Katy Perry: God spoke to me before Super Bowl performance

Katy Perry revealed she received a message from God right before she performed at the Super Bowl.

The "Dark Horse" singer told E! News host Ryan Seacrest that she prepared for her half time show by leaning on her faith.

"I over prepared myself and did a lot of prayer and meditation," Perry told Seacrest at the 57th annual Grammy Awards.

She added, "It's funny, I was praying and I got a word from God and He says,  'You got this and I got you.' And then I was on top of the lion and a guy, a random guy, just looked on me with a headset that I've never communicated with before and he just looked me straight in the eyes and said, 'You got this.' And I was like, 'Oh, this is God confirming I can do this."

Perry, who grew up in a Christian home, has spoken out before about her faith.
