Viewers were outraged by the inappropriate lyrics and crotch-grabbing in Rihanna’s Super Bowl LVII halftime show, which were typical of Hollywood standards. The performance was quickly criticized as an “epic flop” and for using “foul and disrespectful words” by former President Donald Trump. Rihanna’s performance didn’t contain any anti-Trump comments, but throughout her 13-minute medley, she did share that she is expecting her second child.
The singer has already come under fire from President Trump for her opinions and has been described as “nothing without a stylist.” Despite this, a lot of fans were excited to see what Rihanna had in store for the halftime act, however, not everyone was happy with the final result. Conservative journals have debated the song’s suggestive lyrics and crotch-grabbing, with some denouncing it as inappropriate for a family event like the Super Bowl.
Trump has not been the only well-known person to criticize Rihanna’s performance; many others have as well. Influencer Ben Shapiro said that celebrities should exercise greater restraint while performing before large audiences around the globe. He advocated that performers be held to higher standards in order to avoid endorsing themes that would mislead younger audiences.
Conservatives, who believe that Rihanna’s suggestive lyrics and gestures do not reflect their values or beliefs, have clearly been outraged by her Super Bowl LVII halftime show. There is no doubt that this kind of behavior is inappropriate in some settings, particularly those where children are present, despite the fact that some people may have loved watching it live on TV or online. Whether you agree with it or not, it’s obvious that these performances will continue to cause controversy among people on both sides of the political aisle for some time to come.
