Rihanna's Explosive Super Bowl Halftime Performance Broke Twitter

If you didn't catch Rihanna's Super Bowl Halftime performance, then I'm sorry for your loss. If you did, however, happen to watch the iconic multi-hyphenate take the stage at Arizona's State Farm Stadium tonight, then it might come as no surprise to you that the show literally broke Twitter.

New music or no new music, she reminded everyone exactly who she is by performing a medley of her greatest hits while among a mob of dancers moving alongside her.

Ahead, the 12 funniest Twitter reactions to her return to the stage.

Rihanna previously opened up about taking the stage following a nearly six-year musical hiatus, which officially ended after she contributed a song to Black Panther: Wakanda Forever's soundtrack.

"When I first got the call to do it again this year, I was like, 'You sure?' Like, I'm three months postpartum, like, should I be making major decisions like this right now? Like, I might regret this," she said during the Apple Music Super Bowl LVII Halftime Show press conference last week. "But 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."

She added, "The Super Bowl is one of the biggest stages in the world. So as scary as that was, because I haven't been onstage in seven years, there's something exhilarating about the challenge of it all. And it's important for me to do this this year. It's important for representation, it's important for my son to see that."

When it came to rehearsing for the show, the singer said, "I haven't done this in a minute, first things first. So you're just running around for 13 minutes, trying to put a two-hour set in 13 minutes. And you're gonna see on Sunday, from the time it starts, it just never ends until it's, like, the very last second. ... It's a jam-packed show, and it takes a toll on your body, it does."
