Even though close to 110 million people will be tuning in to Super Bowl XLVIII Sunday and anyone involved with the Pepsi Super Bowl XLVIII Halftime Show should be seriously freaking out right now, leave it to Bruno Mars to be completely chill about his upcoming performance. He's from Hawaii—he was born relaxed.
Bruno spoke at a pre-Super Bowl press conference Thursday afternoon about the show, and though he didn't give too many secrets away, he did let us in on one aspect of the show he completely overlooked—just how chilly it's going to be. During his practices, the "Gorilla" singer mentioned how cold the microphones have been. But don't worry: He'd been assured he'll be "getting some heaters on everything." Temperatures at the stadium during Super Bowl XLVIII are expected to be in the 30s.
Despite the immense (crushing, terrifying, unavoidable) pressure most performers might be facing a few days before the big show, Bruno insisted he's not worried. "I ain't scared, if that's what your asking!" he jokingly snapped back to one reporter. Plus, he's got "three gallons of hairspray" to keep that famous pompadour in place during any weather conditions.
As for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, who were recently announced to be joining Bruno during the Pepsi Super Bowl XLVIII Halftime Show, the Unorthodox Jukebox singer says he can't wait. "I've been a fan of theirs for such a long time. It's an honor to be sharing the stage with them."
