Katy Perry promoted her upcoming 2015 Super Bowl halftime show today, revealing that in addition to Lenny Kravtiz, she’s also bringing out an old-school female artist. Find out who’ll hit the stage inside…
“Dark Horse” singer Katy Perry hosted a press conference today where she hyped her upcoming halftime performance at the 2015 Super Bowl and dropped an interesting tidbit. When asked if she had any surprises in store, she said her show would feature an “old school” female artist. “It’s a bit old school. But I think when this person enters the stage and you hear the first ring of the chord, I think jaws will drop and faces will melt.”
Following Katy’s press conference, numerous outlets began speculating about the “artist” and then the levee broke….it’s Missy Elliott!
A person speaking to the AP on condition of anonymity revealed that the “old school” artist is indeed Missy Elliott. Fans of the two will recall that they previously worked together on Katy’s song “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” in 2011.
While Missy’s participation was not officially announced by the NFL (cause it’s a “surprise”), we hope she is sitting somewhere getting her fingerwaves on fleek. In addition to the “Beep Me 911” rapstress, we can also expect to see sexy rocker Lenny Kravitz hit the stage with Katy too……maybe they’ll perform “American Woman”? SIDEBAR: Is Missy Elliott really OLD school? The 90s weren’t that long ago. It’s not like Katy is bringing out the Sugar Hill Gang. #noshade
