Who is performing at the 2023 Super Bowl Halftime Show?
Ooh na na, what’s her name? It’s Rihanna.
The superstar announced she was heading the halftime show Sept. 25 in typical iconic fashion: an image of her tattooed hand holding up a football.
Though she had only been in talks to sing at the show in the past, the 34-year-old noted that becoming a mom to her and boyfriend A$AP Rocky‘s baby boy last May had an impact on her decision to say yes to the gig.
“But when you become a mom,” she told Apple Music in a Feb. 9 interview, “there’s just something that just happens where you feel like you can take on the world, you can do anything and the Super Bowl is one of the biggest stages in the world.”
As for what’s on the setlist? The bad gal kept details wrapped, except for the run time.
“The setlist was the biggest challenge,” she shared. “That was the hardest, hardest part—deciding how to maximize thirteen minutes, but also celebrate. That’s what the show is going to be, it’s going to be a celebration of my catalog, in the best way we could have put it together.”
