Lady Gaga Super Bowl: Singer Headlining Halftime Show After All & Announcement Coming Sunday? [VIDEO]
The NFL could be making a formal announcement about Gaga's halftime show very soon.
Lady Gaga fans are going through the wringer trying to figure out if she is playing next year's Super Bowl or not.
News of Gaga headlining the Super Bowl halftime show was first reported by Us Weekly. This was after it was revealed that the eccentric musician was "in talks" to perform but nothing had been finalized.
Such excitement ended quickly, when Natalie Ravitz, senior vice president of communications for the NFL, tweeted, "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."

Plus, speaking to The Washington Post, Ravitz explained, "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."
This isn't a flat-out denial that Gaga will be performing at the halftime show, but it did disappoint several Little Monsters.
Now, there's a new development that states she is, in fact, headlining the halftime show! A report from SportsBusiness Daily is claiming that Gaga will be the halftime show performer, and it will be formally announced by the NFL during its Sunday programming.
Assuming the report is true, this would be Gaga's second Super Bowl appearance. She performed the National Anthem before this year's Super Bowl, which received rave reviews from critics and the general public alike.
The past few Super Bowl halftime shows have featured popular modern acts, including Beyonce, Bruno Mars, Katy Perry and Coldplay.
Gaga's new single "Perfect Illusion" is out now. It is the lead single off her new album, Joanne, which is set for release on Oct. 21. The singer can also be seen on the current season of FX's American Horror Story.
