Report: Katy Perry will play halftime at Super Bowl XLIX

According to a report from the New York Post Katy Perry will perform at halftime of Super Bowl XLIX.

Perry recently appeared on College GameDay, successfully picking Ole Miss to upset Alabama and then was later reportedly seen partying near The Grove.

She could be headed to an even bigger stage.

“A deal is being hammered out for Katy to play the Super Bowl,” a source told The Post

During a recent ESPN interview, Perry said she's "not the kind of girl who would pay to play the Super Bowl."

There were reports the NFL wanted artists to pony up to play the big game.

Clearly if Perry's caved, that's not the case. 

Some people will be down on Perry, but that's what people do. Perry's a good choice that can bridge generational gaps and provide a pop-fueled halftime show.
