Rihanna Will Headline The 2023 Super Bowl Halftime Show

Rihanna Will Headline The 2023 Super Bowl Halftime Show.

The NFL announced on Sunday that Rihanna would perform as the halftime show's main act in 2023.

The singer, whose followers have been pleading with her for a new album for years, had earlier uploaded a mysterious Instagram picture of a hand holding a football.

The news that Rihanna was in discussions with the NFL to sing at the Super Bowl in 2019 was originally published by TMZ earlier in the day.

When asked to perform at the 2019 Super Bowl halftime show, Rihanna declined out of solidarity with Colin Kaepernick, the NFL quarterback who endured harsh criticism for taking a knee during the national anthem to denounce police violence against Black people. According to Kaepernick, his protest caused the league to suspend him.

"I would never dare attempt it. what reason? What does that benefit? Not my folks. I was unable to be a sellout. I couldn't be a facilitator, "In 2019, Rihanna talked to Vogue. I was not about to go and serve that group in any manner because there are things there with which I completely disagree.

Although Kaepernick hasn't participated in an NFL game since 2016, he had earlier this year as a free agent tryout with the Las Vegas Raiders.

The halftime concert will be Rihanna's first significant appearance since she has sung at the Grammy Awards in 2018. Since 2016's Anti, she has not put out a new album, concentrating instead on her Fenty cosmetics and intimate brands. She also gave birth to a kid.

Her Super Bowl participation excited her fans, who believed that new music from her may (finally??) be on the way.

The Arizona Cardinals State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, will host the 57th NFL championship game on February 12. The halftime show is officially referred to as the Apple Music Super Bowl Halftime Show because Apple Music is the halftime show's initial sponsor.

Millions of fans have watched the sports and pop culture event throughout the years' thanks to legendary appearances by the biggest musical acts, like Beyoncรฉ, Lady Gaga, J.Lo, Shakira, Prince, and Bruno Mars. The 2022 occasion included Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, Kendrick Lamar, and surprise guest 50 Cent in what was basically a millennial therapy sesh.

It's too early to predict which teams will dominate the sporting portion of the annual event, for those of you who only watch the halftime show at the Super Bowl. Tom Brady is still on the field, and he is still a very talented football player (remember when he pretended to be retired?). Aaron Rodgers is also, even if we don't want to bring him up anymore.

In the most recent Super Bowl, the Los Angeles Rams defeated the Cincinnati Bengals 23-20 after a thrilling contest in which both teams briefly held the lead.
