Katy Perry has been under speculation to perform at the Super Bowl Halftime show…
…and I have to tell you that the rumor is true!
Katy Perry is the most popular artist in the world because she has the largest social media following of anyone! Specifically where social media matters when it comes to music…she has 58.2 million followers on Twitter! 😀
Last year the Super Bowl was viewed in 111.5 million living rooms around the world! With a record setting number like that, Katy Perry’s press will be taken to a whole new level!
I can’t even imagine the amount of tweets that will happen that night! Hopefully more tweets than the infamous VMAs moment with Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke!
Katy Perry said in a public statement: “I’m not the kind of girl who would pay to play the Super Bowl.” So I guess she’s saying that for her social media presence, they will pay her! 🙂
Other reasons for Katy to play the Super Bowl include her girly-girl persona, her family friendly music, and the fact that she has so many hit songs that the world can sing along with!
This won’t be Katy’s first rodeo with football because just last Saturday she was the “guest picker” on ESPN’s College Gameday which is watched by A LOT of people!!!
She even tweeted that she would be there:
So thousands more people that would probably never even watch College Gameday did and they’re saying that she really increased the viewership and the publicity for the show! 😀
Katy is the queen of social media attention and anyone, including ESPN and the Super Bowl, would be lucky to have her for the publicity she brings alone!
Super Bowl XLIX (49) will be held in Glendale, Arizona at the Cardinals stadium on February 1st, 2015 and I’m always rooting for my New Orleans Saints to make it to the big game!
Congratulations Katy on the halftime show & I can’t wait to see your performance!
