So far, the NFL has not commented on a report by that Madonna will give the world her best 10 minutes at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis Feb. 5. The sports site based its report on “sources close to the event.”

This isn’t the first time Madonna has been mentioned for the Super Bowl halftime show. SBNation points out she was the rumored performer for Super Bowl XXXIII in Miami in 1998, but a deal was never reached. The site also says there was talk she would headline the 2000 show but she reportedly declined.

In 2004, Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake played the Super Bowl XXXVIII halftime show at Houston’s Reliant Stadium resulting in the “wardrobe malfunction” seen around the world.
