Charli XCX is looking forward to watching the Super Bowl.
The 'Boom Clap' hitmaker is planning on flying out to the major sporting event on Sunday (01.02.15), but admitted she is more excited about seeing her pal Katy Perry's half-time performance than watching the game because she doesn't understand American football.
Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, she said: "Yeah I think I'm going to stay and watch it. I have no idea about American football or anything, I only know about our football y'know? It seems to be totally different. I don't know if I'll really know what's going on, but I'm looking forward to seeing Katy."
The 22-year-old star was in London on Wednesday (28.01.15) to headline the first of two MTV Brand New shows - presented by Emporio Armani Diamonds - which aim to highlight new acts set to gain chart success in 2015, including James Bay, Sinead Harnett and Years & Years.
Despite being eager to see Katy perform at University of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale, Arizona, she revealed those hoping she will be making an appearance during the medley of hits will be left disappointed.
When asked if she is going to be a surprise guest during the 30-year-old singer's set, she admitted: "No, I'm not. If she asked me I'd probably be like, 'Yeah, sure!' but she hasn't invited me unfortunately."
Charli - who will release her album 'Sucker' in the UK next month - added she admires the "cool and really great" 'Dark Horse' singer, who she will join on a European tour starting in February.
She gushed: "We've hung out a few times and she is really cool and really great. We kind of first hung out at the VMAs where she was wearing that amazing denim outfit, which I was like, 'Yes!'."
Voting for the MTV Brand New winner closes at midnight tonight (29.01.15).
