Bruno Mars is set to headline the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show at Metlife Stadium...and he's more than ready! On Thursday, Mars at NFL Press Conference at Lincoln Center's Rose Theater in New York City said he had already had a taste of the winter elements during a reherasals earlier in the week.

"There was a lot of things that happened, the microphone turns into a popsicle!" said Mars on NFL.com. "I'm grabbing the mic and it's frozen! Adding that some heaters should fix the issue. But what about that signature hairdo staying intact? "I got three gallons of hairspray in this thing, so I'm good!"

So what can viewers expect? "No matter where I perform, it's my job to uplift the people, whether I'm performing at a graduation party, wedding, bar mitzvah, Grammys, Super Bowl, I'm gonna give it all I got." He then added, "I don't trapeze and all that stuff. I hope to get people dancing and get people smiling. if you ever come to my shows, it's just us up there with these songs and our instruments. I hope that's enough."

Mars also talked about choosing his co-performers. "The first band I thought of was the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I've been a fan of theirs for such a long time, I admire their career." Mars continued, "They're a soulful band, and not just musically, but as people. I sat down with Flea, and he's so passionate about music. Even to this day, doing it for so long, he's still so passionate about creating music and performing. I want to surround myself with guys like that forever, and it's an honor to share the stage with them. They're one of my personal favorite bands of all time."

Mars was also thankful to the NFL for the chance to headline the big event in front of a worldwide televised audience. "I still feel like a new artist...the NFL is such a prestigious stage, and they're giving the new guy a shot."
