Madonna's Super Bowl Stage Fright: 'I'm So Nervous!'
In a new interview, this year's Super Bowl halftime queen Madonna confessed to "Extra's" AJ Calloway, "I'm so nervous!"
Madge, who today released a new video, "Give Me All Your Luvin'," pointed out, "It's like the Super Bowl is like, God in America. It's like the whole country is watching this game. It's everything and it means so much to people. Then I come on at halftime... I'd better put on a damn good show, right?"
When AJ inquired, "What are you gonna do?" the singer managed to say she will perform a combination of tunes from the past and present. "I'm gonna do a new song from my record, then do some oldies but goodies, so stay tuned." Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. are also set to perform with Madge.
The busy songstress just added "movie director" to her list of accomplishments, with her romantic drama, "W.E," about the affair between King Edward VIII and American divorcee Wallis Simpson. Madonna said she related to the story, and revealed, "I think I've made sacrifices for love, and I think that's essential. I think that's what you do. But I'd like to believe I can have it all."
Catch Madonna on Sunday's Super Bowl XLVI (Giants vs. Patriots) halftime show, and watch "W.E." -- playing in theaters now.
