Paradise? Coldplay gets Super Bowl gig

Sorry, Taylor Swift, but Coldplay is headlining the Super Bowl halftime show.

The British rock group, loved by some and ridiculed by others, won the highest-profile musical gig in show biz. Pop star Bruno Mars also is on the bill, and negotiations are ongoing for a guest spot by Beyoncé. Speculation had been heavy that Swift would be the NFL’s choice.

Katy Perry starred in the most-watched Super Bowl halftime show in history earlier this year, when more than 118 million viewers tuned in to see her perform with Lenny Kravitz and her now-famous dancing sharks.

The game is set for Feb. 7 at Levi’s Stadium. If this is the lineup, the NFL and CBS should have no concerns about wardrobe malfunctions.
