The Swifties are back. Taylor Swift’s loyal fanbase is confident the Grammy-winning singer-songwriter will headline this year’s Super Bowl LVII halftime show. But how true is this?
Fans began scooping up “easter eggs” when the NFL issued a midnight press release stating that Apple Music, for which Swift has starred in commercials, would take Pepsi’s place as title sponsor. Because of the singer’s upcoming album, “Midnights,” and her new TikTok series Midnights Mayhem with me, where she announces the name of a different track each night at midnight, fans immediately connected. Maybe the NFL wanted to hint at Swift’s new job, or dare I say: maybe it just expired too well. Wink wink.
Swift never got to perform at the Super Bowl because she had a multi-year contract with Coca-Cola that started in 2013. So, with Pepsi out of the way, will we finally have the ‘Lover’-” Folklore”-“Evermore”-“Midnights” that we’ve been waiting for years?
Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like it.
While “three sources close to the situation” told Variety it’s happening and Swift is known for her cryptic hidden messages hinting at her future plans, outlets like TMZ and People reported that rumors are just rumors and that she will not be headlining this year’s halftime show. So, to repeat a message straight from Swift’s lyrics to everyone: you need to calm down.
But if for some reason things change and Taylor Swift decides to show up for the Super Bowl (which I just found out is on my birthday), nothing will make my little Aquarius heart happier.
