In an interview with Ryan Seacrest at Sunday night's Grammy awards, Katy Perry revealed that she received a message from God moments before she stepped out on the stage to perform her half-time show at the Super Bowl.
“I was praying and I got a word from God and he says, ‘You got this and I got you,’” the I Kissed A Girl singer said.
Perry, a pastor's kid and former Christian artist, said she spent much time in prayer and meditation before her big performance in front of millions. She also described over-preparing by rehearsing the act at least 40 times.
But it was a confirmation from an unlikely source to which Perry gives all the credit:
And then I was on top of the lion and a guy —- a random guy —- just looked at me with a headset that I’d never communicated with before. He looked me straight in the eyes and said ‘You got this.’ And I was like, ‘Oh, that’s God confirming that I can do this!’
Seacrest then changed the subject to makeup and Perry pumped her favorite CoverGirl mascara.
