Lady Gaga is officially Super Bowl bound!

Ending weeks of speculation, the NFL announced moments ago that the superstar will headline the PEPSI Halftime Show at the 2017 game.

Details on the Pop titan’s touchdown after the jump…

Taking to Twitter, the singer tweeted:

The gargantuan gig comes as quite the coup for the 30 year old.

For, it sees her join the likes of Michael Jackson, Beyonce, and Madonna on the elite list of artists bestowed the Halftime honor. It’ll provide a huge platform to plug her new album ‘Joanne’ which lands in stores October 21st.

The 2017 Super Bowl takes place February 5th at Houston’s NRG Stadium.

    Here comes the hate….

    • Fancy BISH September 29, 2016

      This could be really entertaining if she does it right…a very dramatic opening and then the opening to Poker Face would be dope….
      I wanna hold em like they do in TEXAS pleeeease! *DUN!* (Michael Jackson style pause lol)
      Fold ’em, let ’em, hit me, raise it, baby, stay with me (I love it) (Pause)
      Love game intuition play the cards with Spades to start
      (Pause)
      And after he’s been hooked I’ll play the one that’s on his HEART!
      Then, start from the beginning…
      *MUSIC* Mum mum mum mah! Mum mum mum mah!
      lol

      • Onyourwrostday September 29, 2016

        Yessss biish you Betta plan this s*** out!!!!

      • Yasssss September 29, 2016

        The one good thing about the Super Bowl is that Gaga will finally know what it’s like to perform to a full stadium??

      • JOHNVIDAL October 1, 2016

        Gaga has some of the most successful tours EVER. So your hate and shade make you seem pathetic. Even if she does not do one anymore, she already did that. Now seethe! lol

    • RIP NFL September 29, 2016

      It boggles my mind how the NFL comes up with someone like Lady Gaga as the performer for the halftime show at the Super Bowl. ? I am not being sexist with this comment but she has a predominantly female following. Not saying that is a bad thing but why not get a performer that is more suitable for all audiences and that would entertain all of us instead of just the younger female generation considering that is who follows her the most. However that is not why I think she is a bad fit for the half time show at the Super Bowl. I simply feel like there are numerous other artist and great performers that would have been a much better fit for such a big event. The Super Bowl is not only the biggest sporting event of the year but possibly the biggest in general. I haven’t heard of Lady Gaga being in the spotlight or having any hit songs in QUITE some time, but perhaps that is just because I do not follow her or her music. OBVIOUSLY not everyone is going to follow or be into whoever the performer at the Super Bowl is, but there is a difference in a boy band or a singer like Lady Gaga that is liked more so by younger females compared to someone like The Red Hot Chili Peppers Coldplay Drake Eminem The Rolling Stones Florida Georgia Line or someone that has a bigger fan base. If there was a poll taken with football fans of who would be interested in attending a Lady Gaga concert I am pretty sure that number would be pretty low. Pretty disappointing if you ask me!

      • JOHNVIDAL September 29, 2016

        Last hope to save her dwindling career. Interscope needs $. She is a flash in a pan…after Born This Way.

    • O K September 29, 2016

      payola works…b*tches!!!!!

      🙁 🙁 🙁

    • LISA LEVINE September 30, 2016

      THIS IS THE PERFECT HALF-TIME. I GET TO EAT, DRINK AND ENJOY THE COMPANY OF FRIENDS, WHILE THIS TRAINWRECK – PERFORMS HER PLAYED OUT 5 YEAR OLD SONGS WITH ROBOT DANCING

      • Olie September 30, 2016

        Not looking forward at all ..

    • ? September 30, 2016

      She needs this, cause perfect illusion is bloody mess

      • LOL September 30, 2016

        The Superbowl halftime show is only 12 minutes long, so Gaga will have time to sing all her hits.

        Twice. ?

  2. Erica September 29, 2016

    I hope she brings back fame Gaga for this performance otherwise we will need a perfect illusion

  3. Leanne September 29, 2016

    Well considering its in Houston Gaga maybe it’s time too bring Beyonce out and perform Telephone!!!

    • MusicFan103 September 29, 2016

      This will probably happen since Houston, if she is smart. But damn three times in less than like 5 years for Bey would be insane. Super Bowl legend aka Bey.

      • Onyourwrostday September 29, 2016

        Gaga and bey ain’t really that cool no more there feelings towards each other stem from when bey was collaborating with Gaga for the self titled album you remember the ratchet earrings well whatever happened between them during that time made them not mess wit each other

      • BEY>RIH September 29, 2016

        They seemed cool in the pictute they took last year at the stevie tribute.

    • ronnoc September 29, 2016

      Beyonce does not need to perform at a 4th damn superbowl. I love Bey, but that is overexposure to the max

  4. king z September 29, 2016

    damn gaga! if u knew you were doing the super bowl why did you release the album so early?

    i hope she considers pushing the album back a bit!

    either way, i’m excited! goooooo gags!

