Not much is known about Rihanna’s halftime show at this point. However, the star discussed her nervousness for the show to Entertainment Tonight during a red carpet interview in November.
“I can’t believe I even said yes,” she said. “It was one of those things that even when I announced it, I was like, ‘Okay, I can’t take it back. Now, it’s like final.’”
“The Super Bowl is one of the biggest stages in the world, it’s an entertainer’s dream to be on a stage like that,” she continued. “But it’s nerve-racking. You want to get it right. You know, everybody’s watching. And they’re rooting for you. And I want to get it right.”
