NEW YORK (AP) — Will Katy Perry be a firework at the Super Bowl? Will she show them what she’s worth? Will she let her colors burst?
NFL announced late Sunday — after rumors swirled for weeks — that the pop star will headline the Pepsi Super Bowl halftime show on Feb. 1 at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Arizona. It will air on NBC.
Perry, 30, has dominated the Billboard charts since releasing her debut in 2008, including nine No. 1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Her sophomore effort, 2010’s multiplatinum “Teenage Dream,” matched the record Michael Jackson set with “Bad” for most songs from a single album to hit No. 1 with five.
Perry released “Prism,” another platinum effort, last year. It includes the No. 1 smashes “Roar” and “Dark Horse.”
