Super Bowl LVII: Rihanna will perform at the 2023 halftime show



CNN

It must be the NFL on the brain: Pop icon and entrepreneur Rihanna will perform at next year’s Super Bowl LVII Halftime Show, the NFL announced Sunday.

The news comes after Rihanna and the NFL tweeted a photo of the musician’s hand holding a soccer ball on Sunday afternoon, sparking speculation that she would be the halftime performer.

In the NFL statement, Jay-Z, whose entertainment agency Roc Nation is one of the halftime show’s many executive producers, called Rihanna a “generational talent.”

“Rihanna is a generational talent, a woman of humble beginnings who exceeded expectations at every turn,” Jay-Z said in the statement. “A person born on the small island of Barbados who became one of the most prominent entertainers of all time. Self-taught in business and entertainment.

Rihanna, born Robyn Rihanna Fenty, has built a business empire on top of her successful music career. In 2021, Forbes announced that she had become a billionaire and the richest musician in the world, thanks to her Fenty Beauty makeup line and her Savage x Fenty lingerie line.

The singer joins a group of musical icons – including Prince, Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Madonna and Jennifer Lopez – who took the stage for the halftime show. Last year’s performance, featuring Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar, garnered five Emmy nominations and won three Emmys.

The 57th Super Bowl will take place on February 12, 2023 at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. It will be the first with Apple Music as a Halftime Show partner, according to the NFL’s announcement.

“We are thrilled to welcome Rihanna to the Apple Music Super Bowl Halftime Show stage,” NFL Chief Music Officer Seth Dudowsky said in the statement. “Rihanna is a one-of-a-kind artist who has been a cultural force throughout her career.”
