Rihanna was rumoured to be headlining Glastonbury 2023 - but will she perform?
The pop superstar released her first solo track in six years in October in the form of power ballad ‘Lift Me Up’ for the Marvel sequel Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and is plunging straight back into her return to music, with the songstress making her return to the stage during the Super Bowl halftime show in February.
Although Riri has been busy with her beauty, makeup and lingerie lines over the last six years, her music comeback has been highly-anticipated since she dropped her last album ‘ANTI’ in 2016.
But will she perform at Glastonbury this summer? Here's what we know...

It's now been reported that Riri was, in fact, set to join the line-up but had to drop out as it's set to clash with her due date, which is thought to be in the summer.
This comes after this tabloid previously reported that the Savage X Fenty mogul’s team had been speaking to organisers Emily Eavis and dad Michael and was keen to take to the stage in Somerset this summer.
An insider said: “Rihanna has been approached about Glastonbury and next year’s festival would be just the right timing for her. She is a huge name for Worthy Farm and would be the perfect addition to the line-up.
“Everything about Rihanna’s music comeback is being closely guarded but her team has been talking with the Eavis family.”
Riri haș previously spoken about taking to the Pyramid stage at Glasto, admitting she’d ‘love’ to do the festival.
“I’d love to play Glastonbury,” said Rihanna, “I have heard so many things about what happens there.”
“I love rock music. I love Kings of Leon and The Prodigy. I like the more traditional rock bands, too: Aerosmith and Bon Jovi. I could rock the stage at Glastonbury, no question,’ added Riri.
Rihanna announced her second pregnancy during her Super Bowl performance earlier this year and has since stepped out with her adorable son and boyfriend A$AP Rocky in a series of baby-bump-bearing outfits.
