During a recent stop on her radio promo circuit, Mother Monster confirmed that she'll kick off the set suspended from the roof of Houston's NRG Stadium and it was an idea that came from the star's sibling out of all folks. "My sister was like, 'I know, let’s suspend you in the air!'" she admitted.
Gaga also offered some insight on how close the NFL remains to the act throughout the performance's preparation period.
"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," she explained. "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.
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 while I rehearse. It’s been really great."
You'll also see Gaga during the coveted commercial break when a short spot for her endorsement with Tiffany & Co.'s new fashion jewelry collection airs before her performance. Be on the lookout!
