This NFL season, Rihanna will rock Arizona’s State Farm Stadium at the Super Bowl LVII Apple Music Halftime Show on February 12, 2023. Being one of the events with the highest audience each year, many are waiting to see if the singer will do the show alone or invite other artists.

The announcement came as a surprise to many Taylor Swift fans, who thought that various hints in the marketing were alluding to a possible performance by the country-turned-pop star.

Rihanna Reveals If ASAP Rocky Will Be At Super Bowl LVII Halftime Show

TMZ questioned the singer outside Bristol Farms in Los Angeles about the halftime show, to which RiRi replied that she was “nervous” but at the same time very “excited.” This will be the singer’s first performance since 2018 when she performed at the Grammy’s.

The outlet then questioned her about who could join her on the Halftime Show stage, but she did not provide any details. She was later asked about the possibility of her boyfriend A$AP Rocky, with whom she shares a son, coming onstage. Rihanna shrugged, finally saying, “maybe,” and then said bye to the reporter.

Previously, TMZ revealed that Rihanna is still considering whether to invite multiple artists onstage at the halftime show or go it alone. According to the outlet, RiRi is “reflecting on a list of 50 potential guest artists” for the show. The list is so long because of the number of collaborations Rihanna has done throughout her career. Some of the names on the list could include Sir Paul McCartney, Kanye West, Britney Spears, Coldplay, Calvin Harris, David Guetta, SZA, Bono, Jay-Z, Drake, and Nicki Minaj.

In 2019, Rihanna was asked to star in the half-time show but turned down the gig to stand in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick’s protest during the national anthem, which was linked to police brutality and racial inequality in the United States.

At the time, the singer told Vogue that she “absolutely” would turn down the show, saying, “I couldn’t dare do that. For what? Who gains from that? Not my people. I just couldn’t be a sellout. I couldn’t be an enabler. There are things within that organization that I do not agree with at all, and I was not about to go and be of service to them in any way.

Exactly what the NFL has done to make Rihanna more comfortable performing is not exactly clear.
