(Radio.com) When Coldplay's Chris Martin personally called Bruno Mars to see if he'd like to perform at the 2016 Super Bowl Halftime Show with the band, Mars wasn't entirely sold on the idea. "I told him I don't think so," Mars said in a new interview with Rolling Stone. "I just felt like I'd just done it."

But Martin wouldn't take no for an answer. He asked Mars to visit him at a Malibu studio where the two could talk face-to-face. Martin was hooked on the idea of Mars and Beyonce collaborating on a live version of "Uptown Funk," but Mars wanted to know what Beyonce thought about the idea? Martin took a quick video with Mars, texted Beyonce and got her response: She was in.

"She's not f—ing joking around," Mars said about working with Beyonce. "She's going to get onstage and show everybody why she's the best every single time. She's got that monster in her."

He shared a story about the day before their performance. Read about that here.
