Taylor Swift could soon fulfill her fans’ wildest dreams, headlining the Super Bowl halftime show next year, according to a report.
The Grammy winner, 32, will play the coveted role, a trio of sources told Variety on Friday.
Swift fans have wanted the “Wildest Dreams” singer to perform on America’s biggest stage for years, but her long-term role as a Coca-Cola brand ambassador was long thought to jeopardize any chance that the singer plays what was, until recently, a Pepsi-sponsored show.
Pepsi ended its longtime partnership with the NFL in the spring, and Variety’s report on Friday comes just hours after the NFL announced at midnight that the halftime show would be sponsored by Apple Music, whose launch in 2015 was marked by Swift’s refusal to release her “1989”. album on the service as long as it withheld musician refunds from users’ free trial periods.
The policy quickly changed and Swift released her album on Apple.
Representatives for Swift, the NFL, Apple Music and Roc Nation did not immediately respond to Daily News requests for comment.
