He sent Rihanna the appropriate message by telling her that she is exceptional and not to be taken lightly. She absolutely deserves to do the Super Bowl halftime performance this year, he continued.
“I’m gonna own it,” he said. “I know what y’all tryin’ to do. But I’m gon’ own it because I get paid to speak for a living, so I need to be more careful. I want Rihanna to know: You’re a superstar, you’re sensational, you’re spectacular. You’re no joke. And you are a worthy person to be doing the Super Bowl halftime show.”
