This season's Super Bowl halftime show isn't looking too promising. Eccentric pop singer Katy Perry is the front runner to provide halftime entertainment.
The NFL's shortlist for the show resembles some sort of triumvirate of evil with the American songstress joining umbrella advocate Rihanna and insomnia curers Coldplay as the artists most likely to perform at the University of Phoenix Stadium for the massive event next February.
It seems the NFL are continuing the trend of hiring young, contemporary pop acts after the success of last year's halftime performances by Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers which drew 11.5 million viewers worldwide, setting a ratings record.
Interesting to note that Katy has stated before that she has no intention of ever performing at the Super Bowl. This might change when the powers that be in the NFL start hurling fat stacks at her.
I’m not the kind of girl who would pay to play the Super Bowl.
If Perry does turn down the offer, there is a possibility that world will be treated to a Celebrity Death Match type scenario where Rihanna and Coldplay are forced to slug it out in order to get that headline slot. In fact, the NFL should be seriously considering the idea of making the brawl the halftime show. Now that would be entertaining.
