"I've been planning this since I was 4. I know exactly what to do", she said during the interview.
Explaining how much it means to her performing at the historic halftime show, Lady Gaga said that it's all about 'bringing people together', saying: "For me it's all about giving to the fans and bringing people together who wouldn't usually come together."
"The thing is, it's such a big world stage in terms of how many people see it and it's been done so many times."
Lady Gaga is also challenging herself to do differently and 'elevate certain little things' on the stage of the Halftime Show that often brings iconic and unforgettable performances and musical stunts.