    • JOHNVIDAL September 29, 2016

      Insterscope in a panic mood. Payola will save her career. K bye.

      • JOHNVIDAL October 1, 2016

        Payola??? LMAO That´s Katy Perry´s specialty. She starts every era with that. How is Gaga getting the superbowl payola but not the others? LMAO Haven´t you seen the budget for Perfect Illusion video? Payola more than others where? LMAO Hater!

    • Alex September 30, 2016

      It’s actually really smart. Gaga’s album will sell well in the forth quarter of the year. The next single will most likely be a big one, with a big video to match. The holiday season will sustain her sales, and after the Superbowl, when her album would have normally dropped off the charts, it will shoot back up. Third single release big video again and a world tour announcement after.

      Her team isn’t looking for big first week sales. They want an album that is selling year round.

      • S a m September 30, 2016

        Too optimistic. ArtFlop didnt sustain despite all the promos. Good luck ?

  5. Bb8345 September 29, 2016

    I rather have Gaga than Adele lol

  6. truthtea September 29, 2016

    There isn’t anybody else more deserving of this?

  7. NT September 29, 2016

    Fame Gaga would DESTROY the Super Bowl stage , but I thinks someone said it before her era’s are so visually defined it’ll be interesting to see how she handles each era in this time slot. She’ll probably get the Video Vanguard 2017 as well.

    • NT September 29, 2016

      ** but i think someone said it before

      • BeyMilitant September 29, 2016

        they can’t find any relevant artists. that’s why.

  8. SWISH September 29, 2016

    lmaoo here for the comments

  9. 4everbrandystan September 29, 2016

    …CHILE. WHERE IS QUEEN BRANDY WHEN U NEED HER. BRANDY WOULD SLAY. VOCAL BIBLE AND PERFORAMNCE QUEEN

    • SWISH September 29, 2016

      lmfaoo the delusion

    • SMH September 29, 2016

      Lmao at brandy.

  10. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy September 29, 2016

    The meltdowns and dragging on Twitter is too epic right now. Hopefully her label allows her to release a couple of more singles with accompanying videos before the show.

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) September 29, 2016

      Like, its very stupid of her to release her album now….That makes me think, either she was a last minute decision for the slot or she just wanted to get her album out in time for filming A STAR IS BORN..which starts early next year. She probably did not want to wait till 2018 for a new album, by then NOBODY WOULD GIVE A S*** ABOUT HER, AND ‘DEADLY DELUSION’ IS A SIGN OF THAT.

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy September 29, 2016

        People don’t care about her now. Outside of her Chipoltle eating, Hot Topic clique, not many interested in seeing her perform, and Perfect Constipation can’t even get a radio spin even though I like the song. I don’t know why she would do this to herself. No one cares at this moment. She should wait about 5 years where the general public might appreciate her

      • Surprise..(DEC 2013) September 29, 2016

        IN 5 YEARS…………SHE WILL PROBABLY BECOME KATY PERRY’S PERSONAL ASSISTANT. YEAH, THAT IS WHERE SHE WOULD BE. CAN’T WAIT!!!!!!

    • JOHNVIDAL October 1, 2016

      Whay don´t you guys focus on why Rihanna still cannot sing and her peers don´t take her seriously and never will instead of Gaga´s chart positions? True delusional stans (I mean, you think rihanna is more successful than Madonna and that her stage presence is like Janis Joplin´s 🙂 🙂 🙂 ).

  11. MusicFan103 September 29, 2016

    I feel like there are much better options who are more all encompassing musically speaking. Say Drake, Pitbull, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, for example.

    I guess I just can not see what songs the football flans will truly want to hear her perform? “Just Dance” “Poker Face” “Bad Romance.” ??? I mean I guess but then there isn’t much else if the new album doesn’t have anthemic songs.

    When it came to Madonna, you had a legend. Katy Perry you had a hot white girl. Beyonce, a show stopping near iconic hot black woman. I don’t see that for Gaga.

    That said Gaga is a great performer and the performance will be good, I just can’t see many people outside of her little monsters being here for it. Lets wait and see!

    • Mr.StLaurent September 30, 2016

      Agreed. I think Rihanna should have been the half time performer

      • JOHNVIDAL October 1, 2016

        To do what? her poses and hand gestures faking she is singing Whitney Houston type of acrobatics? To stand there? This should be about talent for performing, not about “it should be this artist cause oh well, she had a hit this year”. Grow up.

  12. Paulo September 29, 2016

    haaaaaa GaGa will SLAY and all y’all pressed b****** got 4 more months of whining until it happens LMAO!

  13. LmfaoHoe September 29, 2016

    Well than…… We shall all see until then.

  14. LmfaoHoe September 29, 2016

    Why not had confirmed in the first place thought, so extra.

    • JOHNVIDAL October 1, 2016

      Extra why? LMAO Haters with no possible arguments left. Last week someone in the media reported it was coming. That´s all. Nobody had to confirm anything before just cause you say so. Learn how business works before talking.

  15. ???????Chile, take this “Itty Bitty Piggy” to the market and make sure you hold her hand while crossing the street!??????? September 29, 2016

    Just imagine if Bey had only waited a little longer to headline the show in her own hometown. The undeniable ENERGY and PERFECTION that would go into that performance for her city would be immeasurable, to be honest.

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) September 29, 2016

      I was going to say that….THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN THE PERFECT COMBINATION and the best place for a DC reunion..BUT NEW ORLEANS was close tho…all in the southern area.

  16. Mo September 29, 2016

    F*** it up Gaga

  17. LB September 29, 2016

    Lol big mistake. Just announce Rihanna and get it over and done with, you know you want to NFL.
    ,
    Nobody has had a bigger year than her.

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) September 29, 2016

      I agree, i actually would like to see what Frih would have done. But i think its going to be either her or BORELOR SWIFT for 2018 superbowl….in that case i hope RIH gets it.

    • BEY>RIH September 30, 2016

      Quite a few artists have had a bigger year than frih actually.

  18. Del September 29, 2016

    Gaga should do well. She’s known for her theatrics.

    • Petra September 30, 2016

      Her voice is annoying snd her wacko costumes have gotten old.

  19. No favs, just here for the music September 29, 2016

    Should be interesting…I’m looking forward to it

  20. Surprise..(DEC 2013) September 29, 2016

    Hopefully ‘DEADLY DELUSION’ will fly back to top 20 on the billboard chart!!!!!!!!

    • ?Yellow Diamonds? September 29, 2016

      It won’t

  21. Meme September 29, 2016

    I am legit in tears. I’m so hurt. This really was suppose to be Rihanna’s year. Rihanna or Drake. No other option. I’m not going to say anything bad about Gaga, she will do well.

  22. Fashion Icon ~ Anti&Lemonade September 29, 2016

    a mess !!! who is gonna puke on her this time ??? maybe she’s will wear a chicken dress this time ?
    In all the 68498466 artist is an attention seeker you choose ? who is known for sexual and shocking things ?
    and the paradox of it is actually she lowered her image so if the show look anything like she released lately you will have so many people taking pee break.
    They should have take a male this time.
    But not Gaga

    • JOHNVIDAL October 1, 2016

      Your comment is so retarded and full of ignorant hate it is not funny. So that´s the only thing Gaga does? LMAO Haven´t you seen her slaying every stage with real vocals? Jazz? Oscars performances that Rihanna could only dream of being able to do? When will Rihanna have an ounce of Gaga´s talent? You just sound pathetic. Leanr to respect talent.

  23. Stephy September 29, 2016

    “Nobody has had a bigger year than her.”
    ————-
    Beyonka & Drake says hi… Anyways, I can’t wait to see Gaga slay the stage, like I know she can.

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) September 29, 2016

      Lol..even FRIH has had a bigger year than FADGA…JUST LOOK AT PERFECT DELUSION.

  24. Sharp September 29, 2016

    I just hope for her sake that she doesn’t turn it into an LGBTQ parade and leave Born This Way on repeat. I’m certain an arena full of predominantly straight men don’t wish to see men dance in heels and twerk….

    • Bitchpleaseeee September 29, 2016

      Girl, is there any straight man left in this day and age at all??? I don’t think so!!!!????

    • Rosie September 29, 2016

      Even I didn’t know it was happening until I went on this site, lol. It’s not even trending and it was announced 2 hours ago. This won’t change anything.

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy September 29, 2016

        Lady Gaga did in fact trend…All for about 15min at the bottom of topics being discussed. This isn’t good news for Gaga and Joanne

      • Rosie September 29, 2016

        Death 15 minutes at like #20? Even Shawn Mendes trends for longer than that.

      • JOHNVIDAL September 29, 2016

        She name her new tour …Joanne’s Balls? Time will tell.

        😆

  25. wayno September 29, 2016

    Rihanna and Drake Halftime would’ve been dope!

    GAGA has only one audience…. MONSTERS

    • RIP NFL September 29, 2016

      Twinks power bottom… 😀

  26. HailLegendBeysus September 29, 2016

    Lol Poor fRih! ?….
    .
    If Gagz career doesn’t catapult back into relevance especially if she manages to pull in a bigger audience than Katy Perry! The lashings are going to be merciless bg epic proportions! It’ll be a massacre like when fRihanna did #460 ??????!!!
    .
    All i gotta say is goodluck Gaga goodluck! Can’t wait to see what she does!

