Rihanna halftime show guests
In an interview with E, the star addressed the prospect of whether she'll have guests join her on stage for the halftime show.
"Twelve minutes?" she said. "You could actually do that by yourself, but it's one of those things where you can decorate it however you want. So whether I choose to do it for myself or whether I choose to bring some of my peers on, it's..."
The singer paused then added, "I don't know what I'm gonna do yet. It's gonna be great either way."
Has Rihanna played the Super Bowl before?
No, this is Rihanna's first time at the Super Bowl. She turned it down in 2019 when the NFL approached her.
She declined in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick, the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback who filed a grievance with the NFL, believing he'd been blacklisted for kneeling during the national anthem to protest inequality and police brutality.
Kaepernick has since withdrawn his grievance.
