Rihanna feels ‘nervous but excited’ to perform at Super Bowl halftime show

Rihanna is feeling “nervous” and “excited” about performing at the 2023 Super Bowl halftime show.

It was confirmed in late September that the Umbrella hitmaker will headline the Super Bowl LVII halftime show, which will take place at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona on February 12.

Rihanna was approached by a TMZ reporter while out shopping in Los Angeles on Tuesday and finally broke her silence when asked what she thought of her massive show.

“I’m nervous…but I’m excited,” she confessed as she walked to her car.

The reporter then asked for hints about special guests who might appear during the performance and suggested Rihanna’s boyfriend, rapper A$AP Rocky, but the singer declined to comment.

When the news broke on September 25, Rihanna confirmed it by sharing a photo of her hand holding a National Football League (NFL) soccer ball on social media without a caption.

The singer previously rejected an offer to perform on the Halftime Show in 2019 to show solidarity with quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who was widely believed to be blacklisted for taking the knee during the national anthem in the early matches to protest against police brutality.

The 2023 show marks Rihanna’s musical comeback and suggests she’s gearing up to release her long-awaited sequel to her latest album, 2016’s Anti.

During her hiatus from the music industry, the Barbadian singer focused on her business pursuits, including her Fenty Beauty line, the Savage X Fenty lingerie brand, and the Fenty Skin collection.
