Looks like Rihanna is work, work, work, work, workin’ her way to the Super Bowl.

The singer seemingly confirmed she’s headlining the 2023 Super Bowl halftime show in Glendale, Ariz., by posting a photo of herself holding a football via her Instagram feed on Sunday.

The caption-less image was posted just hours after TMZ reported that Rihanna was in talks to headline next year’s national championship game.

Additionally, Roc Nation – who produces the halftime show – and the National Football League both tweeted the same image, writing, “Let’s GO” with the hashtag “SBLVII.”

Reps for the NFL and Roc Nation did not immediately respond to Page Six’s requests for comment.

Rihanna, 34, was previously approached to perform the halftime show for Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta.

However, she turned it down at the time amid controversy surrounding the NFL’s treatment of Colin Kaepernick. The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback was both praised and criticized for taking a knee during the national anthem in protest of police brutality and social injustice.

“I couldn’t dare do that. For what? Who gains from that? Not my people. I just couldn’t be a sellout. I couldn’t be an enabler,” Rihanna told Vogue in October 2019.

“There’s things within that organization that I do not agree with at all, and I was not about to go and be of service to them in any way.”


“I just couldn’t be a sellout,” Rihanna previously said, of why she turned down the halftime show years ago.
