Report: Madonna Booked for Super Bowl

Madonna just may burn the Super Bowl up with her love, as the rumored halftime performer at the February 2012 NFL championship game.

Though unconfirmed by the NFL, the sports news site SBNation.com cites sources as saying that Madonna has been booked as the halftime act for Super Bowl XLVI. As such, she follows in the footsteps of, most recently, the Black Eyed Peas, The Who, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty and Prince.

  • I swear to god, first thing I’m going to do when I become NFL Commissioner is hire Weird Al to play at the halftime show.

    • Sorry she is popular still, she just had the highest grossing tour by a singles artist in history. She definetly sells a lot of tickets so calling her unpopular is goofy, you may not like her but you can’t argue with results.

    • I don’t care much for recent Madonna either, but they had “young and hot” last year, with the Black Eyed Peas. PS…the halftime show blew. HARD.

  • People wish they had her money…that is why they don’t like her. This woman is worth a lot and knows how to play the game. Hell she has been in the business since the 80′s.

  • I personally would really enjoy seeing Madonna perform the halftime show @ the SuperBowl. She has earned it. I believe it was Susan Sarandon that stated that women of rock could be divided into 2 categories…those before Madonna and those after Madonna.

  • What decade is this again? Look, sure she’s probably the most influential female pop star of all time, but her time is over.

  • It seems like a weird fit. I love 80′s Madonna, but her recent stuff is total crap. As long as she sticks to the older songs it’ll be awesome.

  • Seriously? Talk about the wrong marketing approach. they would be better off having no halftime show. Thankfully other networks have been counter programming against the halftime show for years.
