The Bad Gal is back and expecting a child.
The Philadelphia Eagles took on the Kansas City Chiefs at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona on Sunday, and Rihanna headlined the halftime performance. She sang a medley of her best songs, including “Bitch Better Have My Money,” “Diamonds,” and “Work.”
The 34-year-old artist announced she is expecting her second child with boyfriend A$AP Rocky by beginning her performance with a belly rub à la Beyoncé (and a noticeable bulge).
The 34-year-old diva wore a head-to-toe red layered outfit, embellished with Messika jewellery, a diamond-encrusted Jacob & Co. watch ($72,000), and MM6 Maison Margiela x Salomon Cross Low Sneakers ($360). She also wore a glossy bustier by Loewe.
The singer of “We Found Love” also flaunted two bespoke Alaa jackets, beginning the performance in a floor-length red leather puffer coat and concluding it with a red leather puffer scarf. Both coats had integrated gloves for additional drama.
She accessorized her fiery stage look with a similar red lip ($29; Fenty Beauty Fenty Icon Velvet Liquid Lipstick in The MVP) and a sleek ponytail with face-framing tendrils. Mid-performance, she touched up her makeup with her brand’s Invisimatte Instant Setting + Blotting Powder ($34).
In an interview with Page Six Style prior to the Super Bowl, Rihanna’s makeup artist Priscilla Ono teased her “iconic” big-game beauty look, saying, “I want a makeup look that you can look back at, at any point in time, and be like, ‘That look? I need that on me right now.”
The pop sensation has shifted away from music in recent years to concentrate on her billion-dollar fashion and beauty brands, including her Savage X Fenty lingerie line, Fenty Beauty, and Fenty Skin. All of these brands recently released collections with a Game Day theme to coincide with her performance.
Rihanna gave birth to a son, her first child with Rocky, in May 2022. She made several headlines while pregnant in a succession of daring looks, including a sheer Dior lingerie outfit and a bump-baring Coperni set.
