According to several media outlets including Billboard, the answer is ‘yes.’ Katy Perry reportedly beat out Coldplay and Rihanna to score the coveted gig taking place on Sunday, February 1 at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

A few weeks ago, rumors surfaced the league was asking performers to pay to play at the prestigious event. When asked recently about this she replied, “I’m not the kind of girl who would pay to play the Super Bowl.”

Good for her. Personally, I think it’s extremely shady for the NFL to ask musicians to pay to perform and also snag some of their post-Super Bowl tour income. Doesn’t the league earn enough money. I really hope Perry stood her ground and didn’t offer up a penny to the league. This would create an awful precedent.

What do you think of Perry holding down the fort at the 2015 Super Bowl? How do you think it’ll stack up to recent shows by Bruno Mars, Beyonce and Madonna. Do you think the NFL crossed the line by asking performers to pay? Weigh in below.

Saturday Night Live alum Jan Hooks is dead at the age of 57. No official cause of her death has been revealed, but TMZ reports that she had been battling a “serious illness.”

Hooks starred on the long-running sketch comedy show from 1986 to 1991, working alongside Dana Carvey and Phil Harman during one of the show’s glory periods. Her most memorable skits included celebrity impersonations of Kathie Lee Gifford, Hillary Clinton, Tammy Faye Baker and Sinead O’Connor. But it was the combo duo of Nora Dunn and herself as the hilarious Sweeney Sisters that is most beloved.

After her stint on SNL, Jan appeared on Designing Women, 3rd Rock From The Sun and 30 Rock. Her big screen credits include Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure and Coneheads. Our condolences go out to her family and friends. Check out some of her memorable moments on SNL below.

The Maze Runner trilogy won’t be following in the footsteps of similar franchises like The Hunger Games, Divergent and Twilight. Thank God finally someone had the balls to buck this annoying trend of splitting the final chapter into two films. We all know splitting them is not about storytelling but rather about milking theater goers.

“I think three is the number; beginning, middle, end, that’s it. Four? I think there’s something off about four. For me, if I have any say in it, there’s three movies basically,” director Wes Ball tells Digital Spy. “We’re not going to [split a book in two], no way. I think three movies is the right number, Star Wars!”

Sayonara Robyn!!! You’ve been replaced by Jamie McDermott. Scandinavian duo Royksopp has tapped The Irrepressibles frontman for their new track, “You Know I Have To Go.” The mesmerizingly mournful tune is just one of several collaborations featuring McDermott on their forthcoming album, The Inevitable End.

“The attraction and the doubt; the dilemma as whether to succumb to one’s feelings or not. The sheer length of the track is meant to illustrate the prolonging internal struggle between reason and lust,” Royksopp explains of their new song. Give the borderline depressing song a listen below. I quite like it, but I’m a sucker for sad songs when I’m in a melancholy mood. Who doesn’t?

Taking a page from his other series, Glee, Ryan Murphy will be uploading music from American Horror Story: Freak Show to iTunes. He revealed due to popular demand, a downloadable version of Jessica Lange’s cover of David Bowie’s “Life On Mars” will be available soon.

If you thought Lange’s performance on the premiere was fantastic, Murphy teases her Lana Del Rey cover featured in an upcoming episode will be “something to behold.” Kurt Cobain’s music will also be featured on the new season.

Did you watch the AHS: Freak Show premiere last night? I’m reserving full judgement after the next episode. The 90-minute premiere was a little too slow-paced for my liking. Also, Twisty the Clown wasn’t as scary as I had anticipated. Don’t get me wrong, he was creepy but he was a bit of a letdown after all the hype.

Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters and Lange were as fantastic as usual. Someone please give Paulson an Emmy statue please. It’s long overdue for her amazing work on the series. I can’t wait for the other ‘freaks’ to be introduced next episode which also happens to be 90 minutes long. Relive Lange’s performance below and share your thoughts on the premiere afterward.
