Similar to last year’s Super Bowl and its halftime show, this year’s show was arguably even more bombastic. Rhianna announced her pregnancy and proved that she doesn’t need the Super Bowl, the Super Bowl needs her. Rhianna’s performance transcended the sports world and took its viewers to a place far beyond sports. In her shining red getup, you never would have thought she hadn’t performed in nearly five years.
Rhianna’s performance was no-nonsense. She didn’t waste one second getting right to business with her hip-industrial dance moves on levitating platforms that flew high into the stadium sky. We’ve seen it before, but Rhianna took it to another level with her puffy red jumpsuit and background dancers dressed the same but in white contrast. Rhianna nearly blew us away with her performance, but it’s easy to miss some of the details when you’re enthralled by the performance. So we’ve got your back. Check out all the Super Bowl LVI details you missed right here.
The First Pregnant Woman To Perform At The Super Bowl
You’d never think Rhianna had a bud in the oven with the way she danced on stage at the Super Bowl. It turns out she’s pregnant with her second child from A$AP Rocky, making her the first pregnant woman to ever perform at the Super Bowl. During the Super Bowl, at the end of her halftime performance, she revealed this news to the crowd. It was a big surprise for mostly everyone, even her staff. She managed to keep it a secret the entire time. We’re not sure how she managed to hide her bump during rehearsal, but the star was sneaky. Talk about a mic drop (via Global News)!
