Will Taylor Swift Play The 2016 Super Bowl Halftime Show?
Are you ready for some
football Taylor Swift?
Swift, who announced yesterday (June 25) that her 1989 will officially stream on Apple Music’s new service, is poised to expand her massive audience even more widely: RadarOnline has reported that she may be Super Bowl 50’s halftime show performer. Beer, wings and “Bad Blood“? Sounds like it has all the makings of a winning combo.
The site says the show is hers for the taking, and that she’s very eager to sign on, but mentions that there’s one hangup: The idea of performing immediately after frenemy Katy Perry played the 2015 show has given the country-pop crooner second thoughts.
Perry famously stormed the Super Bowl 49 field in Glendale, Arizona while mounted on a giant tiger float. Her performances of “Dark Horse,” “I Kissed A Girl” and “Roar” included dancing chess pieces, a shooting star perfectly befitting of a “The More You Know” commercial and cameos by Lenny Kravitz and Missy Elliott.
Oh, and the infamous Left Shark, of course.
Tay has yet to weigh in on the rumors, but if her 1989 World Tour is any indication, she’s definitely got a show ready to go. We’re willing to bet it’d get reigning MVP Tom Brady up and dancing in no time.
Think T. Swift would make for a memorable Super Bowl show? Sound off, and tell us how you think she’d compare to Katy.
