Proving that Katy Perry truly has the eye of the tiger for world domination, the pop songstress will be performing at the Super Bowl XLIX halftime show, according to Page Six. While it's not officially confirmed, Perry was on the shortlist of candidates (amidst the likes of Coldplay and Rihanna), and just happened to drop by ESPN's College Game Day on Saturday to talk football— hot toddies and corndogs in tow, natch.

During the show, she knocked the NFL's alleged plan to have artists pay the league to perform at the show. "I'm not the kind of girl who would pay to play the Super Bowl," Perry insisted. And if her look from the appearance — a fuzzy jersey sweater, '90s choker, and raver knots — is any indication, Perry will surely have some decidedly tongue-in-cheek gameday attire. The Super Bowl airs February 1 on NBC.

In other news, we've learned that Adele will not be gracing us with an album until 2015. Despite hinting otherwise, her record label XL advises: "There will not be a further new release by Adele during 2014."

We can only hope that it's outright malarkey and the British songstress will pull a full-on Beyoncé and drop a record without warning. The holiday season is just around the bend, and we had every intention of seeking solace in new Adele offerings.
