The 34-year-old singer, Rihanna is one of the most influential artists of all time, who gained global stardom through her music. This year’s Super Bowl Halftime Show is more about her anticipated performance, rather than just a battle between the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles, for glory.
The singer has been working on this moment for months and in a recent press conference in Arizona, she shared more about her upcoming performance.
“We’ve been working on this performance for a while now, and today’s rehearsal is crucial to making sure everything is perfect for Sunday,” she said. “We’re putting in a lot of effort to ensure that the audience gets a memorable experience, and I can’t wait to share it with everyone.”
While the singer has worked extremely hard for this stage, it looks like fans are still stuck on the 2001 iconic Super Bowl performance by none other than Britney Spears!

Don't come for me but u have this gut feeling that Rihannas SuperBowl performance is gonna be her Britney Spears 2007 Vmas moment. I don't feel good about it. I'm nervous for her and I hope I get proven wrong.
