With the Super Bowl just days away, The Associated Press has dropped word that Missy Elliot will be joining Katy Perry on stage during the highly anticipated halftime show. Perry had previously reported that, alongside Lenny Kravtiz, she was planning to bring out an additional surprise female guest; “I wanted to bring someone back, a throwback of sorts that definitely needed some more shine. All I can say is it will be a real female fun night. It’s a bit old school. When this person enters the stage and you hear the first ring of the chord I think jaws will drop and faces will melt.”
It should be noted that the source is “on condition of anonymity” as Elliott’s participation has not been officially announced by the N.F.L. yet. However having previously worked together on a remix of Perry’s 2011 hit “Last Friday Night (T.F.I.F.)” as well as the aforementioned clues, Missy Elliot seems to fit the bill and a guest performance by the legendary rapper would certainly be most welcomed. No news on what songs will be performed but given the track record of previous half time shows, i’m sure we can suspect a little trip down memory lane.
