Rihanna’s Super Bowl Halftime Show was much anticipated, with viewers tuned in from all around the world to witness the pop icon perform. There were hit songs, a pregnancy announcement, and even some Fenty Beauty promotion during the concert, but there was one moment that had fans talking, and it was a gesture that was taken out of the televised feed.
The 34-year-old singer entered the stage during the 2023 Super Bowl for the first time in years and rocked the audience with a hit-filled setlist. A video circulating on social media, however; has emphasized a motion made by Rihanna when the cameras were not on her; and some admirers believe it was a homage to the Illuminati.
The TikTok video recorded Rihanna holding her hands up over her head, creating a diamond with her fingers. While some fans jumped to conclusions and assumed the gesture was the Illuminati symbol; others quickly clarified that it was most likely the Roc Nation hand sign.
Many fans were disappointed that the gesture was not shown in the televised feed; and some speculated that it was omitted for a reason. Others, on the other hand, linked the symbol to her decision to wear all red; and either laughed about it or were more realistic about what she was doing.
Despite the uproar surrounding this one moment, Rihanna’s Super Bowl Halftime Show was a big success; with more people tuning in than the actual Super Bowl game. Whether you like Rihanna or not, it’s safe to say that her Super Bowl Halftime Show was unforgettable.
