Katy Perry paid a lot of money to get her slot at the Super Bowl half time show. Is a thing that some people might say. But they shouldn’t, because she didn’t.

As previously reported, it was reported last year that Super Bowl maker the NFL had been proposing that performers might like to fork out to perform at their annual advertising festival. However, as she was announced as the artist to take this year’s musical slot, Perry said that she is “not the kind of girl who would pay to play the Super Bowl”.

Yeah, pay money to stand on stage dissing Taylor Swift while Lenny Kravitz wiggles around behind you? That doesn’t sound like something that would be worth paying for at all.

“I put my foot down very early in the courtship”, Perry has now told The Associated Press. “I said, ‘Look guys, here’s where I draw a line in the sand’. I want to be invited on my own merits and not with some fine print. I don’t even care if my contract leaks. I have nothing to hide, basically”.

Woah! Who mentioned contracts leaking? You can protest too much, you know. She also said that “maybe there is no better person” for the job, because of all the empowering and uplifting of people she does with her music.

Thankfully, we’re only a few weeks away from not having to talk about this anymore now.
