A message from Katy:
Today is #DayoftheGirl and I just learned about a shocking statistic from UNICEF that I believe deserves the world’s attention – one in four girls aged 15-19 has experienced physical violence at the hands of another person. Violence against girls is NOT OK and under no circumstances should it be tolerated. Whether it’s you, someone you know, or someone you’ve never met - no girl deserves to experience violence. I want you to join me in being a champion for all girls, everywhere. Say no more to victim blaming; no more to turning a blind eye. Let’s all use our voices to #ENDviolence against girls.

Katy Perry Performing at Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show ]

Katy Perry will perform at this year’s Super Bowl halftime show, sources have confirmed with Billboard

Perry’s performance has been speculated since August after the National Football League had reportedly shortlisted her along with Coldplay and Rihanna, who saw the use of her song “Run This Town” with Jay-Z axed in a segment during the wake of the Ray Rice scandal. 

The news of those three contenders also came with word the league was asking those artists under consideration to pay to play, since last year’s broadcast drew a record-setting 111.5 million viewers and previous performers have all seen significant boosts in sales, touring and public profile. 

In response, appearing on ESPN’s College Game Day this past Saturday, Perry said, “I’m not the kind of girl who would pay to play the Super Bowl.” 

With previous speculation, Billboard reported a number of good reasons for Perry to play the big stage, including her current hits, her (mostly) family-friendly catalog, and her international popularity (her 58.1 million Twitter followers make her the most popular presence on the social site).

The NFL has declined to comment.
