Well, Super Bowl XLIX may have just found the solution, Katy Perry. The bubble-gum pop queen has been rumored to be performing at this years Super Bowl for quite some time. Now, it’s official.

The Super Bowl airs on February 1st on NBC. Page Six reports, an entertainment insider stated the following: “A deal is being hammered out for Katy to play the Super Bowl.” The halftime show is sponsored by Pepsi, which has previously worked with Perry to promote her film “Part of Me”.
