Is Lady Gaga Headlining The Super Bowl 2017 Halftime Show Or Not?
US Weekly says that Gaga will be - but the NFL say that there hasn't bee a "final decision"...
Over the weekend, US Weekly ran an ‘exclusive’ claiming that Lady Gaga will be, after much speculation, headlining the Super Bowl 2017 Halftime Show. But now an NFL representative has taken to Twitter stating that there hasn’t been a final decision on the headliner yet. Hmm.
It’s a bit of a mess all of this, isn’t it?
Here’s some more detail. (Not that there’s a substantial amount of detail.) According to US Weekly, a source had confirmed to them that the Grammy winner had signed on to play the Halftime Show in Texas, on February 5, 2017. After this was published, a lot of Little Monsters were understandably excited about the news.
But then an NFL representative, Natalie Ravitz, took to Twitter to set the record straight. Ravitz wrote that US Weekly had “ignored” her on the record response, going on to say “we've had conversations w several fantastic artists about SB Halftime Show but no final decision”.
So is Lady Gaga headlining the Super Bowl 2017 Halftime Show or not? It could still happen - that hasn’t been denied - but the news is yet to be confirmed. As soon as this story develops, we’ll update you, so stay tuned to MTV.
Meanwhile, Lady Gaga has finished recording her fifth studio album, Joanne. The new album is set to be released Friday, October 21.
