The Queen of Pop, Rihanna, hit the Super Bowl halftime stage like a hurricane and brought the house down with her electrifying performance.

With her signature sass and powerful vocals, RiRi showed the world why she’s the reigning diva of the music industry.

Oh, did we mention that she also debuted her gorgeous baby bump during the performance?

In fact, her rep later confirmed that the singer is indeed expecting bub number two with her boyfriend, rapper A$AP Rocky, with whom she shares a baby boy who was born last May.

But not everyone was a fan of RiRi’s show-stopping display.

AFL bad boy Dane Swan took to social media to call out the pop star for being “selfish.”

“Extremely selfish of Rihanna not to bring a guest out,” the footy star tweeted amid the show.

Unsurprisingly, the hot take was met with major backlash, with one Twitter user hitting back, “Yes and I’m sure she’ll take on board the musings of someone as famous in Melbourne as you. You’re worldwide.”

Another added, “Uhh she isn’t required to have a guest.. she’s been on hiatus and showed up big for #SuperBowlLVII aaaaand her baby was her guest. Read the room.”

The singer lit up the stadium with her hit songs, captivating the audience with her undeniable charisma and stunning visuals. From her dazzling costume changes to her powerhouse vocals, Rihanna left everyone talking and craving more.

Rihanna’s return to the stage was a true celebration of her artistry and the hard work she’s put into her craft, reminding us all why she’s one of the biggest names in the music industry and why she continues to dominate the charts and the stage.
