Lady Gaga is going all out for this year’s Super Bowl halftime show.
The Mother Monster just confirmed that she will perform while being suspended rom the roof of Houston’s NRG Stadium. Speaking with Boston’s Mix 104.1 radio show Karson & Kennedy, the “Million Reasons” singer said the high-flying stunt was an idea dreamed up by younger sister Natali.
“My sister was like, ‘I know, let’s suspend you in the air!’” she said.
According to Gaga, there were already a lot of negotiations about the performance even before she signed up for the gig. She credited her past concert spectaculars — her Monster Ball Tour, anyone? — as the thing that made her memorable to NFL execs.
“First of all, there’s a lengthy process to go through, meeting with the NFL and sort of applying and discussing what you would do in the first place. I think that part of how they decide who is going to come and do the halftime show is based on our ideas and what we want to do,” she shared. “They were really excited about the show we wanted to put on. They’ve been super supportive. They’ve been there every day at the rehearsal space with us and cheering me on as I rehearse. It’s been great.”
