Christina Aguilera In Football Helmet Poses Topless To Prepare For The 2023 Super Bowl
On Sunday afternoon, the “Can’t Hold Us Down” singer took to Instagram to share a trio of snaps that featured her wearing a blue bedazzled helmet that conceals the lower half of her face.
She let her long blonde hair sweep over one shoulder in loose waves as she held her chest in both hands, showing off her long, manicured nails. In another photo, she removed her football helmet to reveal her glam look, complete with long lashes and a glossy red lip.
Fans Are Calling Christina The ‘Queen Of Football’
She accessorized her look with plenty of silver jewelry, including dangling earrings, two silver chain necklaces, and a large ring on each hand. In the caption, she simply wrote, “LVII” alongside a single diamond emoji.
Fans and famous friends were quick to show some love on her stunning snaps, with one follower calling her the “Queen of Football.” Another fan asked, “When are we getting your halftime show, Christina?” while another follower called her “The most iconic woman.”

“Umbrella” singer Rihanna will be taking the stage at the Super Bowl halftime show on Sunday night, but it looks like she took inspiration from another famous singer to help her pull off her own performance.
Rihanna Credits Beyoncé’s Halftime Show For Inspiration: ‘She Is A Beast’
On Sunday, Rihanna appeared on an episode of the NFL’s “The Process with Nate Burleson” podcast. During the interview, the “Diamonds” singer said that she studied Beyoncé’s halftime show performance to help her prepare for the showdown between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles.
“I watched Beyoncé’s halftime performances a couple of times,” Rihanna told host Nate Burleson. “She is a beast and a whole other level. Just to be inspired, really.” Beyoncé headlined the Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show as a solo act in 2013; however, former members of Destiny’s Child made a special appearance during her set.
In 2016, the “Single Ladies” singer took the stage again when she joined Coldplay and special guest Bruno Mars to perform on the iconic stage for a second time.
During a press conference on Thursday (via PEOPLE), Rihanna revealed that one of her biggest challenges to prepare for her performance was figuring out which songs to include. “That was the hardest, hardest part: deciding how to maximize thirteen minutes but also celebrate. That’s what this show is gonna be. It’s gonna be a celebration of my catalog in the best way that we could’ve put it together,” Rihanna said.
“You’re trying to cram seventeen years of work into thirteen minutes, so it’s difficult,” she confessed. “Some songs we have to lose because of that, and that’s gonna be OK, but I think we did a pretty good job of narrowing it down.”
The “Lift Me Up” singer also admitted that she’s been so busy preparing for the event that she forgot Valentine’s Day was coming up on February 14. It looks like she also hasn’t made any plans for her birthday, which takes place less than a week later on February 20. On that Monday, the Barbados-born singer will turn 35. Still, it looks like Rihanna is taking things in stride.
She recently welcomed her 8-month-old son with rapper A$AP Rocky last May and released her first song in almost seven years in October. “When you become a mom, there’s something that just happens where you feel like you can take on the world. You can do anything, and the Super Bowl is one of the biggest stages in the world,” she said.
“So, as scary as that was… there’s something exhilarating about the challenge of it all, and it’s important for me to do this, this year,” she added. “It’s important for representation. It’s important for my son to see that.”
