Lenny Kravitz Added To Katy Perry’s Super Bowl Halftime Performance
Katy Perry’s upcoming Super Bowl XLIX halftime show just got a legendary upgrade.
The pop star announced yesterday that none other than Lenny Kravitz would joining her onstage for the coveted performance set on Feb. 1. Dropping the bomb during the AFC playoff game between the New England Patriots and the Baltimore Ravens, Perry gave the scoop to NBC.
"My first special guest is going to be an incredible rock & roll icon, a guitar god," she said. “He’s the coolest!”
Perry only noted that Kravitz was her first special guest, which means she may have more tricks up her sleeve. The move follows the theme of several previous Super Bowl halftime shows that have featured the pairing of modern stars with legends, including Madonna’s appearance with M.I.A. and Nicki Minaj (2012), as well as the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ performance with Bruno Mars (2014).
