An NFL official has denied an US Weekly report that Lady Gaga will headline the halftime show during Super Bowl LI in February.
Us Weekly “ignored my on the record response,” Natalie Ravitz, senior vice president of communications for the league, tweeted Sunday.
In an email to The Post, she added: “We have had conversations with several fantastic artists about the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show. However, at this point we do not have a final decision. We’re happy there is so much excitement about the show.”

Lady Gaga wowed Super Bowl 50 with her rendition of the national anthem and seemed a strong contender to perform at halftime. “This is one of the highest honors of my career,” she said last winter. “I get a chance to sing for all the athletes — who have been working so hard their whole lives for this moment — the coaches, as well as the fans in the stands who are waiting for this moment. I think it marks what being an American is all about.”
At least for now, there are going to be a lot of disappointed little monsters.
