Rihanna has responded to calls for her to headline next year’s Super Bowl Halftime Show.

The singer was asked about performing at the event on the night of her Savage x Fenty show at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

RiRi told Entertainment Tonight: “I still got an album to finish. You gonna ask me about Super Bowl? My fans about to have my neck.”

Last year, the 31-year-old allegedly “declined” the opportunity to headline the 2019 Super Bowl Halftime Show – in support of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

The football player famously started the #TakeAKnee movement in 2016, after he declined to stand for the national anthem at games in protest of police brutality.

The news comes after Jennifer Lopez recently responded to rumours that she’s set to headline the 2020 Super Bowl.

The 50-year-old said: “I don’t know… I know everybody’s asking me. They’re starting to think I’m telling people things. I don’t know anything yet!”

“It’s something that we’ve talked about for many years, and, you know, it would be nice. It would be nice. I can’t say I wouldn’t love it.”
