Donald Trump has made his feelings about Rihanna's epic Super Bowl Halftime Show very clear.
Well before the Barbadian singer took to the stage at Arizona's State Farm Stadium, the former US President wasn't fond of the 'Work' musician.
He took to Truth Social a few days ago to say: "Without her ‘Stylist’ she’d be NOTHING. Bad everything, and NO TALENT!"
Ooft, brutal from Trump.
It's not as if these two really ever got on, though.
Rihanna has also made her feelings on the ex-Commander in Chief plain and simple multiple times.
Back in 2020, she spray-painted 'F**k Trump' at the Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, Texas.
A year earlier, the 34-year-old singer called Trump 'the most mentally ill man in America' in an interview with Vogue.
So, it's no surprise that Trump has posted on Truth Social to give his two cents about Rihanna's Super Bowl Halftime Show.
He wrote: “EPIC FAIL: Rihanna gave, without question, the single worst Halftime Show in Super Bowl history.
“This after insulting far more than half of our Nation, which is already in serious DECLINE, with her foul and insulting language.”
He added at the end 'so much for her "STYLIST"' just for extra effect.
Rihanna's 13-minute set was packed full of some of her biggest hits and saw the singer belt out the notes while on platforms suspended above the pitch.
She sang songs like 'We Found Love', 'Work', 'Rude Boy', 'Where Have You Been?' and 'Wild Thoughts'.
What was an interesting deviation from previous Halftime Shows was that she did it all by herself.
Performers in the past have been known to bring out a guest or two to help them sing one part of the song, however Rihanna owned the stage from start to finish.
Most observers seem to be of the opinion that she didn’t need anyone but the large cabal of dancers that she had alongside her.
One person tweeted: “Rihanna said ‘I don’t need any guest performers.’
Another wrote: “I don’t want to hear that Rihanna should’ve had a guest performer. No she didn’t.”
A third said: “No guest stars needed. Just a celebration of the live return of Rihanna and her absolute bangers! What a brilliant spectacle.”
And, to top it all off, she announced she is pregnant and expecting her second child with A$AP Rocky.
Many speculated that the singer had a noticeable baby bump and she made small nods to her pregnancy during her performance by holding her stomach.
While Donald Trump might not be a fan, it seems there are loads of others who were thrilled with her performance.
