Post Malone admitted that he's actually "very nervous" about his upcoming Super Bowl performance.
The Beerbongs & Bentleys rapper will be performing "America the Beautiful" in front of an audience of 115 million viewers worldwide for Super Bowl LVIII this Sunday (February 11).
In an interview with Apple Music's Nadeska Alexis on Thursday (February 8), Post Malone confessed that the opportunity has been "nerve-wracking" and that he is "very nervous."
Posty is no stranger to arena tours and headlining festivals, and is even slated to headline Rolling Loud California 2024 at the Hollywood Park Grounds in Inglewood next month. Still, this will be the rapper's biggest performance to date.
Despite his nerves, Post Malone assured the interviewer, "I'm excited. It's just fun and super-epic to be able to go out and sing a song so many beautiful artists have sang before."
When asked later in the interview for the best advice he has received thus far, Post told a young member of the audience, "I'm just gonna do my best, just do my best, and give it what I got. My dad told me, 'You'll never make everybody happy. So just be yourself and do your best at everything you do.' Do it your way and do it with love."
