Why, it seems like just yesterday that the Seattle Seahawks were mopping the field at New Jersey’s MetLife stadium with the Denver Broncos, doesn’t it? It seems like just yesterday that Bruno Mars effortlessly danced his way across the stage during the halftime show, accompanied by veteran rockers The Red Hot Chili Peppers. And remember all those great Super Bowl commercials, from the Doritos Crash the Super Bowl submissions like “Finger Cleaner” to the pointlessly controversial Coca-Cola ad featuring people singing “America the Beautiful” in multiple languages? Sigh, what bittersweet nostalgia is conjured by gentle remembrances.
But hey, time moves on – Super Bowl XLVIII? You’re history – step aside and make way for…
Super Bowl XLIX, of course! The 49th Big Game is going to be held at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona on Sunday, February 1st, 2015, and if the rumors are true, it looks like none other than the buxom and leggy Katy Perry will be headlining the halftime show.
As of this writing, the ex-Mrs. Russell Brand has not been officially confirmed as the main act of Super Bowl XLIX, but we’re pretty confident that’s the way the wind is blowing – when asked about the arrangement, she has been demure, but has not denied anything. And she did recently call football her “new favorite sport.”
This means the heavily-lipsticked songstress has beaten out other big name big game headline contenders Coldplay and Rihanna (who may or may not have pretty much permanently ruined her chances of performing at a Super Bowl Halftime show when she sent out a rather acerbic Tweet aimed at CBS several weeks back. Hint: it rhymed with “Duck Shoe”).
While of course we can’t show you any footage from the halftime performance of Super Bowl XLIX for several months yet, we can perhaps give you a sense of what a Katy Perry halftime show will look like thanks to this clip (warning: there is lots of, um… air humping):
Ms. Perry will join the ranks of other famous females who have headlined the Big Game’s big show such as Madonna, Beyoncé, Shania Twain, and Diana Ross, to name a few. Will she live up to those past performances? We’ve only got a few months to wait before we find out.
