Rihanna’s Super Bowl halftime show was full of absolute bangers, and still only scratched the surface of her hits. Rihanna ran through a dozen of her iconic songs before the 15(ish) minute show was over, and it did all with nothing but some backup dancers, skipping out on the star studded guest artists that normally accompany Super Bowl halftime show. But with hits that good, who needs anyone else?
The modern halftime show is also machine made for memes and, of course, Rihanna delivered on that front too. More specifically, the superstar’s stage itself caught the Internet’s attention immediately. As most of Twitter correctly pointed out during the show’s first couple of minutes: Rihanna’s extremely cool, flying platforms just happened to look exactly like a Super Smash Bros. stage.
