Lady Gaga is in talks to perform at the Super Bowl halftime show in 2017. After it was reported Adele was offered the position first (which the NFL denied), sources are now whispering Lady Gaga is next in line.
"One of the main reasons for why the NFL is said to be hot on the singer was her performance of the National Anthem at the 2016 Super Bowl," Billboard reports.
Naturally, the NFL won't confirm or deny. "We have had conversations with several fantastic artists about the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show. However, at this point we do not have a final decision," said an NFL rep. "We’re happy there is so much excitement about the show."
Gaga was asked earlier this week if she'd considering performing at the Super Bowl. "Absolutely," she said, and mentioned bringing her album collaborators Mark Ronson, Florence Welch, and Beck on stage if she did.
Mother Monster has a huge catalogue to choose from, and the experience to back it up. Perfect choice. Perfect illusion.
