Who Is Performing At Super Bowl LVII?
In September 2022, it was announced that Rihanna would perform at the Super Bowl LVII halftime show. There’s a chance that her boyfriend, A$AP Rocky, also makes a small cameo. This comes just a few years after the NFL offered her the spot in 2018, but she turned it down due to the NFL’s treatment of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
She was quoted saying, “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.” She continued, “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.”
