Not pleased with the Super Bowl halftime entertainment, there’s a live petition, calling for a trade: Lady Gaga for Migos.

As Lady Gaga arrives in Houston, there are more than 51,000 signees would like to see the swap as of this writing. Since Donald Glover’s pronounced love for the group’s smash hit “Bad and Boujee” in his Golden Globe award acceptance speech, the Atlanta trio has skyrocketed into the cultural mainstream.

“Halftime should be Migos killing Bad and Boujee, Future kills em with March Madness, then Outkast comes out and does an AQUEMINI sampler and then they end it with BUN B and JAY Z DOING BIG PIMPIN!!!!” explains Justin G., a San Francisco producer and petition sponsor.

There’s more: Justin is suggesting a complete overhaul of musical guests.

Very Simple, the Atlanta Falcons are in the Super Bowl and it’s gonna be in Houston. Two of the TRILLEST hip-hop communities under ONE ROOF. Your entertainment choices have to change RIGHT NOW.

Preshow should be Rae Sremmurd, Gucci, Goodie Mob, Luda and Young Jeezy.

Young Thug needs to sing “Guwop Home”, the official anthem of Atlanta.

Andre 3000 should sing the national anthem with Erykah Badu. By sing I mean hit Donald Trump with a FIRE 64 bars.

For the “Million Reasons” singer’s part, relinquishing her time in the Super Bowl spotlight is slim to nil, explaining in an October interview with Fox Sports that she “just burst into tears” after the announcement.

“I just cried so hard. I just kept saying, ‘I can’t believe it, I can’t believe it.’ I’ve been planning this since I was 4, so I know exactly what I’m going to do,” she said.
