If the rumors are to be believed, Katy Perry has been tapped as a performer for the Super Bowl XLIX Hafltime Show.

Reports that the NFL would now require Super Bowl performers to pay starting this year surfaced recently. But, if Perry is indeed the Super Bowl XLIX Hafltime Show she probably didn’t pay for it.

“I’m not the kind of girl who would pay to play the Super Bowl,” she said during an appearance on ESPN’s College Game Day over the weekend.

Perry was among the list of rumored artists that the NFL was supposedly considering earlier this year. Coldplay and Rihanna were also named as potential performers.

Bruno Mars and Beyonce were the last two Super Bowl halftime performers.
