Some music fans here in the U.S. are hiding under the covers until warmer weather prevails, while others are braving the cold and heading to NFL playoff games in hopes their team makes it to the Super Bowl this year. Pop star/mother monster Lady Gaga is somewhat doing both. While the “Perfect Illusion” singer is able to rest up and get ready for what can be assumed will be a pretty epic world tour yet to be announced, she’s also prepping pretty hard for her upcoming Super Bowl halftime performance in a few weeks.
On Wednesday, the singer posted a behind the scenes video to give fans behind the scenes a look at how she and her team are preparing for the biggest gig of her already impressive career.
“The thing is that it’s such a big, world stage in terms of how many people see it, and it’s been done so many times I think the challenge is to look at it and say, ‘okay what can I do differently?’” Gaga says in the beginning of the video. “How can I elevate certain little things here and there, and also make it about the music?”
The main focus in the first of what will assumably be many behind the scenes videos leading up to the Super Bowl on February 5, is the choreography. All the work her and her team are doing in Los Angeles at the moment can be seen in the video below.
“We have hand-picked dancers that Gaga and I have worked with over the past ten years,” choreographer Richy Jackson is heard saying in the video as he and Gaga’s team of dancers rehearse for the show. “This sort of platform that we have with the NFL to do the halftime show, I feel like goes to those who have helped us along the way to get here. So it’s going to be a big reunion.”
There has been some speculation in the media regarding the NFL’s potential policy on forbidding Gaga from making any political statements during the televised performance. For anyone who saw her totally blow everyone else out of the water with her National Anthem performance at last year’s Super Bowl, they know that she should have no problem letting her singing do her talking for her.
