The rumors are true! Lady Gaga will headline the 2017 Super Bowl Halftime Show, Us Weekly reports. Gaga had her intro to Super Bowl stardom when she sang the National Anthem in 2016, but this year will take center stage at the 51st Super Bowl Halftime Show on 2/5. Additional acts are yet to be revealed. Gaga’s upcoming record Joanne is out 10/21, so we can anticipate a performance including some of her new songs.
UPDATE: The NFL’s senior vice president of communications tweets…
