Rihanna Looks To Confirm She's Headlining The Super Bowl 2023 Halftime Show 1

Looks like Rihanna is work, work, work, work, on her way to the Super Bowl.

The singer has seemingly confirmed she’s heading the Super Bowl halftime show in Glendale, Arizona, by posting a photo of herself with a soccer ball to her Instagram feed on Sunday.

The captionless image was posted hours after TMZ reported that Rihanna was in talks to take the title of next year’s national championship game.

Representatives from the National Football League and Roc Nation, which produces the halftime show, did not immediately respond to Vidak For Congress’s request for comment.

Rihanna, 34, was previously approached to stage the halftime show for Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta.

However, she turned it down at the time amid controversy surrounding the NFL’s treatment of Colin Kaepernick. The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback was both praised and criticized for kneeling during the national anthem in protest of police brutality and social injustice.

“I wouldn’t dare. For what? Who will win? Not my people. I just couldn’t be a seller. I couldn’t be an enabler,” Rihanna told Vogue in October 2019.

“There are things within that organization that I completely disagree with, and I had no intention of serving them in any way.”

The show was eventually spearheaded by Adam Levine’s pop rock band, Maroon 5, with special guests Big Boi and Travis Scott.

As for Rihanna, her appearance will follow the star-studded 2022 lineup of Dr. Dre, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar, performing at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, for Super Bowl LVI.

Super Bowl LVI will take place on February 12, 2023 at State Farm Stadium.
