Here's What Twitter Thought About Katy Perry's Halftime Show

There weren't enough of the dancing sharks or Missy Elliott.

Posted on

From a hulking mechanical lion to the original queen of rap, Katy Perry pulled out all the stops during her Super Bowl halftime show. Here's what Twitter had to say about her larger-than-life performance.

First, Katy appeared on stage on this brave, mechanical lion and Twitter was less than impressed.

Being in the stadium gives you a whole different perspective on the halftime show. They just euthanized the lion.

Her wardrobe choices garnered comparisons to both Guy Fieri and Will Ferrell in Blades of Glory.

Lenny Kravitz utilized all 35 seconds of his much-publicized screen time singing about that time he dared to kiss a girl.

It's brave of Lenny Kravitz to admit that he experimented with heterosexuality.

Lenny Kravitz bragging about kissing a girl is strangely endearing. It's like sixth grade

On the less peppy end of her "California Girls" performance were those sad looking beach balls.

Put eyes on the beachballs! and the trees! What about the surfboards? NO! Never the surfboards!
