Well, Swifties, it seems “You need to calm down”.
Hours after fans hypothesized that Taylor Swift could be the Super Bowl LVII halftime show, TMZ and People “learned” from sources close to the situation that she won’t be performing at the game.
The excitement surrounding Swift’s Super Bowl performance began when the NFL and Apple Music issued a press release at midnight on Friday announcing that the streaming service would take Pepsi’s place as a sponsor of the halftime show.
In 2020, the “Look What You Made Me Do” singer released two albums: “Folklore” and “Evermore” at Midnight and has an upcoming album titled “Midnights” due out on October 21.
If that seems like a stretch, it seemed like common practice to fans. Swift is known for dropping “Easter eggs” that lead to new projects — little bits of information her following piece together to figure out what’s next in her career.
It would also have been an opportune time for Swift to take over the gig since Pepsi is no longer associated with the show. She’s been in a sponsorship with Coca-Cola since 2013, leading some fans to believe this was Swift’s first time ever getting involved.
But for now, we can confirm that Super Bowl LVII will take place on February 12, 2023 at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
The Post has again reached out to representatives from Swift and the NFL for comment.
