Now that we know Katy Perry will officially be performing at the 2015 halftime show, I'm starting to wonder how the show will go down. I imagine it'll be something whimsical, colorful, and possibly include food (see: "California Gurls," "This Is How We Do," "Birthday").
But will the performance itself include special guests, or will Katy fly solo? And if it does include special guests, will they make logical sense (like when Beyonce teamed up with Destiny's Child or Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson performed together), or will it be some kind of weird hodgepodge of performers (like Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, or the Aerosmith/'N Sync/Britney Spears/Mary J. Blige/Nelly line-up)?
Here are some of the people I'd love to make an appearance during Katy's halftime show.
#1 Kanye West
Because I'm a big Kanye fan, so I'd love it if he showed up during the halftime show to perform "E.T." with Katy Perry. But I know that probability is low. The song is relatively old, it wasn't that popular, Kanye's got his own stuff going on, and I'm not really sure playing second fiddle to Katy Perry is exactly in Kanye's wheelhouse. Still, an appearance by Yeezus isn't impossible... even if it is unlikely.
Over the weekend, it was confirmed that Katy Perry will be doing the halftime show at the 2015 Super Bowl. And she's already released a teaser (thanks, Pepsi) for what we can (kind of) expect. I'm rooting for the edible pink glitter idea.
What do you think Katy has in store for her halftime show?
Pitch Perfect 2
If you'd asked me if I ever thought a movie about competitive a capella groups on a college campus would be a big deal, I would've probably laughed. And yet, "Pitch Perfect" became one of those movies pretty much everyone loves (or at least knows of), so it's no surprise that a sequel was made. This week, the trailer to the highly anticipated second film (simply called "Pitch Perfect 2") was released. It stars all of the fan favorites from last time, including Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow, and Elizabeth Banks, as the Barden Bellas compete in an international competition. Check it out!
Yesterday, Cher announced that she will be canceling the remainder of her current Dressed to Kill Tour. The cancellation comes after a recommendation from her doctors, who told the singer she needed more time to recover from a viral infection she developed prior to starting this leg of the D2K tour.
Several shows on the tour had been rescheduled, with a handful of shows also getting canceled last week. In a press release from Cher's camp, Cher said, ""I am totally devastated. Nothing like this has ever happened to me. I cannot apologize enough to all the fans who bought tickets. I'm so proud of this show. It is my best ever. I sincerely hope that we can come back again next year and finish what we started."
On Twitter, the singer apologized to her fans,and said she felt "gut wrenching [s]adness" at the realization that she wouldn't be able to finish the tour.
The canceled dates — plus the tweets from Cher — can be found below the cut. Get well soon, Cher!
The internet got weird this week, guys. Like, half the stuff that went on is not even appropriate for this blog (looking at you, Kim Kardashian and bizarre "Too Many Cooks" video from Adult Swim). So here's some of the other stuff that happened...
Blank Space Music Video
Yahoo made a mistake this week when they accidentally released Taylor Swift's music video for her new single, "Blank Space," a bit early. But Twitter (and the rest of the internet) didn't mind. The video showed T-Swift in a new light: playing up the rumors that she's someone who's "too crazy" to keep a boyfriend by slashing paintings, wrecking shirts, and throwing things. #BLANKSPACEMUSICVIDEO (yep, in all caps to denote excitement) immediately started trending. Although Yahoo pulled the video shortly after the accidental release, a few hours later, Taylor and her team officially debuted the video and people have been talking about it ever since, documenting her outfits, dissecting each important moment, and GIFing everything. I sincerely appreciate the Regina George/"Mean Girls" reference at 2:32.
