Never Say Never: Why Rihanna Had a Change of Heart About the Super Bowl

Super Bowl LVII is slated to begin Sunday at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona,  

while everyone will be focused on the big game between the Philadelphia Eagles  

the Kansas City Chiefs, even more eyes will be on Rihanna's highly anticipated halftime show.  

Rihanna has not given a public live performance since sharing the stage with DJ Khaled at the 2018 Grammys to perform "Wild Thoughts.  

Five years later, she returns to deliver a "celebration" of her extensive catalog at the halftime performance, but why did she chose the Super Bowl stage?  

The millionaire Fenty mogul told Vogue in 2019 that she would never sing at the NFL championship game because it would contradict her personal politics.

"I couldn't dare do that," she stated at the time. "For what?" Who benefits from that? Not my people. I simply couldn't be a sellout. I could not be an enabler.   

Rihanna's political views have definitely evolved since then; the singer recently told Entertainment Tonight that the Super Bowl halftime show is a "entertainer's dream  

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 said.   

"But it is nerve-racking. You want to get this right. You know, everyone is watching. And they are pulling for you. And I want to get this properly."
