Get ready for kittens, a time-machine that teleports in another performer, and glitter -- possibly edible. It's been confirmed by the NFL and Pepsi that pop star Katy Perry will be the halftime performer at the 2015 Super Bowl. Perry tweeted about it from Australia, where she's on her Prismatic World Tour, while watching the New York Giants/Dallas Cowboys football game.
There had been speculation that the NFL was considering charging entertainers to perform during the coveted halftime event, but Perry told ESPN, "I'm not the kind of girl who would pay to play the Super Bowl." And she won't have to, according to Entertainment Weekly.
Perry beat out Coldplay and Rihanna, who were both on a shortlist with Perry, and she'll be following last season's Beyoncé, whose performance drew in a record 111.5 million viewers, according to Variety, making it the most-watched TV event in history.
Super Bowl 2015 will take place Feb. 1, 2015, at the University of Phoenix in Glendale, Arizona, and it will be broadcast worldwide.
