Super Bowl 2023: everything you need to know about the game
Rihanna put on a spectacular performance for the 2023 Super Bowl halftime show at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
The nine-time Grammy winner made her return to live music after a five-year hiatus at the US event, performing hits such as “Diamonds”, “Only Girl in the World” and “B*** *Better Have My Money”. She also sparked speculation that she might be pregnant again.
Country star Chris Stapleton opened the proceedings by performing the national anthem, which drew praise from fans online. Viewers were also wowed by actor Troy Kotsur’s sign language performance of the national anthem.
Other performances include Babyface singing “America The Beautiful” and Sheryl Lee Ralph giving her rendition of “Lift Every Voice and Sing”.
And it wouldn’t be the Super Bowl without brands vying for consumer attention with memorable, star-studded ads.
Some 100 million people are expected to attend the show in the United States alone.
Rihanna Sparks Speculation She’s Pregnant Again During Super Bowl Halftime
Rihanna sparked intense speculation among fans that she was pregnant with her second child during Super Bowl halftime.
On Sunday, Feb. 12, the “Diamonds” singer took the stage at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., to perform a medley of hits during the halftime show.
For the occasion, Rihanna wore a bright red zipped jumpsuit over a matching red bodysuit, with the singer rubbing her belly several times during the show. She and boyfriend A$AP Rocky welcomed their first child, a son, in May 2022.

Will Rihanna’s partner A$AP Rocky make an appearance?
Personally, I expect A$AP Rocky to go wild during Rihanna’s Super Bowl halftime show.
The couple supported each other in each other’s careers before they even got involved in a romantic relationship, while Rihanna appeared in A$APs’ music video for “DMB” in 2022.
Riri also appeared in A$AP’s video for her single “Fashion Killa” in 2013.
Check out a timeline of their relationship, from friends to soul mates!
