Katy Perry is set to perform at Super Bowl XLIX on Feb. 1 and if you ask her, there's no better choice for a halftime show. 

In a year where the domestic violence incidents dominated the headlines, Perry believes her songs will provide a great contrast to all of the negativity in the NFL this season. 

"I'm all about female empowerment and uplifting people's spirits, and people finding their own voice with songs like 'Roar' and 'Firework,' so maybe there is no better person" for the show, Perry said, according to the Chicago Tribune. "Hopefully I can bring that incredible strength and empowerment to people through the performance."
