"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," an NFL rep told Billboard when asked about Gaga. "We’re happy there is so much excitement about the show."
Gaga is coming off of several high-profile appearances in recent years, including a 2015 performance at the Academy Awards which was followed by an Oscar nomination the next year for "'Til It Happens to You" for best original song (written for the documentary The Hunting Ground). Gaga also won a Golden Globe in 2016 for best actress in a miniseries or television film for her role on the FX series American Horror Story: Hotel.
