Lady Gaga’s Super Bowl halftime show will be about inclusion
The Super Bowl is this weekend, and as you probably know, Lady Gaga is playing the halftime show. Last year’s Super Bowl halftime show was highly political thanks to Beyonce, and it looks like this year’s will be too. LA Times points out that, in a press conference yesterday (2/2), Gaga said, “The only statements I’ll be making during the halftime show are the ones that I’ve been consistently making throughout my career. I believe in passion for inclusion. I believe in the spirit of equality, and that the spirit of this country is one of love and compassion and kindness. My performance will uphold those philosophies.”
No word yet on what exactly that will entail, but we know that Gaga is a huge opponent of Donald Trump, whose two weeks in office thus far have not had much passion for inclusion.
In that same press conference, Gaga would neither confirm nor deny if she’s going to bring out her “Telephone” collaborator (and frequent Super Bowl halftime show performer) Beyonce, but some have suggested that the Instagram above might be hinting at an appearance by H-Town’s finest.
If she does bring out Bey, hopefully the President of the United States America will keep his sexist comments about her to himself. And if Beyonce does play, it’ll be her first of two performances on national television in one week. She’s playing the Grammys the following weekend. (She’s also expecting twins!)
While Bey is just a rumor, Gaga did confirm that she’s bringing out Tony Bennett.
The pre-game show will include a performance from fellow Trump haters (and Pence haters) Hamilton.
Gaga also appears in a Tiffany ad that will air during the Super Bowl:
