Taylor Swift fans might think their favorite musician is lined up to play the next Super Bowl halftime show, but that’s just not true… TMZ has learned.
Social media was on fire Friday after TS fans thought the NFL had dropped a few Easter eggs that hinted Taylor was the big performer. However, we have spoken to sources with direct knowledge who have told us that Taylor will NOT be performing at Super Bowl LVII in Arizona.
As for those Easter eggs, the NFL sent out a press release at midnight announcing that Apple Music would take Pepsi’s place as the show’s sponsor. If you’re not familiar, Taylor has been making a lot of midnight announcements lately, so fans thought there was a connection.
Plus, Taylor had a deal with Coca-Cola for years, making a Pepsi halftime show impossible… so with Pepsi out of sight, fans figured it made sense for Taylor.
Of course, whoever gets the gig will have big shoes to fill … Dr.Dre, Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, Snoop Dogg and 50 cents made headlines as one of the best shows of all time during the big game in Los Angeles earlier this year.
