Madonna has been confirmed as the performer for the Super Bowl XLVI halftime show on February 5, and "Extra's" Jerry Penacoli caught up with the "W.E." director at her film's screening at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC.
Excited for her new gig, Madonna exclaimed, "It's a huge deal, my God. To be as exciting as the football game is a huge challenge. And to get your stage set up in eight minutes, another huge challenge."
The singer will take the stage at the Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis on Feb. 5, 2012.
Madge is teaming up with Cirque du Soleil to create what is being called a "signature performance."
Two days before football's biggest event, "W.E." opens in theaters, and the mega star talked about the Roberto Cavalli number she wore for the premiere, saying, "I tried to dress more like a tuxedo kind of thing."
In addition to her movie, Madonna's new album, in which she collaborates with rapper Nicki Minaj and M.I.A., will drop in the spring. "They're both singing on my record," she said, adding, "I'm singing, too!"
