Taylor Swift fans are convinced she’s playing the Super Bowl Halftime Show and they might be right

🎤

WAKE UP, AMERICA — AND YES, I KNOW THAT’S AN AGGRESSIVE WAY TO SAY HELLO, BUT THEM’S THE BREAKS BECAUSE WE. HAVE. TO. TALK.

*deep breath*

Twitter lit up early Friday morning when the NFL announced some pretty significant Super Bowl news at the stroke of midnight: They’ve signed a multi-year halftime show sponsorship deal with Apple Music months after ending their deal with Pepsi. (By now you’re asking, “Is THIS why you’re screaming at me right now? Because Apple’s going to be taking over yet another thing? Get lost, CORPORATE SHILL.”)

STAY WITH ME, THANKS.

The announcement’s significance goes way, way beyond the news itself — or at least, we’re pretty sure it might but have no actual confirmation and are making that very clear early on. Because the thing is MANY believe this was a clever way to let the world know what’s really going on here: Taylor Swift might be playing the SUPER BOWL HALFTIME SHOW.

First, the evidence:

The NFL dropped a major press release at midnight. 

Any Taylor Swift fan worth their weight in cozy fall sweaters knows midnight is when this girl goes to WORK. She dropped two surprise albums at midnight during the pandemic, the word “midnight” appears approximately 2,000 times in her extensive song catalogue, AND she’s releasing a brand-new album Oct. 21 titled — you guessed it — Midnights.

But midnight is the golden hour for Taylor Swift fans. That’s when we come alive, like vampires if vampires could sustain their existence with relationship trauma, profound emotional growth and eternal spite toward Jake Gyllenhaal.

Taylor’s never performed during a Super Bowl Halftime Show due to her contract with Coke barring her from even LOOKING at a Pepsi. 

OK, that’s an exaggeration …probably… but Swifties have spent years wishing Taylor could have the opportunity to play the halftime show and it was unlikely to happen as long as Pepsi was the sponsor.

BUT THEN.

After 10 years of iconic Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show performances, we have decided it’s time to pass the mic.   Thank you to the amazing artists and fans who helped us create some incredible moments along the way.  Now on to the next stage…

Taylor’s been teasing the track titles of Midnights since the announcement and at the same time the Apple Music news dropped, she announced Track 8: “Vigilante Sh*t”.

OK, I’m admittedly not as skilled at Taylor Swift clue-deciphering as many of her fans, so I can’t actually say this hints at anything resembling confirmation. HOWEVER, it’s pretty smart to drop Taylor Swift speculation at a time when her massive fan base is Very Online waiting for another clue about the new album. It’s also just a great name for a song. …read more
