Katy Perry Reveals Super Bowl Halftime Show Special Guest & He's Rock 'n Roll Royalty
For the past couple of months, everyone's been wondering who Katy Perry's Super Bowl halftime show guest would be and finally, the wait is over. Sorry to be a tease, Rihanna fans, but as far anyone knows, Rih Rih has yet to sign on to join her bestie on stage for the event. However, Perry nabbing Lenny Kravitz as her Super Bowl halftime special guest should make up for it, right? At first glance, they seem like an unlikely pair and according to Perry they have yet to work out the set list, but both singers bring a ton of energy to the stage so this show shouldn't be anything short of amazing.
MTV reports Perry broke the news of her upcoming Super Bowl collaboration with the "American Woman" singer on Saturday during the Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots football game, telling NBC's Willie Geist, "My first special guest is going to be an incredible rock and roll icon, a guitar god. I’m going to have Lenny Kravitz on the show!" Perry continued, "He’s got so much style. He’s the coolest. He’s the King of cool. He’s going to make me so much cooler that day."
Who can argue with that?
Anyway, sporting events evidently have an unusual effect on the "Dark Horse" singer, judging by this insanely hilarious appearance Perry made on ESPN's College GameDay . That said, she's very capable of keeping the audience well-entertained, even if they are a little weirded out in the process. My only concern is that Kravitz doesn't steal the show. According to his website, the 50-year-old singer's set to go on tour in March, but it appears that the halftime performance will be Kravitz's biggest show since the iTunes Festival in September. In playing at one of the world's most-watched events, I expect him to give 110 percent.
No matter what goes down on the stage on Feb. 1, Perry, Kravitz and whoever else she invites to join her are sure to give last year's incredible performance by Bruno Mars a run for its money.
