Super Bowl: Rihanna Performs Hits with ‘Baby Bump’

Published

on

Rihanna made her long-awaited return to the stage at the Super Bowl with a career-spanning medley of pop bangers, but it was her baby bump that dominated the conversation.

The megastar appeared in the stadium midair on a floating stage, donning a clingy, all-red ensemble featuring a molded bustier — and a belt below what many viewers deduced was another mini RiRi in the making.

Representatives for the singer confirmed the speculation to trade magazines Rolling Stone and The Hollywood Reporter: Rihanna is pregnant with her second child.

The 34-year-old welcomed her first child, a son, with rapper A$AP Rocky in May.

Musically speaking, fans who hoped for some fresh tracks were disappointed: Rihanna’s night on the world’s biggest stage offered a nostalgia tour of hits past.

She delivered her club smashes including “Where Have You Been” to “Only Girl (In the World)” and the time-tested “We Found Love.”

“Rude Boy,” “Bitch Better Have My Money,” “Work” and “All of the Lights” were also on the setlist, as a sea of dancers performed stunning acrobatics.

“Wild Thoughts” “Run This Town” and, of course, “Umbrella” and “Diamonds” rounded out the show.

She did not, as many stars do, bring out any guest artists, commanding the stage all on her own.

The evening marked a reversal after Rihanna had previously turned down the gig in protest of the National Football League’s handling of race issues.

But in accepting the coveted slot this time around, the Barbados-born singer said it was “important for representation.”

“It’s important for my son to see this.”

Since releasing “Anti” in early 2016, Robyn Rihanna Fenty has taken a break from recording but has by no means taken it easy: she’s become a billionaire, parlaying her music achievements into successful makeup, lingerie and high-fashion brands.

Since her last album Rihanna has performed occasional features and more recently recorded music for the “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” soundtrack.

But the album she’s been teasing for years remains the stuff of myth — and seemed it would stay so awhile longer.

Lizzy Anjorin Denies Stealing in Lagos Market, Fingers Unknown Actress As Mastermind

Nollywood actress Lizzy Anjorin has denied stealing gold from a market on Lagos Island; an allegation that has sparked controversy.

A video had emerged on social media showing the actress in a sitting position in a store, attempting to ward off a crowd of people recording her amid loud voices.

Anjorin narrated that the incident is about a purported failed transfer of N91,000 that she paid to an accessories seller on Tom Jones in the Idumota area of Lagos.

She alleged that she was set up just like filmmaker Olajide Kareem, alias Seun Egbegbe.

She said that some months ago she had gone to the market to buy accessories for N91,000 and asked her husband to forward the money to a guy who sold the accessories to her only to return to the same market on the day of the incident, to be told that the transfer she made was fraudulent.

She however, accused a famous actress (name withheld) of being the mastermind of the embarrassment. It is a known fact however, that Anjorin and fellow actress, Toyin Abraham are not in good terms.

“At Tom Jones, do they sell gold there? That place is Tom Jones, where we buy wedding materials—all these ‘para para’ (cheap) stones that we want to use for clothes. I do wedding gowns; it depends on the money the bride is paying. So I cannot go to Idumota to go and buy accessories in peace, abi? ‘Shekpeteri’, how come you know the story so quickly if you are not behind it?” She queried.
