Rihanna Is ‘Laser Focused’ Ahead of Her Hotly Anticipated Super Bowl Halftime Show

It’s almost time for Rihanna’s Super Bowl Halftime show, her first live public performance in years. A source told ET that the musical artist has “been putting in 100 percent and everything she has to get ready for her halftime performance.”

“She’s so excited and laser focused on every detail,” they explained. “There’s so much happening from her costume changes, her songs, and choreography with the dancers, and she is making the decisions on all of it. She just is practicing with her team of dancers and crew at all hours. There’s no time for sleep right now and they are all so dedicated.”

They added, “She knows this performance will be iconic for years to come and it will live on forever. She’s been tweaking things and saying how this is going to be craziest 17 minutes of her life. She is nervous, but also knows she is going to kill it.”

The source claimed that Rihanna is planning to do some of her classic hits, but there are a few “surprises lined up.”

“She wants everything to be perfect because she hasn’t performed in so long. She’s putting pressure on herself and wants to blow people’s minds,” the insider said. “She wants people from her country and all over the world to feel her speaking to them. She believes it’s a chance to do more than sing and entertain, and that it’s a time to speak to where she came from and represent who she is. Her performance will be all of that.”

The Fenty Beauty founder is also very excited to be performing in front of her boyfriend A$AP Rocky and their eight-month-old son, and she’s being lovingly supported by her family.

“She feels grateful to have A$AP’s support and has been talking about her son at rehearsals and showing videos to her dancers and team. She is such a devoted, hardworking mom and it’s really amazing to see,” the source gushed.
