Report: Katy Perry to play Super Bowl halftime show
Perry was on the NFL’s shortlist for the halftime show along with Rihanna and Coldplay, according to an August report from the Wall Street Journal. The twist, however, was that the NFL was reportedly asking the artists to “pay to play,” specifically if they “would be willing to contribute a portion of their post-Super Bowl tour income to the league, or if they would make some other type of financial contribution, in exchange for the halftime gig.”
The NFL had no comment on the reports. A representative for Perry did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
