Playing Katy Perry Spills Super Bowl Halftime Show Secrets: 'I Am Not Beyonce!'

Katy Perry will touch down at the University of Phoenix Stadium on Feb. 1 for what is sure to be a dazzling halftime performance during Super Bowl XLIX. ET's Kevin Frazier caught up with the pop star to find out how she's gearing up for the big show.

The California girl, who is currently on hiatus from her Prismatic World Tour while she preps for her Super Bowl performance, tells ET that she has a few tricks up her sleeve for what is arguably the gig of a lifetime.

"I can tell you this," she teases. "I have some special guests, I have many costumes, I have different worlds that I'm creating and I would say that my entrance and my exit are very unique.

Perry, 30, told Willie Giest during the Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots game on Saturday that she invited Lenny Kravitz, 50, to be one of her special guests. No word yet on what'll sing together, and don't expect to her to give anything else away about her performance.

"I think the speculation is very fun," she tells ET. "I don't usually like speculation but I'm like, 'Hey, it's like bringing everybody into the conversation and you know, on Feb. 1 you'll see what's actually going to go down."

The halftime show is expected to be the most-watched musical event of the year. Last year, more than 115 million viewers saw the halftime show featuring Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. But don't be so quick to compare her to previous halftime performers such as Bey, Madonna and Diana Ross.

"I am not Beyonce! We all know that. I am human," she nervously jokes. "I'll be something else. There's so many flavors of ice cream and I'll be a different one."

Katy also tells ET performing as the halftime entertainment on the world's biggest stage is something she never imagined.

"I'm always like, 'Are you sure I'm invited to the party? Are you sure? Can I come?'" she jokes. "I do know the incredible amount of responsibility I have for this performance, and i think when the universe gives you these things, it's just asking you if you're ready for the next level. And I'm getting ready."
