Last night proved to be one of the craziest Super Bowls of all time considering how things ended up in the last few minutes of the fourth quarter, but as always, the halftime show is another big deal in itself.

This year Katy Perry headlined the show, and she had guest appearances by Lenny Kravitz and Missy Elliott.

Missy’s appearance was a complete surprise, and after she performed some of her biggest hits to date, her iTunes sales shot through the roof.

That Grape Juice writes:

As at writing, Elliott has three songs in the top 20 of the digital retailer’s US store – two of which sit within the top 10.

2002’s ‘Work It’ ranks highest at #4, while 2001’s ‘Get Ur Freak On’ sits at #6. ‘Lose Control’, which was released in 2005 and peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100, rounds out the resurgence at #12.


The great news is Missy confirmed she is working on a new studio album.


  1. YASSSS, Missy!!! I know it was supposed to be Katy’s show and all, but it sure as hell wasn’t when Missy started doing her thing. Can’t wait to hear some new music!

  2. I’m glad Katy brought Missy out. I think it’s a bit much to say she made the show, ’cause Katy did an excellent job. But I’m glad Missy is reaping some benefits from the performance and is coming out with a new album. She did an awesome job and looked great!

  3. Katy Perry was terrible the special effects was great but the performance was meh. Missy really outdid her entire performance with her segment. It shows you good music is timeless Get Ur Freak On & Work it 14 years later still makes me want to get up and dance.

  4. Missy was the show for me. Katy cannot dance, she can’t sing and her songs are trash. She made sure to come with all those Nickelodeon visuals to hide her lack of talent, as usual.
