Gaga is a true original, after all ― pause for Madonna side-eyeing somewhere ― so she will reportedly be bucking convention and taking over the NRG Stadium by herself on Sunday, Feb. 5, when either the New England Patriots or the Pittsburgh Steelers face off against the Atlanta Falcons or the Green Bay Packers. (Sports, I know, ugh.)
According to Billboard, Gaga will headline “without any guest appearances,” unlike the many performers of Super Bowl halftime shows past, including Coldplay and Katy Perry, who’ve welcomed artists like Bruno Mars, Missy Elliot, Lenny Kravitz and even Beyoncé herself.
The singers famously starred in two hugely popular music videos together, “Telephone” and “Video Phone,” neither of which the duo has performed live. Fans of both legendary divas have been clamoring for another collaboration ever since.
When Gaga’s halftime show was announced in September, it seemed like the team-up could actually happen, considering Beyoncé’s habit of casually dropping by the Super Bowl like it’s no big deal.
Somehow, we don’t think they’ll take this news too well.
Don’t cry because it’s over; smile because it happened.
