Being booked as a musical performer at Super Bowl apparently brings a big challenge even for a veteran entertainer like Madonna. Visiting "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" on Monday, January 30, the "4 Minutes" hitmaker admits that she feels nervous about the upcoming gig.
"It's the most nerve-wracking thing I've ever done," she told host Jay Leno. "The Super Bowl is the holy of holies. It's like the sacred show of America. And I have to go on in the middle of that holy of holies and put on the greatest show that was ever put on before. That's no pressure."
Talking further about what becomes her first concern, the Material Girl shared, "I'm particularly nervous with a show like that because, for instance, they're playing football all day so they don't really have time to do a soundcheck. It's a little bit like a circus act - get in there, roll out my carpet, put on my show and get the f*** off."
Madge went on assuring that her performance won't be X-rated as saying, "Well, for sure (there will be) no nipples." She added, "I wasn't gonna go there. I mean I don't like to repeat myself or do what other people have done before me."
While preparing for the Super Bowl gig, Madge is also gearing up to release her new album "M.D.N.A.". After releasing a cover art for "Give Me All Your Luvin' " and a snippet of its music video, she has recently revealed a cover art for the album. The colorful photo features her embracing a dance-queen vibe while donning a bright red lipstick.
Madge will release the CD in the United States on March 26. She will perform "Give Me All Your Luvin' ", which is the first offering from the album, during the Super Bowl gig this Sunday, February 5.
