Rihanna Says She’s Nervous About Her Super Bowl Halftime Performance
The Bad Gal discussed her eagerly awaited comeback.
By performing on stage at the 2023 Super Bowl Halftime Show, Rihanna will make her eagerly anticipated comeback to the music industry. After releasing her widely praised album Anti in 2016, the famed Bad Gal took a hiatus from music and moved on to launch the multimillion dollar beauty and lingerie brand Fenty. Along with her work, RiRi took some time to focus on her personal life, including welcoming a kid with A$AP Rocky back in May.
Last month, the 34-year old billionaire announced that she’d be performing at Super Bowl LVII by sharing a photo of her hand, showing off her infamous wrist tattoo while holding a football. The new mother hasn’t made any public comments regarding her choice to perform at the next championship game since the news. She finally spoke up on Tuesday (October 4) after TMZ caught up with the celebrity while she was out grocery shopping.
I’m nervous, but I’m excited,” Rihanna said when asked about her upcoming headlining concert, according to TMZ. Although the singer didn’t share much about who could be joining her on stage during the halftime show, she did respond “Maybe, girl” when asked if her son’s father, ASAP Rocky could be a surprise guest.
The icon of the charts is expected to make a triumphant stage comeback, and fans can’t wait. Even music moguls like Jay-Z and Dr. Dre praised Rihanna when it was revealed that she would perform as the halftime show’s headlining act in 2019. I love Rihanna so much, Dr. Dre admitted to Apple Music. “I just like her, what she does, how she moves, how she approaches art, the full nine. It’s wonderful. She has the chance to truly wow us,”
As Rih gets ready for her big comeback, her mentor Jay-Z, the founder of Roc Nation and a partner in the NFL, spoke highly of his protege’s career, describing her as “a generational talent and woman of humble beginnings who has outperformed expectations at every turn.”
