Is Rihanna performing at the Super Bowl 2023? NFL announces act for Apple Music Super Bowl Halftime Show at State Farm Stadium

Rihanna will be the center of attention at the Super Bowl halftime show in February.

The singer, who declined to appear on the 2019 Super Bowl halftime show in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick, will officiate the 2023 Super Bowl, the NFL announced Sunday along with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation and Apple Music.

Rihanna posted a picture on Instagram showing an outstretched arm holding an NFL football.

“Rihanna is a generational talent, a woman from humble beginnings who has exceeded expectations at every turn,” said Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter, whose Roc Nation is executive producer on the show, in a statement.

“A person who was born on the small island of Barbados and became one of the most prominent artists of all time. Self-made in business and entertainment.”

The Super Bowl takes place on February 12 at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

After years of sponsorship from Pepsi, the upcoming halftime show will be sponsored by Apple Music.

Rihanna previously said she turned down a similar opportunity for the 2019 Super Bowl, which was ultimately officiated by Maroon 5.

Back then, many artists supported Kaepernick, the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback whose protests over the 2016 national anthem sparked debate across football.

“I wouldn’t dare. For what?” Rihanna told Vogue in 2019. “Who benefits? Not my people. I just couldn’t be a sellout. I couldn’t be an enabler. There are things within this organization that I don’t agree with at all and I wasn’t willing to serve them in any way,” she said of the league.

With more than 250 million records sold worldwide, Rihanna is one of the best-selling artists of all time.

Her last album was Anti in 2016.
