Perhaps one of the most talked-about and viral Super Bowl halftime announcements ever was the revelation that Rihanna would take the stage during the NFL’s biggest game. Now, the journey leading up to the huge moment will be available for her fans to witness. According to reports, the superstar singer signed a deal with Apple TV+ worth millions of dollars that will chronicle RiRi’s reemergence onto the music charts over the past month with her single “Lift Me Up” for the “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” soundtrack and her overall return to music.

As for what to expect from the documentary, reports say the Grammy-winning artist “will be recorded during rehearsals and meetings in the lead-up to the big night and give an insight into what her life is really like now [that] she is returning to pop as a mom.” A release date and/or further details about the project have not been made immediately available.

The South African Style Awards, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, announced 13 winners at an intimate dinner hosted at the Zebra Square Gallery in Hyde Park, Johannesburg, on Wednesday. The winners and guests toasted with Valdo by Vinitalia and received luxurious gifts from Panier des Sens.

Winners include Boity Thulo who won the award for Most Stylish Performing Artist in Music, Lerato Kganyago for the SA Style Awards Achievement in Business Award, Lamiez Holworthy and Khuli Chana for Most Stylish Couple, Rosette Ncwana for Most Stylish Model; and more.

4. Letitia Wright calls out publication for comparing her anti-vaccination tweet to male actors with scandal controversies

Leticia Wright took to social media to show her frustrations over an article from The Hollywood Reporter comparing her COVID-19 tweet to the recent scandals of some men in Hollywood. “How dare you. You mentioned my name alongside men who have been accused of abuse & sexual misconduct. This is vile behavior,” Wright wrote about the story. The article details how Wright’s recent controversies involving her anti-vaccination retweet in the past may affect her chances during Oscar Awards season, listing the controversies of Will Smith, Brad Pitt, Woody Allen, and Casey Affleck.

THR Editor-In-Chief Nekesa Mumbi Moody told the media, “the intent was not to equate Letitia Wright’s situation with others mentioned in the article.” Earlier this week, the Black Panther actress shared how she moved on from the incident in a “healthy way. I feel it’s something I experienced two years ago, and I have in a healthy way moved on,” she expressed. “And in a healthy way, I’ve apologized and deleted my Twitter. I just apologized for any hurt that was caused to anybody.”

5. Cristiano Ronaldo becomes first to score in five World Cups with penalty against Ghana

Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring for Portugal against Ghana, becoming the first male player to score in five World Cup tournaments. Ronaldo returned to the starting lineup to captain Portugal against Ghana, before putting his side ahead from the spot in the second half with a record-breaking strike. He became the first male player to score in five World Cups in what was his eighth goal across those tournaments, as Portugal defeated Ghana 3-2.

Ghana’s rapid response through Andre Ayew was soon canceled out by quick-fire strikes from Joao Felix and Rafael Leao, before Osman Bukari pulled one back for the Black Stars. Ronaldo’s record-breaking goal comes in a turbulent week for the Portugal captain, which saw him first dumped by Manchester United before being slapped with a fine and ban by the FA for an altercation with a fan back in April.
