WATCH: Rihanna grabs crotch, butt and sniffs hand before revealing she's pregnant in bizarre halftime show
In case you missed it, Rihanna gave the halftime performance at the Super Bowl last night. And if you missed it, count yourself lucky.
For starters, her backup dancers looked like dystopian doctors in hazmat suits coming to arrest you for playing catch with your daughter in 2020. Which isn't a great look.

Next, she appeared to grab her crotch, then sniff her hand. Because of course she did.
\u201cSo is it me or did Rihanna just grab her junk and then smell it and taste it? Way to stay classy! #SuperBowl\u201d— Joe Has Dementia (@Joe Has Dementia) 1676252144
She also grabbed her butt for some reason. Which is apparently supposed to "trigger" far-right viewers, but personally, I'm just confused.

I remember when I was a kid, the halftime show used to be the most exciting part of the game. Now it consists of pop singers of varying degrees of mediocrity with increasingly bizarre acts.
On a slightly different note, Rihanna's appearance sparked rumors she was pregnant , and has since been confirmed by one of her representatives. Which makes these, er, "interesting" dance moves even more..." interesting",
The father is her boyfriend, A$AP Rocky. In an interview before the Super Bowl, Rihanna teased, "I'm thinking of bringing someone." It appears that "someone" was in fact her four-month-old baby.
Rihanna had her first baby back in May and actually credited her newfound motherhood with her decision to say yes to the Super Bowl performance: "When you become a mom, there’s something that just happens where you feel like you could take on the world — you can do anything. And the Super Bowl is one of the biggest stages in the world." She also said that, even though it was scary, she found it "exhilarating".
This is quite a nice turn of events from Hollywood actresses chalking up their career successes to the abortions they've had along the way. And perhaps Rihanna's motherhood will lead to a decrease in crotch-sniffing. We can only hope.
