Katy Perry Scores Super Bowl Gig + Top 5 Super Bowl Performances

Published

on

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.

And while there’s nothing wrong with an honesty inquiry, it was the way he asked the question that was off-putting. But, it didn’t stop there.

Charlamange, along to co-host, DJ Envy, repeatedly asked the reality star what was her “struggle”, ignorantly assuming that colorism isn’t a thing anymore because of all the advancements in the entertainment industry that have occurred. Yet, and still, you don’t see artist of Amara’s hue celebrated on any Latina platform such as Univision or Telemundo. The host, with the exception of Angela Yee, then proceeded to deduce Amara’s issue to being a problem that’s “all in (her) head”, even referencing the success of Cardi B. as evidence of La Negra’s delusion. You have to watch this to believe it…
