Is this true, or just a weird joke?!

We want to believe this SO BAD!!!
But now more A-listers are rumored to be taking the Super Bowl stage — and if it's true, this might just be the biggest halftime show ever!
Yes, you read that correct - JT and RiRi! Charles shared the "exclusive" news earlier this week, writing:
After finally releasing her long-awaited album Anti, Rihanna is FINALLY back in our lives!
The American Oxygen singer's eighth studio album was had a lukewarm debut in terms of sales when it dropped last week — but that's about to change!
Because RiRi will be performing songs from the new record at the Grammys later this month!
Since Anti just came out, the songstress isn't nominated for any awards — so it will be great to see her slaying on stage!
The BBHMM singer is the latest addition to an already star-studded show. Other stars set to perform are Adele, Justin Bieber, and Lady GaGa — who will perform a "three or four" song tribute to the late David Bowie.
On Friday, the 27-year-old confirmed the news on her Twitter, sharing:
While out on the road promoting their new projects, Clooney and RiRi stopped by Ellen DeGeneres' talk show and had a bit of fun playing Never Have I Ever. LOVES it!
Of course Ellen, being the instigator she is, didn't keep the questions clean as she asked about nude selfies, skinny dipping, and the deets about hooking up with someone over 50. Oooh!
Ch-ch-check out the AH-Mazingly, revealing game. Not to mention, George ALSO dishes about proposing to Amal Clooney (below)!
The bigger they are, the harder they fall…
Well, now that ANTI officially did not live up to the anticipation, it looks like the executives attached to the flop are trying to distance themselves from RiRi's latest work.
In fact, shortly after the album's initial leak, TIDAL's director of marketing Grace Kim released a statement ensuring fans everything was okay, saying:
UPDATE 4:09 P.M. EST: While Rihanna did enter this week's chart at No. 27, ANTI was only available for a small fraction of the sales week. The week ending February 4 will actually be the album's first full week under wide release and is projected to sell around 125,000 copies.
Who would have thought releasing your album for free on a website no one really uses would backfire?
That's because despite TIDAL's reports that RiRi managed to push over 1 million copies in just 15 hours… we're hearing that the actual sales are FAR less impressive.
In fact, according to the Billboard 200 Rihanna only sold 1,000 albums in her debut week!
To put that into context, ANTI debuted at No. 27 on the charts this week behind other first outings from Megadeth, the 2016 Grammy Nominees, and someone named Tank, making it the worst showing of her career…
Still, the RIAA did certify the album as platinum since over 1 million people have listened to it, it's just not technically a moneymaker.
Are U one of the dozens of the Navy who actually purchased ANTI this week??
