Rihanna was back in the spotlight this weekend, having entertained during halftime at Super Bowl 57 in Glendale, Arizona on Sunday night.
The Bajan artiste hadn’t performed since the Grammy Awards in 2018, so the anticipation was thick ahead of her Super Bowl appearance. And she certainly lived up to the hype.
Rihanna, 34, dropped some of her biggest hits, including “Diamonds,” “Rude Boy,” and “We Found Love.” But it was the fact that she appeared to be pregnant that really got social media buzzing as she only recently gave birth to a baby boy.
As it turns out, the singer is indeed with child. A representative confirmed as much to The Hollywood Reporter after the halftime show.
Prior to her performance, Rihanna revealed that she wasn’t convinced she should take on the responsibility but decided to go through with it because she wanted her son to see her on such a stage.
I was like, ‘You sure? I’m three months postpartum. Should I be making major decisions like this right now? I might regret this.
When you become a mom, there’s something that just happens where you feel like you could take on the world — you can do anything. And the Super Bowl is one of the biggest stages in the world, so as scary as that was … there’s something exhilarating about the challenge of it all. It’s important for my son to see that.
The game itself was as entertaining as the halftime show but fans felt cheated at the end as it was somewhat decided by a holding call on Philadelphia Eagles cornerback James Bradberry, who got a hand on Kansas City Chiefs receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster on a late play.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS?
