(JAMAICA OBSERVER) – Former US President Donald Trump has described pop icon Rihanna’s Super Bowl Halftime Show performance as the “worst” in the history of the event.
Trump in a post to his social network Truth Social on Sunday wrote: “EPIC FAIL: Rihanna gave, without question, the single worst Halftime Show in Super Bowl history.”
In the post, Trump accused the singer of using “foul and insulting” language, possibly in reference to the 2020 incident in which Rihanna was seen posing in front of a spray-painted art installation. The centrepiece of the installation was a car that had the words “F*** Trump” painted on it.
Trump also criticised Rihanna’s fashion choices at the Super Bowl, writing: “Also, so much for her ‘Stylist!'”
This is the second time in as many days that Trump has taken a dig at Rihanna, as in another post to Truth Social on Thursday he said that the pop star would be “NOTHING” without her stylist and claimed that the singer has “NO TALENT!”
Rihanna has been vocally anti-Trump. She called his rallies “tragic” in 2018 and asked that her music not be played at his events.
The singer performed a medley of 12 songs at the Super Bowl, including “Umbrella,” “Diamonds,” and “All of the Lights”.
During her 13-and-a-half minute set, she showed her baby bump under her bright-red outfit, revealing that she’s pregnant with her second child with A$AP Rocky.
Rihanna in her social media posts on Sunday night did not respond to Trump’s comments.
