Lady Gaga will headline Super Bowl 2017!
A source confirms to ET that Mother Monster will serve as the halftime headliner for February’s big game. The performance marks a quick return to the high-profile stage for Gaga, who delivered a stunning rendition of the national anthem at Super Bowl 50 earlier this year, and Mother Monster confirmed the news herself on Twitter:
“I really just want to be there for the football fans,” Gaga told Carson Daly on Live at 97.1 FM, adding, “because that’s what I’m there to do”. Watch more below.
The National Football League has not yet confirmed the news, offering the following 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.”
Earlier this month, Gaga revealed that her new album, Joanne, would be released on Oct. 21. But first, Gaga will unveil the music video for her latest single, “Perfect Illusion,” on Tuesday, Sept. 20, during the premiere of “Scream Queens” on Fox.
Meanwhile, Gaga — the actress — will appear on the sixth season of Ryan Murphy’s other show, “American Horror Story”, for her second run on the anthology series. She’ll also star in Bradley Cooper‘s big screen remake of “A Star Is Born” for Warner Bros.
