NFL reportedly in talks with music superstar to headline Super Bowl halftime show after Taylor Swift declines
The NFL and ROC Nation are reportedly in talks with Rihanna about headlining the Super Bowl halftime show at the end of this football season.
This news came after TMZ previously reported that Taylor Swift declined to perform at the big event in Arizona. Swift reportedly didn’t want to perform until she finished rerecording all of her first 6 albums.
Sources told TMZ that there have been multiple discussions about the 34-year old Rihanna headlining the 2023 Super Bowl.
