Katy Perry Scores Super Bowl Gig + Top 5 Super Bowl Performances
Sorry Rihanna and Coldplay, it’s Katy Perry who will rock the half time show during the 2015 Super Bowl!
Earlier this year, it was rumored that KP, Ri Ri and Coldplay were all being considered for the coveted spot. But after Rihanna’s fall out with CBS (the network where the Super Bowl is aired) it was pretty obvious she was out of the running. While Katy nabbed the spot instead of Coldplay, we’re wondering what the terms around her deal include.
It was revealed that this year the NFL asked it’s performer “to contribute a portion of their post-Super Bowl tour income to the league, or if they would make some other type of financial contribution, in exchange for the halftime gig.” However, while visiting ESPN’s College Game Day Perry stated, “I’m not the kind of girl who would pay to play the Super Bowl.” Hmmm, maybe she changed her mind — or the NFL did. Either way, are you excited to see KP perform?
And speaking of the Super Bowl, here are our top five most memorable performances throughout the years.
