View Photo Gallery

This is an appeal to the NFL: Katy Perry absolutely must play the Super Bowl Half Time Show in 2015. She was born to do this, y’all.

M.I.A.‘s contract with NBC states that she’ll have to shell out to cover any fines that might be enforced by the FCC following her Super Bowl performance. While the world waits with baited breath to see if the most famous finger in the consumerist world will be reprimanded by the FCC, we’re guessing M.I.A is waiting just as anxiously to see what happens, especially since Janet Jackson‘s nip-slip cost CBS a cool $550,000.
