Lady Gaga wants to relive Super Bowl show
Lady Gaga wants to "relive" her Super Bowl performance.
The ‘John Wayne’ singer staged a high-energy greatest hits set during the half-time break at the sorting spectacle over the weekend and she only hopes "the world" enjoyed the show as much as she did.
She said: "I’m really happy and had such an amazing time performing at the Super Bowl, wish I could relive it all over again.
"I really had a real sense of being in the zone for this performance, worked on it for a really long time, took months, trained hard. Every second I wanted to give the world and fans what they deserve, a great show."
The 30-year-old pop star is used to performing at huge venues but she was humbled by the "surreal" experience of playing at the Super Bowl.
Speaking to Beats 1’s Zane Lowe for an Apple Music interview, she said: "When we first got there I asked my dad and friends and mom to come out to the field with me, and took a bunch of photos at the 50-yard-line…
"I was singing ‘Million Reasons’ and my mom and dad were right there. I think that’s why I said ‘Hi Mom and Dad’ – it was so surreal and to see my parents in the crowd."
Gaga ended her show by catching the football and dropping into a pit, and she admits her sporting stunt was the most stressful aspect of the performance, which began on the roof of the NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas.
She said: "I was really happy I caught the football.
"The night before I was going to sleep I looked up at the ceiling and wondered why on earth I thought it was a good idea to catch a football – it was all my idea.
"Biggest fumble of the night if I dropped it.
"I fought for it. I thought if I could do all of that and then catch the football, that’s a real touchdown."
