Super Bowl 50 may be CLXXI days away, but already there is no shortage of predictions for the dream matchup. Green Bay against New England, anyone?
No, we mean “Oops! … I Did It Again” versus “Blank Space” in the Really Big One. That would be the halftime extravaganza, the most prestigious gig in sports entertainment.
While NFL officials have been mum (a decision comes in October), occasionally reliable sources say Taylor Swift and Britney Spears are prime candidates. Certainly, the pop goddesses meet the basic requirements — both are enormously popular and neither is a serious candidate for a wardrobe malfunction.
As in recent years, this bash will be more than a one-act affair. If the league truly wants an oldie to link with the present and future, why not Elton John?
It so happens John is big fan of Swift, who wowed ‘em last weekend at Levi’s Stadium, where the game will be played Feb. 7. As Elton said of Tay, “Any artist with an amazing point of view, perspective, fan base, I am down to get in the studio and work. I do not discriminate.”
For now, take T-Swizzle and give the 1½ points.
