It wasn’t exactly the best kept secret in town, but the cat is officially now out of the proverbial bag. Katy Perry is putting on the halftime show at Super Bowl XLIX. The 30-year-old singer was an early frontrunner for the gig.

Though early reports suggested the NFL was hoping to score a cut of the performer’s post-Bowl revenue, it appears Perry won’t be paying to play at the most-watched TV event of the year. Bravo for Katy for not caving in. It’s not like the league is hurting for money.

Now that everything is official, Perry is already in promotional mode. A video clip hyping up the performance has been released. Check it out below.

As she infamously sang previously, “A diva is a female version of a hustler,” and hustle she did. Beyonce worked her ass off last year and it paid off. She tops Forbes annual list of the Top Earning Women In Music. She takes over Madonna who earned Forbes’ honor last year with $125 million. Surprisingly, Madge didn’t make the Top 10 cut on this year’s list.

With Queen Bey’s multi-platinum surprise album, successful solo and joint tour which consisted of 95 concerts, along with lucrative endorsement deals with H&M and Pepsi, she raked in a whopping $115 million over the past 12 months. Her most successful year to date. The 33-year-old mogul generated almost doubled what the runner-up earned. Check out the rest of the Top 10 below.

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.

Man Crush: Lockhart Brownlie

In: Donovan, Totally GAY!

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a Man Crush feature. Apologies for that. What prompted me to resurrect my man candy series? It’s actually two-fold.

Firstly, it’s because I checked out Katy Perry’s Prismatic World Tour last night. I’m not a hardcore KatyCat by any means, but I have to give credit where credit is due. The “Roar” singer slayed it. She put on a better show than I expected, charming the raucous crowd quite nicely. To boot, she was accompanied by several sexy male backup dancers. Lockhart Brownlie being one of them.

This Aussie dancer might just give Britney Spears’ Willie Gomez a run for his money as my favorite backup dancer. Dude is fiiiiiiiiiine and captivated us whenever he was in the vicinity. Dat azz is just mesmerizing ;)

Another reason why I chose to put the spotlight on the 24-year-old has to do with that rumored Taylor Swift-Katy Perry feud. Earlier this week, Swift cryptically talked about a fellow female singer who tried to sabotage her Red Tour, inspiring Swift to write “Bad Blood.”

In an interview from last year, Lockhart pretty much confirms the “Shake It Off” singer’s claims that some of her dancers jumped ship to join Perry’s tour. Be sure to read Brownlie’s interview with the Examiner for more details. In the meantime, check out several photos of Lockhart (love that name) below, showing off that chiseled body of his.

Taylor Swift is at it again. However, this time instead of dissing an ex-lover, the 24-year-old throws shade at a fellow female singer on a new track.

Naturally, Swift isn’t divulging exactly who it is, but fans are speculating it’s either Miley Cyrus or Katy Perry. My money is on Perry since there’s that nasty John Mayer connection. Nothing fuels a girl catfight more than a common beau. Read below what Swift told Billboard magazine about “Bad Blood” off her forthcoming album, 1989.

“For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not. She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, ‘Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?’” Swift, 24, told the Billboard. “[Then last year] she did something so horrible. I was like, ‘Oh, we’re just straight-up enemies.’ And it wasn’t even about a guy!”

The MTV Video Music Awards take place at The Forum in Inglewood, California Sunday night. By far, the ‘moonman’ for Video Of The Year is the most prestigious one that everyone wants. Iggy Azalea (“Fancy”), Beyonce (“Drunk In Love”), Miley Cyrus (“Wrecking Ball”), Sia (“Chandelier”) and Pharrell Williams (“Happy”) are all in contention for the big award.

Even though Bey leads with the most nominations, my money is on either Iggy or Sia to take home the prize. Whoever wins will join an illustrious group of past winners which includes Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Rihanna.

Check out their winning offerings below along with some others that aren’t so easy to recall. Remember Panic! At The Disco? Weigh in below on which ones are your favorites and your prediction on who’ll reign supreme this year.

Snagging the Super Bowl Halftime Show is a huge honor for any musician. The exposure is priceless and that’s why the NFL historically hasn’t paid any of the acts to perform. With the telecast breaking new ratings records on a yearly basis, the revenue artists generate after their performance is also rising. The league now wants a piece of that lucrative pie. #greedymofos

According to a new report by the Wall Street Journal, the NFL has already “asked at least some of the acts if they would be willing to contribute a portion of their post-Super Bowl tour income to the league, or if they would make some other type of financial contribution, in exchange for the halftime gig.” Unsurprisingly, the proposal has received lackluster responses from the contenders’ representatives. Find out which three acts are the reported frontrunners for the gig below.
