"Guitar god" Lenny Kravitz will be joining Katy Perry on stage during this year's Super Bowl halftime show, but that's not all we can expect from the "Roar" singer when she takes the stage.

Perry talked to E! News about her upcoming performance and said that the 12-and-a-half-minute performance won't be a "piece of cake," but compared to her two-hour concerts, it hopefully be a little bit easier! The high-pressure event, however, is still forcing her to give it her all.

"I've got my mind, my body, my soul and my focus really in tact," the "Birthday" singer said.

To be selected as the halftime performer is a huge honor, and Perry understands it! She confessed that when she first heard the news she bawled her eyes out.

"It feels like I've out dreamt my dream," she said.

But she then admitted that once the news settled, she became (and still is) nervous.

"I'm not superhuman," she explained of the butterflies she has been feeling. "I'm not a robot."

She also told Today's Willie Geist that she doesn't plan to succumb to her nervousness. In fact, she's going to use it to help her!

"I'm going to kind of recycle those nerves and make them adrenaline," she said.

Sounds like a good plan to us!

With all of that adrenaline, the "This Is How We Do" singer told E! News that she will perform a "medley" of songs that her fans "all know and love" and even teased her grand entrance.

"I'm going to do all the songs that work," she said, adding, "I think that my entrance and my exit as of right now—they are superb."

Geist predicted that one song would be "American Woman," Kravitz's hit, but all she would say is, "We'll see!"


Although she has been traveling for her Prismatic World Tour, Perry said that this performance won't be like her concerts, except that she will have multiple costume changes! The designer? None other than her BFF Jeremy Scott.
