A Britney Spears Super Bowl halftime show? It sounds too good to be true.
Big pop artists like Madonna, Lady Gaga and Rihanna have headlined the iconic Super Bowl halftime show over the years.
But a pop princess never headlined the show.
Of course, no one will ever forget when she was a surprise guest during one of the biggest Super Bowl halftime shows in history. But the question remains:
Will Britney Spears ever headline a solo Super Bowl halftime show?

Aerosmith headlines the halftime show and there are rumors that the surprise guest list is going to be crazy.
Steve Tyler and company are joined on stage by the likes of Mary J. Blige and Nelly, the boy band NSYNC, and the little pop princess named Britney Spears.
For more than two decades, fans have watched and rewatched Britney sing walk here along with Steven and her now ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake.
Unfortunately, that ended up being the first and last time, to date, that Britney performed at the Super Bowl.
Britney Spear's future in music
In recent years, Britney's music has taken a backseat to her legal battles to gain her freedom.
For almost 13 years, Britney's actions, both professionally and personally, were overseen through a conservatorship, which was run by her father Jamie Spears.
After a lengthy trial, Britney was finally granted release from conservatorship in 2021.
Once free to speak her mind, Britney revealed that for years she had desperately wanted to sing music of her own choosing, including remixes of her hits. Every creative suggestion she had, she says, was rejected.
“I asked for 13 years to perform new songs and remixes of my old songs,” he wrote on Instagram at the time.
“I had two months off between sets for four years in Las Vegas, and every time I asked they said 'No'!!! “It was a setup to make me fail, but I knew exactly what I wanted my fans to see.”
These days, it's unclear if Britney will once again give fans what they want to see.
Since gaining his freedom, he has released some new music, but no full album. And when asked if he would ever act again, she insisted that he doesn't think that will happen again.
Which brings us to…
Will Britney Spears ever headline a Super Bowl halftime show?
The short answer is that it will take a LOT of convincing for Britney.
But she has to be aware of how much the fans want it!
Returning to the 2001 show, in 2022, Britney relived her glory days by sharing a clip from the walk here performance on his Instagram. She didn't say much about the throwback, but she showed some love with some rose emojis in the caption.
But fans in the comments went crazy and begged him to perform at the Super Bowl.
Even singer Willie Gomez commented: “THE BEST!! You have to go back and title it, that would be EPIC.”
There were rumors that by 2023, he was even in talks to do it. Some reports were shared and suggested that she approached Madonna and Iggy Azealia to perform with her.
But, as everyone knows now, Rihanna and her unborn child ended up headlining the show in 2023. Usher will headline in 2024.
Still, what do they say: never say never? Perhaps with enough time to heal, you will feel the need to walk that way again.
And when you do, consider all plans cancelled. The Princess of Pop will receive ALL our attention.
