Super Bowl LVII: Rihanna watches the halftime show


Rihanna will take center stage this Sunday at one of the most popular events of the year, the Super Bowl halftime show. The global superstar spoke on Thursday about what the creative process has been like so far.

In an interview with Apple Music, the businesswoman and musician said her setlist changed 39 times before the show.

“Every little change makes a difference, whether I want to, like, cut a guitar, mute something, add something, or just add a whole new song, or delete a whole song,” Rihanna told Apple Music in an interview that took place at the Phoenix Convention Center. “Every time I make a change, something has to be updated, and that’s the new version.”

Rihanna’s performance at Super Bowl LVII was highly anticipated, not only because of her fame, but also because it had been nearly seven years since she last performed on stage. She also hasn’t released an album since Anti in 2016.

In May last year, she welcomed her first child, with her rapper boyfriend A$AP Rocky. And in August 2021, Forbes announced that the beauty and fashion mogul had joined the billionaire club.

Like previous Super Bowl performers, Rihanna described the difficulty of performing a full set list of music in 13 minutes. She also talked about the importance of representation and how she plans to pay tribute to her Caribbean heritage.

“Representing immigrants, representing my country, Barbados, representing black women everywhere,” Rihanna said. “It’s very important, it’s important for people to see the possibilities. And it’s an honor to be here and it’s an honor to do it this year.”

Start of Super Bowl LVII between The Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles are scheduled for 3:30 p.m. at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
