Katy Perry Holds Super Bowl Press Conference, Promises “Lighthearted” Half Time Performance: 13 Pics
Katy Perry‘s been tasked with what will be one of the most-watched performances of her career: The NFL Super Bowl XLIX halftime show.
And, in the grand tradition of all the artists that have come before her, the Prism princess held a press conference to discuss the upcoming performance with the media — and also Thin Mint cookies. And her dog. And take selfies. And a million other things, too.
“I don’t think I’m so much of an expert on the game of football, but I think I can assure everyone that nothing in my performance will be deflated,” Perry sassed while talking to reporters, referencing the recent #Deflategate controversy. She also teased a little bit about what to expect from her performance, which she describes as “lighthearted” — including some rather unusual, uh, props: “I think I’m probably the only person in Super Bowl halftime history that will ever bring both a lion and sharks to the show.” And a surprise guest! (Who we now know to reportedly be Missy Elliott.) She also made another sassy football reference — “I’m just here so I won’t get fined” — in reference to player Marshawn Lynch.
For a pop princess, she sure charmed the sports crowd! Are you excited for her performance? Watch her full press conference down below, and check out a bunch of shots from the media event up top.
