Rihanna on Why the Super Bowl Halftime Is Not on Her Radar (Exclusive)

Rihanna has many projects she’s focused on, but performing at the Super Bowl is not one of them.

ET caught up with the singer-turned-designer at her Savage X Fenty show at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, on Tuesday, where she explained why headlining the upcoming Super Bowl LIV Halftime Show is not on her radar.

“Whatever I do is gonna be confident whether it’s the album, perfume, lingerie, makeup, or fashion,” she said after being asked when she will release an LP. “Y’all gonna have to wait. Navy, I’m so sorry.”

“CBS and the NFL reached out to Rihanna first, who after thinking about the offer, decided to pass due to the NFL and the situation regarding players kneeling,” the source told ET at the time, who added that the singer stood “with the players and Colin Kaepernick.”

“The offer and exposure would have been great for Rihanna as she’s planning a new album and tour but she stuck to what’s right in her eyes,” the source shared. Maroon 5 ended up being the show’s performer, with guests Travis Scott and Big Boi.
