Rihanna (34) probably has the biggest performance of her life ahead of her! For about seven years, the singer has not entered the stage and has not gone on tour. Now, however, she has announced her long-awaited comeback and recently released a new song. At the Super Bowl, the “Umbrella” interpreter will then take the stage again in the halftime show! Now Rihanna chatted about the preparations for the big event.
The NFL finals will take place in Arizona next Sunday. Rihanna will perform at halftime in the Chiefs vs. Eagles game and is in the middle of preparing for it. Speaking to Apple Music, she revealed how nerve-wracking it is: “The physical challenge was definitely enormous. For many reasons of course – I haven’t done it in a while either!” Also, planning the show was pretty exciting because Rihanna only has a limited amount of time. “The setlist was the biggest challenge. That was the hardest part. Deciding how to maximize the 13 minutes but also have a party at the same time. You’re just trying to cram 17 years of work into 13 minutes,” she admitted.
Despite the many challenges, Rihanna feels absolutely ready to take on this mega show, which was watched by 103 million people worldwide last year. “It feels like now is just the right moment for it. When I got the call to do it this year, I was like, ‘Are you sure? I’m three months postpartum, should I be so important now Make decisions?’ As scary as it was because I haven’t been on stage in seven years, there’s something exciting about the challenge,” Rihanna said, being totally honest.
