Even after a five-year-long break from performing, Rihanna showed us she still knows how to put on a show at this year’s Super Bowl. Her halftime show performance featured a medley of her biggest hits and she used this special moment to announce she was pregnant with her second child.
Rihanna confirmed the pregnancy rumors as soon as she hit the stage in a red Loewe ensemble, which perfectly showed off her baby bump. “B—h Better Have My Money” served as the opener of her 13-minute show, which walked us through her entire catalog through 12 carefully curated songs.
The R&B superstar came up with 39 versions of the setlist and admitted this was the most challenging part of the whole ordeal. She told Apple Music’s Nadeska Alexis that she wanted the halftime show to be a celebration of her catalog and that she struggled to fit her entire career into 13 minutes.
She managed to do a pretty good job, and opted for songs we all know and love, from “Only Girl in the World” and “Rude Boy” to “Umbrella” and “Diamonds”, which she performed at the very end of her halftime show.
Super Bowl LVII returned to State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona on February 12, and the Kansas City Chiefs managed to beat the Philadelphia Eagles to win the trophy.
