Equip the Swifties — Taylor Swift could be this season’s Super Bowl halftime act… or so the musician’s fans think after the NFL appeared to drop a big hint about the whole thing on Thursday night.
Here’s the deal – in May, Pepsi pulled out of its longtime partnership with the league and its Big Game halftime show…and on Thursday night, the NFL announced that it had finally replaced the soft drink company by Apple Music as a new sponsor. .
In its announcement, the league made no mention of a potential halftime performer for Super Bowl LVII … but, according to Swift fans, there was no need – because the timing of the release said everything.
The league oddly broke the news at midnight – something that has been associated with Swift for YEARS. She’s released two albums since 2020 that came out around this time, and she’s chanted the word “midnight” hundreds of times in her tracks.
Swift is also set to release a new album next month… titled “Midnights.”
Taylor has never done an SB show before – with many believing she wouldn’t take the gig due to a sponsorship deal with Pepsi’s biggest competitor, Coca-Cola.
With Apple Music now, however, it looks like Swift would be free and clear to stream “Shake It Off” to millions during the Super Bowl break on Feb. 12 with no problem.
The NFL has yet to confirm or deny the rumors – we’ve asked for comment, but so far no word has been given.
Our sincere thanks to
