We all missed "Bad-girl Riri" on the stage, but her comeback after seven years was worth the wait, and we loved to witness it. If you watched the Super Bowl this year, you certainly didn't miss the half-time mind-blowing performance by the sensational singer.
But what many of her fans do not know and would come as a surprise is that she earned nothing for her performance at the event. The expectant mum graced the stage looking beautiful and chic in her red jumpsuit on Sunday, February 12th, 2023.
She began by performing her popular hits, All of the Lights, Only Girl, Diamonds, and more while entertaining the audience with dancers on the stage. Everyone who witnessed the event would admit that Riri blew our minds completely. The audience's ecstatic jeers during and after her performance affirm this.
The famous Super Bowl halftime show is known for its tradition of celebrating the NFL every season. It ranks the most-watched show of all time, with a record of at least 100 million viewers from different parts of the world. While it's a great platform for performing artists invited each season to showcase their art and record the greatest number of streams and downloads on their best hits, the NFL never pays an artiste for a halftime show.S
This might be surprising to anyone reading this for the first time, especially since the show has witnessed genius performers like Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, Shakira, and Lady Gaga in time past.
Still, everyone knew they were not returning with a paycheck, as this has always been the culture at every Super Bowl.
Although the show makes sure to cover the expenses of every invited artiste, the welfare of the family, friends, technical crew, and security personnel, it is an unpaid event for any performer who agrees to grace the show.
The Barbados-born star surprised fans with a new baby bump a year after she welcomed her first son with American rapper and record producer, Asap Rocky. She looked beautiful and content, and we are happy to see she's in a happy place after everything she's been through.
