We are in Michael Jackson territory at this point.

Katy Perry is taking her fireworks to the Super Bowl stage.

Billboard and Page Six have both confirmed with sources that the singer will perform during Super Bowl XLIX halftime show in Arizona on Feb. 1, 2015.

Perry is the first female artist to have five No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 singles from the same album (Michael Jackson comes in second).

She is also the most popular person on Twitter with 58.1 million followers.

I hope you hang yourself with your H&M scarf
While jacking off listening to Mozart

Where are the They Live-style headphones that allow people to hear/remember this right before they click Buy This Song on her next manufactured masterpiece? Ah, 2007, when it was still...okay to...gay-bash? But no, "Firework" excuses all. It's a gay anthem!

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/11/07/fashion/07ANTHEM.html
For some, however, there is a whiff of opportunism behind the artists’ good intentions. Ke$ha and Ms. Perry, who started their careers as irreverent party girls, suffered from a credibility problem early on. Eyes rolled in particular at Ms. Perry’s first single, “Ur So Gay,” a jab at image-conscious straight men that many critics said was homophobic, and at her breakout hit, “I Kissed a Girl,” an ode to bisexuality that the lesbian singer Beth Ditto of the Gossip called “offensive to gay culture.”

Michael Jackson might have been a deeply flawed, troubled person too, but I remember Michael Jackson songs.

Ted Cohen, 1 hour ago

"I was wrong about Katy Perry, saw her very early, she was very awkward & nervous. She has truly blossomed."

So even TC was unsure. Interesting.

Takes courage to put on a show like that. I was afraid she was gonna fall off the tiger, or suffer a nip slip or some other calamity.

The music didn't grab me, but maybe those catchy pop songs need a studio production.

That first costume she wore was the most hideous outfit I've seen since I was rockin' plaid Toughskins back in the late 70's.
