Inside Lady Gaga's Super Bowl Halftime Show: 'I've Been Planning This Since I Was 4'

Lady Gaga promises a blowout performance when she hits the Pepsi halftime show stage at Super Bowl LI.
"It will be special, because, you know, I've been planning this since I was four," Gaga exclaims in a behind-the-scenes look at how she's preparing for the big day. "So, I know exactly what I'm going to do."
"For me, it's about giving to the fans and bringing people together that wouldn't normally come together," Gaga adds of her upcoming Super Bowl Sunday performance. "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. I think the challenge is to look at it and say, 'OK, what can I do differently? How can I elevate certain little things here and there, and also make it about the music?'"
Mother Monster further proclaims, "This is where I'm supposed to be!"
The behind-the-scenes footage also includes Gaga's dancers rehearsing the choreography to "Bad Romance," leading many to believe that the hit song will be part of her Super Bowl set list.
Gaga also shared on Instagram on Monday that she is going all out in preparation for her big performance. "Super Bowl Rehearsal is so fun. We built a tent in my backyard with a dance floor to practice!" the 30-year-old pop star wrote. "We love you monsters, can't wait to perform for u!"
A source close to the halftime show hinted to ET what fans can expect when Gaga hits the stage on Feb. 5. "She is having a guest join her during a song," the source confirmed, noting that it's been "tough getting a guest to sign on" and that "two artists said no when they were asked to join her."
