With the year coming to a close, one of the highly awaited events for 2023 would be the annual NFL Super Bowl halftime show.

It is a spectacle that has captured the attention of the world and the one tasked to showcase her performance will be Rihanna.

The 34-year-old artist will perform at the 2023 Super Bowl halftime show. In 2019, she was invited to do the same out of solidarity with former NFL player Colin Kaepernick.

The American singer posted an image on Instagram, one that showed her with outstretched arms holding an NFL football.

The 2023 Super Bowl will take place at the State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona on Feb. 12. It will be sponsored by Apple Inc. this time around, moving on from Pepsi, the Guardian reported.

With excitement building, one celebrity who had the chance to take the stage last year was Dr. Dre. Upon learning that Rihanna would be headlining the 2023 edition, he could not hide his excitement and admitted that she is a big fan of Rihanna.

“Let me tell you something, man. I actually just got the news that Rihanna’s going to do it, and I’m a super fan of Rihanna. I can’t wait to see what she’s going to do,“ the American rapper said.

The 57-year-old rapper also gave his advice to Rihanna.

“Put the right people around you, and have fun,” Dre said. “That’s basically what it is, making sure you have the right creative people around you. She might want to look into some of the people that we used to do our show.”

When asked about his performance, Dre admitted that he was extremely nervous. Joining him then were Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar, 50 Cent and Anderson .Paak.

“I don’t know if I’ve ever been that nervous before,” he said. “Not only that, I don’t know if I’ve ever looked more forward to a Monday morning. So it’s the preparation and making sure you have the right people around you. All of these people came through for me, and everybody was extremely enthusiastic about the show.”
