Britney Spears Reportedly Open To Performing At This Year's Super Bowl

Another Britney Spears Super Bowl performance? The pop singer is reportedly open to the idea.

Britney Spears, one of the biggest pop stars in the world, is dropping a new album on Friday - it's titled Glory. And if the singer has her way, she might be performing some songs from it on the grandest stage of them all - the Super Bowl. It'd be the second Britney Spears Super Bowl performance - she performed with Aerosmith, 'N Sync, Mary J. Blige and Nelly back in 2001.

Spears did an interview with BBC Radio on Wednesday and made it very clear that she'd love to be involved with this year's big game. She doesn't want to do the show solo, however.

Here's the quote, via radio.com:

In a new interview on BBC Radio this morning (August 24), Spears said she would definitely be interested. “Yes, I would probably do that,” she said, adding that she’d need a bit of help to pull it off. “Definitely not on my own,” she explained. “I would have to have a little support there. Another artist, of course. I don’t think you would ever do the Super Bowl alone, that would be kind of scary. I don’t think I would be able to do it.”

Spears' willingness to do the show is in complete contrast to fellow pop star Adele's attitude regarding the topic. Adele last week told her fans that the NFL asked her to perform, but she declined.

To be clear, there is no word on whether the NFL has even approached Spears. But at least if it does, it knows it'll get a positive response.

Spears, now 34 years old, is one of the most successful artists from the early 2000s. Her first two efforts - ...Baby One More Time and Oops!... I Did It Again have sold a combined 24 million albums.

This year's Super Bowl - Super Bowl LI - is set to take place on February 5, 2017 at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas.