    • JOHNVIDAL October 1, 2016

      This years Superbowl didn´t surpass Katy Perry´s halftime show either, and Beyonce was there (correct me if I´m wrong, I barely remember), so why would Gaga not beating it (as if it only depended on the artist who performs anyway) be so bad? Just stop the ahte. Beyonce couldn´t beat Madonna´s halftime show which happened just the previous year either.

      • HailLegendBeysus October 1, 2016

        Lmfaooo bitxh did you not read? I know Bey didn’t pass Katys #s. I clearly said if her performance passes Katy’s #s and IT DOESN’T catapult her career back into relevance the lashings will be ruthless. I also never said the SB Half-time show is solely based off of the Artists. I know it’s not. The numbers can also reflect on what teams are playing that year.
        .
        Jesus Christ you really made a whole lot of nothing out of this comment didn’t you LMFAO!!! Talk about PRESSED!

  27. The kpop guy, Matt ~ September 29, 2016

    Oh my. She has A LOT riding on this era

  28. JOHNVIDAL September 29, 2016

    Finally, she will play in a stadium not a basket ball arena like Mariah…and sold-out.

    Not more black curtains to cover the upper sections.

    😆 😆 😆

    • OMG Logic!!! September 30, 2016

      B1tch, have you even seen the VEVO stats for Perfect Delusion? Even Mariah’s video for Beautiful got more hits than that s***. No one is here for Gaga apart from delusional gays and geriatric 90 year olds.

      Don’t fu ck1ng try it.

  29. OMG Logic!!! September 30, 2016

    Let’s be real. No one is going to be checking that out. I wouldn’t be surprised if Pepsi throws some other performers up there to help her Coldplay style. Judging by her latest video, the GP just isn’t checking for Gags anymore.

    • JOHNVIDAL October 1, 2016

      Absolutely every single artist has trown in other performers every year to appeal as many viewers as possible. How would this be new if she does it? Seriously, everybody doing the most. Hating campaigns are not cool.

  30. FC/JC September 30, 2016

    Sad that no one seems to care, However I know she will perform down…. But shell need all the theatrics again, this stripped down gaga wont do….

  31. GaGa’s Little Lamb September 30, 2016

    Good she can use this to sell the tour. Kii at the comments

  32. Mariah Carey September 30, 2016

    I feel like Gaga will prove them all wrong like I did dahhlings! ?

    • Molly September 30, 2016

      …..by being a nightclub singer??? 🙁

    • JOHNVIDAL October 1, 2016

      She definitely has the talent Mariah 🙂 But for some reason basic stans hate her more than they ever did to you (when you were the punching bag around 2001-2004). So commercially wise it is going to be almost impossible for her. What you did with the Emancipation was epic btw. barely any example in pop music history 🙂

  33. LOL September 30, 2016

    Gag has 3 #1 hits…she needs to sing Born This Way Extended Version remix.

    😆

  34. JanStan September 30, 2016

    Not surprising they chose her. She has more talent than 99% of artists out there and is only rivaled by Bey when it comes to live performance. So let it go chart stans. Gaga has earned the respect of the industry and the actual people that matter keep her booked. Queen!!!!

    • S a m September 30, 2016

      Superbowl half time present.The tribute artist Lady Pooanne Gaga featuring a massive rehash of old Art. ?

    • JOHNVIDAL October 1, 2016

      JanStan
      Yas! So refreshing to read a few comments with sane points in them. Gaga has officially been embraced by the industry and her talented peers (unlike many other of her peers). Stan are not relevant anymore in her case. She´ll have a quality career from now on rather than big commercial success. She deserves it.

  35. Nowqd Reddibut it ash trjoan ivy blobukz Need UK timely Ukuno eremixi September 30, 2016

    Nice

  36. mr.m September 30, 2016

    I wonder why did they choose her?!
    She don’t really deserve it tbh ..
    sang the national anthem last year and now this?
    JLO is better ..she would destroy it
    anywho, I know gaga’s gonna kill it
    she’s one of rarely FEW singers who can pull out a performance

    • JOHNVIDAL October 1, 2016

      Why do you ask yourself that question if you are saying she is gonna kill it? Sounds like reason enough. JLo cannot sing so maybe they prefer a more rock-ish sound with a real voice 🙂

  37. Lea October 1, 2016

    Where the hell is Jlo?

  38. JOHNVIDAL October 1, 2016

    She deserves it. I love it when real talent is promoted. I don´t know why some people think only the few people topping whatever singles charts atm are the ones who deserve to be everywhere and not anybody else? No huns. Music started with talent. Performing is about talent. Many people here have forgotten all about it cause it has turned into so much mediocrity with smoke and mirrors in mainstream. But talent should be needed and was needed years ago, when the industry was big. And Gaga has the talent, so I say YES! Also, for next year they should change and bring a different type of artist to headline, an older one or something.
