcoming performance. TMZ spoke with Rihanna briefly, and the artiste shared some of her feelings about the highly anticipated show.
The media outlet spoke with the singer after she had done some shopping at Bristol Farms on Tuesday in Los Angeles, California. When asked how she felt about her upcoming performance, Rihanna revealed that she was understandably nervous but also excited. Rihanna has not yet revealed who may be joining her on stage, and when asked for details, she remained tight-lipped.
Though she did not initially answer when asked if her partner, rapper A$AP Rocky, could potentially perform alongside her, when pressed, the Bajan singer said maybe. TMZ sources shared with the outlet that there is a possibility that Rihanna may perform solo, though she is reportedly considering nearly 50 guest performers. Rihanna has taken a break from music over the past few years, focusing primarily on her businesses: Fenty Beauty, a cosmetics brand, and Savage x Fenty, her lingerie company, both of which have been highly successful.
When Rihanna takes centerstage at the 57th staging of the National Football League’s (NFL) championship game on February 12, 2023, she will be following in the footsteps of greats such as Michael Jackson and Beyonce. Her performance will follow that of rappers Dr. Dre, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, and R&B singer Mary J. Blige, who gave a stellar performance at the 56th Super Bowl earlier this year, a performance lauded by many as one of the best in the show’s history.
