(Newser) – "It's not an illusion. The rumors are true. This year the SUPER BOWL goes GAGA," Lady Gaga tweeted on Thursday. The NFL and Pepsi confirmed that Lady Gaga will star in the halftime show next Feb. 5 at NRG Stadium in Houston, the AP reports. Gaga, whose new album "Joanne" comes out Oct 21, sang the national anthem at Super Bowl 50 last February. Beyonce and Coldplay were among the halftime performers at that game and the NFL says it will again give fans a "halftime experience worthy of pop-culture's biggest stage." The league has gone back to using Roman numerals, so the 51st Super Bowl will be called Super Bowl LI. (Gaga is now banned in China.)
