Rihanna’s music and career have long been admired by Adele who is also one of her closest friends in the music industry. Adele penned a tribute to her friend for the Time 100 list in 2018. It’s 2023 and it appears that their relationship is stronger than ever and Adele recently revealed that she will attend the Super Bowl just for Rihanna.

Adele will be cheering on Rihanna from the sidelines during the pop star’s highly anticipated halftime act at the 2023 Super Bowl in Arizona on February 12. “I’m going just for Rihanna. I don’t give a flying f–k,” the “Easy On Me” singer told a fan Friday during one of her Las Vegas residency shows at Caesars Palace’s Colosseum. Adele and Rihanna have been friends for years, so it’s no surprise that the “Hello” singer will back her friend.

Adele wrote an essay about the “Umbrella” singer for Time 100 in 2018, noting, “The progression of her superstardom feels steady, well deserved and extremely natural.” She added at the time, “Even more, she has designed and conquered an entire lane of her own. The innovative and groundbreaking world of Rihanna that no one else will ever be safe in and get away with copying. She makes her own rules and bends ours.”

Adele went on to describe Rihanna a “gracious, loyal, and funny goofball of an icon,” concluding, “She’s fearless and full of all the right kind of attitude to be everything that she is and will be forever.” Although Adele will only be attending the Super Bowl as a guest, her name has been mentioned as a possible halftime show performer multiple times in the past.

Madonna claimed in 2012 that she wanted the “Rumor Has It” singer to join her onstage for her own halftime performance which also included Nicki Minaj, M.I.A., Cee Lo Green, and LMFAO. “I wanted her to be in the Super Bowl with me,” the “Like a Virgin” singer said at the time.

But I think she was having her throat problem or throat operation or something.

Rihanna, like Adele, previously declined the NFL’s offer to play at the Super Bowl due to the NFL’s controversial treatment of Colin Kaepernick. However, the “Diamonds” singer has subsequently changed her mind about the concert, stating that she is nervous but excited for her upcoming performance.
