Rihanna wants to make sure she gets her Super Bowl LVII halftime performance 100% correct ... working through 39 different setlists to get it right.
The music superstar discussed her everchanging plans on Thursday during an Apple Music press conference to pump the big show.
Rihanna told panel moderator Nadeska Alexis she hasn't been afraid to take charge, as there's a lot riding on this performance, including her own reputation.

The singer says trying to condense hours worth of musical greatness into a 13-minute set has been damn near impossible, but Rihanna says there are a lot of people who are involved working to make it successful.
She says her bossy side has surfaced on several occasions -- making small changes such as where her guitar players should stand.
We spoke to Rihanna about her pregame jitters back in October and it appears she still has them.
Rihanna Gives Birth to Baby Boy, First Child with A$AP Rocky
She openly admitted she had some hesitation taking the gig after giving birth to her baby back in May, and lamented over the lack of work/life balance to spend with her child.
Ultimately, the "Umbrella" singer says it was an honor to be put in a position to represent Barbados, immigrants and Black women alike ... and plans on incorporating plenty of her native Caribbean culture into the show.
Jay-Z, A$AP Rocky and T.I. are all heavily rumored to make cameo appearances also. We'll all know for sure come Sunday in Arizona!!!
