Katy Perry just gave her most spectacular performance to date during the Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show. It’s no question that the diva definitely gave her all in those excruciating 12 and a half minutes.

In an interview with Billboard, the “Fireworks” singer says she used to have reservations on what she could do on stage. This is very surprising to hear especially since Perry is known for her outlandish costumes, props and special effects during her tour. But now she’s up to do anything to keep her fans entertained even if it means flying and bursting into flames.

“Everyone has been asking me if I’m going to be nervous before the halftime show. I’m like, I’m f—ing human. This is the biggest event of my career,” Perry revealed.

The 30-year-old had every right to feel nervous. The Super Bowl XLIX is expected to rake in a TV audience of about 100 million, not including the approximately 63,000 fans gathered in Arizona’s University of Phoenix stadium. It didn’t help that Bruno Mars gave an amazing half time performance the year before.

Perry revealed that she paid close attention to past Super Bowl performances, especially to Beyonce’s and Madonna’s. It’s safe to say that the singer drew inspiration from Queen Bey during this year’s show. Perry says she’s in awe of how Beyonce brought so much strength, sassiness with just the right amount of sex in each performance. She, however, was quick to add that she’s not in her category just yet.

“She’s an icon. Elvis, The Beatles, Michael Jackson — she’s in that category. I’m not. She’s like five notches above me, and those levels are compounded in difficulty,” the “Fireworks” singer admitted.
