Britney Spears Under Negotiations to Perform in 2016 Super Bowl Halftime Show

By Florida Mae Acampado | 2 years ago

The year 2015 may have just started on its first few steps, but preparations for the 2016 Super Bowl are pretty much underway already. And in part of this, negotiations are reportedly going on to have Britney Spears on board to perform during halftime.

On Thursday, March 12, a source for the National Enquirer, as cited by, reported that with the current success of her performances in Las Vegas’ Planet Hollywood, Britney Spears is up and ready to do more. And judging from how things are going on, she’s most likely starting it off with the halftime performance for the 2016 Super Bowl next February.


“She’s definitely doing a part in the Super Bowl halftime show next year. The details haven’t totally been worked out yet, but it will be huge,” the source added.

Should Spears be signed up for next year’s Super Bowl halftime show, it will be counted as her second halftime show for the event after 15 years. Back in 2001, Spears was also on board to perform, alongside Mary J. Blige, Nelly, and the bands Aerosmith and ‘NSYNC. On the other hand, for next year’s Super Bowl, there are talks that she will be performing alongside Miley Cyrus, since they both have Larry Rudolph as their manager.

While talks for the Super Bowl are reportedly still going on, Spears is still heating up Las Vegas through her Planet Hollywood performances. In fact, Spears has already signed in an extension to her contract for the ‘Britney: Piece of Me’ shows and making it until 2017.

But for now, Spears is taking a break from her Las Vegas shows and has been spending her free-from-work days with her two boys – ayden and Preston. She has also been seen hanging out with her boyfriend Charlie Ebersol, her ex-husband and father of her children Kevin Federline, and her mother Lynne.
