Rihanna reveals her second pregnancy in her musical comeback at the Super Bowl

The singer revived her greatest hits on the stage made up of flying catwalks

After seven years away from the stage, Rihanna returned this Sunday through the front door with a concert at the Super Bowl where, in addition to reviewing her greatest hits, she surprised her followers by revealing her second pregnancy.

The Barbadian singer started her show at the State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona (USA) from a raised platform where she gently touched her belly, a gesture with which she blew up social media with rumors about a possible pregnancy.

A representative of the artist cleared up the doubts by confirming to the specialized media The Hollywood Reporter that Rihanna is expecting what will be her second child, after the one she had in May 2022 with rapper ASAP Rocky.

Just last Thursday, the singer explained that it was precisely motherhood that gave her the strength to accept the challenge of being the guest star at halftime of the NFL final, a show even more popular than the game itself.

“When you become a mother, something happens that you feel like you can do anything,” she said at a press conference where she was sitting and it was not possible to see that she was pregnant again. In addition to the announcement of the pregnancy, the performance in the Super Bowl that pitted the Philadelphia Eagles against the Kansas City Chiefs marked the return to the stage of this pop star after seven years dedicated to her makeup company.

Dressed in an intense red jumpsuit and accompanied by dozens of dancers in white, the singer revived her greatest hits on a spectacular stage made up of flying catwalks.

Rihanna brought pop music back to the Super Bowl halftime, taking over from rappers Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar, who guest-starred last year.

The one from Barbados, which unlike previous editions did not have any surprise guests, made the audience dance with authentic classics such as “Bitch Better Have My Money”, “We Found Love” and “Work”, which she performed while walking down the street. the central catwalk of the stage.

And “Umbrella” and “Diamonds” were reserved for the final fireworks as he rose again on a flying catwalk where he said goodbye to the public with a fireworks display.

Among the celebrities who enjoyed the concert from the stadium stands were Bradley Cooper, Paul McCartney, LeBron James, Jason Derulo, Billie Eilish and Adele.

Especially viral was the presence of the model Cara Delevingne, who wore a T-shirt with the message “Rihanna’s concert is interrupted by a football game”.

The Weeknd (2021), Jennifer Lopez and Shakira (2020), Maroon 5 (2019), Justin Timberlake (2018), Lady Gaga (2017), Coldplay (2016), Katy Perry (2015), Bruno Mars (2014) and Beyoncé (2013) round out the recent list of Super Bowl performances.

Led by quarterback Patrick Mahomes, this season’s MVP and who seems to have recovered from his ankle problems, the Chiefs are playing their third Super Bowl in four years and will try to repeat the success of 2020, when they took the ring.

For their part, the Eagles of young quarterback Jalen Hurts seek the second NFL title for the Philadelphia franchise after the 2018 triumph with which they inaugurated their record.
