It’s the moment the Navy has been waiting for: RiRi is coming back!
Confirmed (September 26): Rihanna officially revealed she will be (momentarily at least) swapping the makeup brush for a microphone and making her way back to the live stage – after a SIX year break from the music scene.
The internet has been talking in recent weeks, as Ri has been spotted heading into a recording studio, but now we have a live show confirmed… and it’s on the world’s biggest stage.
Rihanna will perform the half-time show in 2023 and, as usual, the internet delivered on its reactions to the news.
Some key lols can be found below!
