The Super Bowl is knocking on the door, spiking the blood pressure of fans. However, as thrilling as this looks to be it may not even be the main attraction because the big game is able to lure superstars for their halftime show every year. This year seems to be one of their most important ever as Rihanna will be performing and her preparations will be assisted by JAY-Z and his company Roc Nation. Big celebrities are showing their support for Rihanna, and DJ Khaled is also rooting for her.

While speaking with Page Six at Michael Rubin’s star-studded Fanatics party at the Arizona Biltmore, the rapper gave a special shout-out to his Wild Thoughts collaborator. “RiRi, I love you so much,” DJ Khaled claimed when asked what special message he had for the Fenty Beauty founder ahead of her highly anticipated halftime concert on Sunday.

Congratulations in advance. They changed the name of Super Bowl. It’s called ‘RiRi Super Bowl.’ I’mma have my airhorn ready and I’m going to order me a cheeseburger well done.

When asked if he will join Rihanna on stage as a surprise performer this weekend DJ Khaled remained tight-lipped. “I’m coming as a fan and Rihanna’s my sister. I can’t wait to see it. I’m here to support,” he told other reporters adding that he prefers Rihanna over the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles. “We’re all winners.”


The record producer was seen conversing with everyone from Kevin Hart to Odell Beckham Jr. inside the party. He also sang “All I Do Is Win (Remix)” on stage at one point. “Welcome to Rubinpalooza,” he said to the audience, which included Jay-Z, Teyana Taylor, Lil Baby, Dixie D’Amelio, Travis Scott, Drake, Winnie Harlow, and Paul Rudd.

Earlier this week, the outlet attended Rihanna’s Super Bowl LVII halftime show press conference in Phoenix, Ariz., where she teased her undoubtedly spectacular performance. “We’ve been working on it for a while, and every day it just gets closer and closer to the finished product,” she shared.

It’s a lot of preparation. This is the week that – it really is [about] being tested. Everyone, we’re just tightening up everything, everybody’s dialing in, everybody’s tuning up and [it’s] a lot of moving parts.

Priscilla Ono, Rihanna’s longtime makeup artist, also provided insight into the Umbrella singer’s “iconic” halftime show beauty look. Super Bowl LVII kicks off Sunday at 6:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. PT from Glendale, Ariz. Let’s see how Rihanna surprises us with her talent during her Super Bowl performance.
