Katy Perry makes a few jokes about the Super Bowl teams

Published Add your comment

We are just days away from Super Bowl XLIX and all eyes are on the men representing the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks in Arizona.

With names like Tom Brady, Marshawn Lynch, Rob Gronkowski and Richard Sherman dominating the front pages, there was one person everyone seems to have forgotten about.

The Super Bowl half-time show is always a point of interest when it comes to the big game with some of the most popular stars in the world being paid large amounts of money for relatively short appearances.

The Super Bowl is a grand spectacle and it could be argued that the game can take a back seat to the half-time show.

This year's performer is the huge name of Katy Perry and the superstar has been speaking to the media ahead of her highly anticipated half-time performance.

Rather than just talking about her music and what to expect from the show however, Perry has used the media attention to fire a few friendly shots at some of the stars who will be playing in this Sunday's Super Bowl.

Firstly targeting Seattle runningback Marshawn Lynch whose interviewing tactics are somewhat questionable, Perry simply claimed "I'm just here so I don't get fined."

But that wasn't enough for Perry whose football jokes went even further and crossed over to the Patriots.

"nothing in my performance will be deflated."

Clearly showing her well known football knowledge, Perry is set to give football fans a great spectacle when she takes the stage on Sunday night.

Controversy and songs

The build up to Super Bowl XLIX has been made up of two very different weeks.

The week immediately following the AFC and NFC Championship matches was dominated by the Patriots and deflate-gate.

Claiming that the Patriots used deflated balls when they overcame the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Championship game was all anybody could talk about.

Fortunately, once the Pro-Bowl was out of the way, all the focus moved onto the football and media day gave us all a lot to ponder.

Patriots tight-end Rob Gronkowski was one of several players who were caught singing one of Perry's songs for the cameras as the singer has clearly impacted the Super Bowl already.
