Did Lady Gaga “beat out” Britney Spears for the Super Bowl Halftime Show gig? A report claims Gaga defeated her fellow pop star and scored a “big win.” Gossip Cop has the real story.

The National Enquirer writes on its website, “Lady Gaga will be doing the coveted Halftime Show at the 2017 Super Bowl — despite her new single being one of the year’s biggest flops.” According to the outlet, Gaga “still beat out” Spears because “Britney blew her Super Bowl bid by being too desperate.” A so-called “insider” is quoted as telling the publication, “It’s embarrassing. Britney wants to make a comeback so badly, but she’s not in demand like the Adeles and the Beyonces of the world.”

The magazine goes on to note, “Britney also had to win over the NFL after a cringe-inducing and lip-synched performance at the recent MTV Video Music Awards.” Not once, though, is it actually said how Spears acted “desperate” to get the Super Bowl job. That’s because she never did.

Spears was never in serious talks to be the 2017 Super Bowl Halftime performer. In fact, Gossip Cop was told that she wasn’t in negotiations by a reliable contact long before Gaga won the opportunity. How could Gaga “beat out” someone who wasn’t in contention in the first place?

Quite simply, she didn’t. Gaga got the gig on her own merits. It had nothing to do with Spears “blowing her Super Bowl bid,” because that never happened.
