This year’s Super Bowl is set to be must-see TV, thanks to the return of Rihanna. The Bajan beauty mogul will be making her long-awaited return to our screens and has everyone willing to risk it all for some tickets. That includes Ms. Amber Rose. She might have an offer from Russell Simmons if she’s really willing to do whatever it takes for a seat at the show.
The 2023 Super Bowl will see the Kansas City Chiefs go head-to-head with Philadelphia Eagles. The face-off will see brothers Travis and Jason Kelce play as the first sibling to go to the Super Bowl against each other. Travis is a tight end for the Chiefs, while Jason plays center for the Eagles. Their mother, Donna Kelce, is having a tough time choosing sides between her boys. Luckily for her, her boys have already won a Super Bowl each separately, so she’s already got two championships she’s been able to celebrate. “I’m a true fan of football. This is going to be so awesome,” she told the Today show earlier this week while sporting a combination Eagles-Chiefs jersey.
The mom went on to say, “They’ve already got the first win under their belts, so this is just going to be pure joy. We’re going to really enjoy this, have a great time. Obviously, there’s going to be somebody that’s going to go home heartbroken.” She jokes that someone will lose bragging rights at the Thanksgiving table.
This year will also mark the first time that both starting quarterbacks are men of color. Patrick Mahomes and Jalen Hurts will be going head-to-head in the historic game. For Mahomes, he could be the first black quarterback to win two titles if he takes home the championship this year. “I’ve learned more and more about the history of the Black quarterback since I’ve been in this league,” he told reporters recently.
While the teams are obviously a focal point, others are excited to see Rihanna take the stage for the halftime show. The Fenty founder is making her glorious return after seven years off the radar. With no new music out, it’s looking to be a full celebration of her back catalog. The new mom has been keeping fans excited with a line of Super Bowl-themed merch and social media teasers. She captioned her “trailer,” “#SBLVII #AppleMusicHalftime.” In the clip, she sported an oversized green fur coat and a crazy updo.
Philly native Amber Rose is ready to risk it all to see her team take home the championship this year. “Yo, who’s [expletive] I gotta eat to get tickets to the Super Bowl?” The influencer went on to discuss all the things she would do for the tickets using hashtag #FlyEaglesFly.” She’s since removed the post, but her proposition has made its rounds. Tickets are reportedly up to $4000 for the night.
Russell Simmons joined the various men who jumped in the comments letting her know, “I got tickets.” One person responded to the exchange saying, ‘Naaaaaah Amber Rose is sick for that caption & Russell Simmons just as sick commenting 4 times.”
