Unlike the lame halftime show from last year featuring Bruno Mars and Red Hot Chili Peppers … Katy Perry rocked the hell out of yesterday afternoon’s Super Bowl XLIX‘s, halftime show–dazzling the crowd with impeccable production and a bubblegum pop, tongue-in-cheek performance–there was truly something for everyone. Here are seven reasons why our favorite “California Gurl” deserves all the credit due …
EXCUSE ME BUT WAS THAT A TIGER? OK KATHERINE. WHAT KIND OF HELEN OF TROY TEASE. I CAN’T.
A ROCK N’ ROLL VERSION OF “I KISSED A GIRL” FEATURING LENNY KRAVITZ AND A FLAMING HOT CHEETO KNOWN AS KATY PERRY:
WHEN KATY PUT MILEY TO SHAME #BOOTY
THESE DANCING SHARKS. OH AND A WARDROBE CHANGE:
THESE DEPRESSED BEACH BALLS. SAD NO MORE, KATY IS HERE!
MISSY ‘MISDEMEANOR’ ELLIOTT. NEED I SAY MORE? KIDS WHO DON’T KNOW WHO MISSY IS … SORRY YOU CAN’T SIT WITH US! OH AND ANOTHER WARDOBE CHANGE:
A FIREWORK FINALE. LITERALLY. KATY ASCENDED INTO THE NIGHT SKY DONNING A CUSTOM MOSCHINO GOWN BY DESIGNER JEREMY SCOTT. AND THE ROCKETS RED GLARE, THE BOMBS BURSTING IN AIR, GAVE PROOF THROUGH THE NIGHT THAT KATY WAS THERE
All in all, this years’ show was just that, and furthermore, a spectacle in its own right. While remaining family friendly, Ms. Perry delivered a flaw-free, perfectly executed show with a wide variety of entertainment factors. Katy was fine, fresh and fierce, bringing her own eclectic style while staying true to the sugary-sweet sexiness we have all come to adore. Any who disagrees can sit and spin, bye haters. #PERRYBOWL
