Rihanna Talks New Album, Lizzo, and Super Bowl Halftime Show
by Victor Chiles
Fans are raving about Rihanna and the aftermath of her Fall/Winter Savage x Fenty Collection which debuted Tuesday (Sept. 10).
This year, the Savage X Fenty event was bigger than ever, being presented in partnership with Amazon Prime Video. The lingerie line is one of Rihanna’s biggest passions at the moment, and she says she’s made sure to stay very involved in all facets of the clothing line.
The singer and fashion mogul stepped out in style at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, on Tuesday evening, where she stopped to talk with ET in a rare interview.
She gave Lizzo a shout out and praised her for being comfortable in her own skin. “I love Lizzo, she’s so badass,” said Rihanna. “She’s everything that Savage stands for.” The singer told ET that she’d collaborate with Lizzo in a heartbeat on anything she wanted.
She also addressed the rumors about the Super Bowl Halftime Show following Roc Nation’s partnership with the NFL. Apparently, there have been rumors that RiRi will be performing, but according to her, she knows nothing about that. “Actually this is my first time hearing about the Super Bowl since last Super Bowl,” she said. “Girl, I still got an album to finish.”
Speaking of the album, the conversation eventually turned over to her discussing the long-awaited album everyone’s been waiting for. Unfortunately, Rihanna didn’t spill any details. The songstress told her fans that the wait is not over yet. “I’m busy, I’m a confident woman so whatever I do, it’s gonna be confident, whether it’s the album, perfume, lingerie, makeup, or fashion,” she said, adding “Y’all gon’ have to wait Navy, I’m so sorry.”
Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty show will stream exclusively on Amazon Prime Video on Sept. 20 with performances from Big Sean, Migos, Fabolous, Fat Joe, DJ Khaled, and Tierra Whack.
