Rihanna says she’s ‘nervous’ but ‘excited’ for the Super Bowl Halftime Show

Rihanna has said she is “nervous” but “excited” about headlining the 2023 Super Bowl Halftime Show.

Announced late last month, the upcoming performance will mark the pop star’s first live appearance since 2018. Rihanna’s eighth and most recent studio album, “Anti,” came out in 2016.

Earlier this week, TMZ asked Rihanna how she felt making her Super Bowl debut. “I’m nervous but excited,” she replied. When pressed on whether her partner A$AP Rocky might make a special guest appearance, the singer replied, “Maybe, girl.”

Super Bowl LVII will take place at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona on February 12, 2023. It will be the first year that Apple Music will serve as sponsor of the Halftime Show, replacing longtime NFL partner Pepsi.

Seth Dudowsky, music director for the NFL, said he was “thrilled” to welcome Rihanna as the headliner for the Halftime Show. “Rihanna is a once-in-a-generation artist who has been a cultural force throughout her career,” he said.

“We look forward to collaborating with Rihanna, Roc Nation and Apple Music to bring fans another historic Halftime Show performance.”

For his part, Roc Nation founder Jay-Z called Rihanna a “generational talent.”

“[Es] a woman of humble origins who always exceeded expectations,” explained the rapper. “A person born on the small island of Barbados who was one of the most significant artists in history. Self-made in business and entertainment.”

Dr. Dre headlined the 2022 Halftime Show with an all-star lineup including Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg and Mary J. Blige. Dre recently offered advice to Rihanna.

“Surround yourself with the right people, and have fun,” he said. “That’s basically it, making sure you have the right creative people around you. You might want to look at some of the people we use to make our show.”

On the other hand, Kanye West hinted that he might take part in Rihanna’s concert at Super Bowl 2023.
