After a successful season of “American Horror Story: Hotel” and a spectacular performance of the national anthem during the 2016 Super Bowl, Lady Gaga has been chosen to headline the 2017 Super Bowl halftime show, a source confirmed to Us Weekly.
The exciting news was released days after Us Weekly reported the speculations of Gaga headlining the national event.
“This is one of the highest honors of my career,” Gaga exclaimed last year, following her performance of the Super Bowl national anthem.
Wearing a red Gucci pant suit, she continued, “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.”
Coldplay, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Beyoncé and Madonna are among the most recent artists to headline the Super Bowl halftime show.
Gaga’s fifth studio album, “Joanne,” is set for release on Friday, Oct. 21.
