Lady Gaga is not confirmed to perform at the 2017 Super Bowl in February, despite a report stating otherwise.
“Nothing has changed from what we said earlier in the week,” a representative for the NFL told EW in a statement, adding the latest report was “not true.”
Last week, Billboard first reported Lady Gaga was “in talks” to perform during the halftime show next year. At the time, the NFL told EW in a statement, “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. We’re happy there is so much excitement about the show.”
Natalie Ravitz, SVP Communications at the NFL, also denied the report when she tweeted, “[Us Weekly] ignored my on record response: we’ve had conversations [with] several fantastic artists about SB Halftime Show but no final decision.”
Lady Gaga, who just announced that her fifth album Joanne will be out Oct. 21, performed at the iconic event last year when she sang the national anthem before Coldplay, Beyoncé, and Bruno Mars performed during the halftime show.
