Super Bowl XLVI: Madonna promises no wardrobe malfunction in half-time 'dream' show (VIDEO)

Singer Madonna gestures as she speaks at the podium during a press conference for the Bridgestone Super Bowl XLVI halftime show at the Super Bowl XLVI Media Center in the J.W. Marriott Indianapolis on Feb. 2, 2012.
Pop superstar Madonna described the chance to perform at Super Bowl XLVI as a 'dream come true' but promised there would be no repeat of Janet Jackson's famous wardrobe malfunction from 7 years ago.

Over the years the Super Bowl half-time show has increasingly featured high-profile pop acts - a far cry from the first Super Bowl in 1967 when college marching bands entertained the crowd.

Paul McCartney, the Rolling Stones, U2, Prince, Bruce Springsteen, The Black Eyed Peas and Janet Jackson are among recent performers.

Jackson's, in 2004, was the most controversial as she made headlines worldwide with her infamous "wardrobe malfunction."

Justin Timberlake, who was performing with Jackson, grabbed her costume and tugged at it, exposing her breast to millions of TV viewers.

Madonna said all efforts had been made to ensure there would not be a similar episode in her show.
"Great attention to detail has been paid to my wardrobe, there will be no wardrobe malfunction - I promise".

The Like a Virgin singer conceded she was feeling the pressure ahead of singing in front of the huge live television audience. Last year's Super Bowl attracted 111 million US viewers - the largest for a single television broadcast in the country.

"This is a Midwesterner girls dream to be performing at the Super Bowl half-time show," said Madonna, who was born in Bay City, Michigan.

"In over 25 years of performing that I've done, I have never worked so hard or been so scrupulous or detail-orientated or freaked out."
