Could she be “Ready for It?”
Taylor Swift fans — also known as Swifties — think the NFL just alluded to the possibility that the 32-year-old singer-songwriter may play next year’s Super Bowl LVII halftime show.
The league didn’t namedrop any acts in a press release issued Friday to announce that Apple Music will now sponsor the halftime show, but it did drop the release at midnight.
The “Lover” songstress released both her 2020 pandemic albums “Folklore” and “Evermore” at that time and has included the word “midnight” in her lyrics for years.
To top the theory off, her ninth album “Midnights” drops on Oct. 21.
Swift is famous for her Easter eggs — subtle or complex hints about upcoming projects for fans to put together to come up with their own theories on what could be coming next from the superstar.
Another interesting observation is that Pepsi pulled out of its longtime Halftime Show sponsorship last year, an endeavor Apple Music will now take on. Swift has been locked into a sponsorship with Coca-Cola since 2013, so Pepsi’s departure may mean now is the time for Swift to book the gig, fans suggested.
Additionally, the “This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things” singer wrote an open letter to Apple Music in June 2015, telling Apple CEO Tim Cook that she was disappointed that the then-new streaming service wouldn’t compensate artists for the streams users racked up during their three-month trial.
Her letter had an impact, as Apple quickly announced it would indeed be paying artists for their music during the free period, if at a reduced rate, which is similar to other services.
A year later, Swift showed that there was no “Bad Blood” between her and the tech giant when she appeared in multiple Apple Music commercials.
The Post has reached out to reps for Swift and the NFL.
The Super Bowl LVII is slated for Feb. 12, 2023, at the State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
