Well, Swifties, it would appear “You Need to Calm Down.”
Hours after fans hypothesized that Taylor Swift could be the Super Bowl LVII halftime show act, TMZ and People “have learned” from sources close to the situation that she will not be performing at the game.
The buzz around Swift’s Super Bowl appearance began when the NFL and Apple Music released a press release Friday at midnight, announcing that the streaming service would fill Pepsi’s spot as the halftime show’s sponser.
In 2020, the “Look What You Made Me Do” songstress dropped two albums: “Folklore” and “Evermore” at midnight, and has an upcoming album titled “Midnights” set to drop on Oct. 21.
If that seems like a stretch, it was standard practice for to fans. Swift is known for dropping “Easter eggs” leading up to new projects — little tidbits of information that her following puts together to figure out what’s coming next in her career.
It also seemed like great timing for Swift to take the gig since Pepsi will no longer be associated with the show. She has been locked into a sponsorship with Coca-Cola since 2013, leading some fans to believe that this was the first time Swift would even be allowed to get involved.
But for now, the thing confirmed at Super Bowl LVII is that it will take place on Feb. 12, 2023, at the State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
The Post has once again contacted reps for both Swift and the NFL for confirmation.
