The Queen of Pop is rumoured to have ‘cleared her diary’ for the February 25th awards.
With Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith already announced as performers, this year’s Brit Awards is shaping up to be an unmissable ceremony. But things could be about to get even bigger and better, as none other than the Queen of Pop Madonna is rumoured to be joining the growing line-up.
Is Madonna headed to the Brit Awards?
The ‘Material Girl’ is said to be '99 percent confirmed' to perform, with a source telling the Mirror newspaper, “Madonna wants to perform to the biggest number of people for the maximum impact and there’s no better place for a controversy-filled Madonna performance than the Brits."
“She has already confirmed she will perform at the Grammys, when she will debut the new music. But her album is due out on March 9th, a month after the LA ceremony, so she wants another large platform to perform her songs on just before it is released,” the source added.
“She has cleared her diary for the Brits. She knows she needs to really entertain and bring a good show because she’ll want to be the talking point.”
A source for the awards however told the paper, “The final line-up is not yet confirmed.”
So far Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift and Sam Smith have already been confirmed for the ceremony, with Paloma Faith, George Ezra and Royal Blood also scheduled to perform.
If Madonna does decide to grace the Brits stage it will be her first time there since 1995, when she performed single ‘Bedtime Story’.
Things haven’t been going too smoothly for the Queen of Pop as of late, despite her being just under two months away from the release of her 13th album, Rebel Heart. The album first encountered trouble late last year when unmixed tracks leaked online. The leak caused Madonna to then rush release six songs from the album on iTunes in late December.
The singer then caused controversy when she posted images of Martin Luther King Jr and Nelson Mandela among others on Instagram, wrapped in her ‘Rebel Heart’ ribbon. This caused some to accuse the singer of comparing herself to the civil rights leaders with the images.
The 56 year old eventually offered an apology, writing on Facebook "I'm sorry I'm not comparing myself to anyone. I'm admiring and acknowledging [their] Rebel Hearts. This is neither a crime or an insult or racist! Also did it with Michael Jackson and Frida Khalo and Marilyn Monroe. Am I saying I am them NO. I'm saying they are Rebel Hearts too."
