Goldberg absolutely hated Rihanna‘s Super Bowl halftime show on Sunday … calling the singer’s performance “horrible”, and saying it left him feeling “disgusted.”
“I thought Rihanna was frickin horrible,” Goldberg said on his CarCast podcast with Matt “The Motorator” D’Andria. “I was disgusted by it. That’s all. Let’s just say that. I thought it was horrible.”
D’Andria said he thought Rihanna’s performance was “kind of boring,” and Goldberg agreed, calling Matt’s comment “the understatement of the year.”
Goldberg seems to have an issue with RiRi’s crotch grab — he wasn’t the only one — and felt like the “Bitch Better Have My Money” artist made the performance too much about herself.
Of course, Rihanna opted to do her 13-minute set at the Super Bowl without bringing out any surprise guests like other performers in the past have done.
Rihanna’s SB halftime show at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, AZ was the first time she’s performed in over 6 years … and we now know, she wasn’t exactly alone up there. 👶

Goldberg, however, is a fan of Chris Stapleton, who sang the National Anthem before the Chiefs-Eagles played, applauding the singer-songwriter for doing his job “to the fullest.”
Rihanna’s halftime show was reportedly watched by 118.7 million people — even more people than watched the actual football game — but we now know at least one of those many millions wasn’t a fan of the performance.
