Rihanna Confirms She Is Headlining the Super Bowl Halftime Show

There was loads of speak about who will probably be acting at the subsequent Super Bowl Halftime Show and on Sunday, September 25, TMZ reported that the NFL and Roc Nation have been negotiating with musical artist Rihanna to return on because the show’s headliner. Early Sunday afternoon, Rihanna posted a picture of her hand holding up a football, seemingly confirming the rumors.

A source told TMZ that there could be no less than two performers for the upcoming event, so Rihanna’s co-host could also be announced soon.

There had been rumors that Taylor Swift could be the upcoming headliner. Swift has had an ongoing cope with Coca-Cola, and the Halftime show has been sponsored by Pepsi. Until this yr, that’s, when Apple took over sponsorship, freeing the best way for a Swift performance. Nevertheless, Swift has reportedly refused to perform until she rerecords all six of the albums whose master recordings were bought after which sold for $300 million by talent manager Scooter Braun.

In 2019, Rihanna told Vogue in an interview that she had turned down a proposal to headline on the Super Bowl due to organization’s treatment of Colin Kaepernick. The quarterback began peacefully protesting for racial justice by kneeling in the course of the “National Anthem” at games in 2016.

“I couldn’t dare do this,” the wonder mogul and musical artist said. “For what? Who gains from that? Not my people. I just couldn’t be a sellout. I couldn’t be an enabler. There’s things inside that organization that I don’t agree with in any respect, and I used to be not about to go and be of service to them in any way.”

Kaepernick left the San Francisco 49ers in 2017, and subsequently settled a case against the league for ostracizing him from playing in retaliation for his activism.

Rihanna’s announcement has been met with wild enthusiasm by fans already; the artist has been teasing recent music for a while, and her last concert was in February of 2019. Her last album, ANTI, was released in 2016. The Halftime show could be a possibility to revisit her discography of hits and potentially reveal recent music, if fans are lucky
