Britney Spears’ associates have had “secret discussions” with television and advertising execs tied to Super Bowl LII. The game will take place Feb. 4 in Minneapolis.
A source says, “Britney has made it clear to her team that it is a dream to perform at a Super Bowl. She has the hits package and appeal to be a headliner.”
Spears could also be packaged with other big acts to fill the 12-minute slot. The now, 35-year-old singer last rocked the Super Bowl in 2001, when she performed “Walk This Way” in Tampa with acts including Aerosmith and ’N Sync.
Last summer, Spears was asked point-blank by BBC Radio 1 if she would be game for another Super Bowl show.“Yes, I would probably do that,” she answered.
Reps say the success of her Las Vegas residency has proven the “Baby One More Time” singer to be commercially and emotionally stable enough to perform for millions at the NFL’s biggest showcase.
