Rihanna is thanking her lucky stars as she prepares to perform as the lead act at this year’s Super Bowl Halftime Show.
She told Entertainment Tonight, “Motherhood, the Oscars, the Super Bowl; I’m still pinching myself, honestly.” “I appreciate it. I appreciate it.”
“It feels like a lot’s happening all at once,” the 34-year-old Grammy winner and new mother said of the events leading up to her first public performance since 2017 and her Oscar nomination for the song “Lift Me” from the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever album.
However, Rihanna has been committed to winning the Super Bowl. The superstar, born in Barbados, spoke candidly about prepping for this weekend’s career-defining performance at a press conference on Thursday hosted by Apple Music, the official sponsor of the Super Bowl LVII Halftime Show.
“The day is now Sunday. I was so preoccupied with the Super Bowl that I lost track of the approaching birthday. I overlooked Valentine’s Day, “The Love on the Brain singer said Nadeska Alexis, an Apple Music host.
The second-best-selling female musician of all time faces problems, among others. She remarked on Thursday that she chooses which songs to perform.
“Choosing how to make the most of 13 minutes while celebrating was the most difficult aspect. This program will be just that. It will be a celebration of my repertoire in the most creative manner possible, “ridiculed Rihanna. “It’s challenging because you’re trying to squeeze 17 years of labor into 13 minutes. We will be able to live with losing some tunes, but I believe we did a good job limiting it.”
The carefully organized display occurs when the superstar’s life appears to be more than full.
She quickly realized that parenthood and business aspirations don’t always go hand in hand after giving birth to her 8-month-old kid with A$AP Rocky in May and releasing her first song in nearly seven years in October.
“However, something happens that makes you feel like you can take on the world after being a mother. The Super Bowl is one of the biggest stages in the world. Therefore everything is possible, “the vocalist for Diamonds remarked. “So, even if it was frightening, the challenge is thrilling, and I must take it this year. In terms of representation, it’s crucial. It’s crucial that my son understands that.”
On February 12 at 6:30 p.m. ET on FOX, Super Bowl LVII will be broadcast live from the State Farm Stadium in Arizona.
