Katy Perry: Twitter Users Want A ‘Wardrobe Malfunction’ During Super Bowl Performance

Katy Perry has been confirmed to perform at the Super Bowl XLIX halftime show, and there are a lot of people on Twitter who are hoping for her to have a “wardrobe malfunction” like Janet Jackson did in 2004.

According to a report from the New York Post, Perry was one of many artists rumored to perform during the halftime show, others including the likes of Coldplay and Rihanna. But a source close to Perry says that the NFL is moving forward with the “Roar” singer.

“A deal is being hammered out for Katy to play the Super Bowl,” the source said.

The New York Post report points out parents do not need to worry about Perry pulling some unethical stunt like Janet Jackson’s “wardrobe malfunction” in 2004, or when M.I.A. flipped the bird to the audience in 2012.

“Perry’s bubble-gum pop brand could certainly sweeten the image of a league that’s been rocked by bad press this season over domestic abuse and questions regarding player safety,” the report says.

Back in August, Billboard columnist Jason Lipshutz listed five reasons why it would be possible that Katy Perry could perform during the Super Bowl halftime show. Along with having several hit songs, being family-friendly, and having 58.1 million followers on Twitter, Katy also isn’t performing any shows in 2015 until February 16. The Super Bowl is on February 1.

“She has a big gap in her tour dates around the Super Bowl,” Lipshutz writes

But there are some on Twitter who are not too happy about Katy Perry being selected for the 2015 Super Bowl.

And there were quite a few who are hoping to see Perry have a “wardrobe malfunction” during her performance.

A recent article from The Inquisitr stated Perry expressed interest in performing during the halftime show, but she didn’t want to spend her own money to do so. During an appearance on ESPN’s College Gameday, Perry explained that if the NFL wanted her to perform during the ceremony, they would have to drop their “pay-to-play” model.

“I’m not the kind of girl who would pay to play the Super Bowl,” she said.
