Why This Year’s Super Bowl Halftime Show Is Going to Be Extremely Political

Whether you love football or not, the Super Bowl is an American institution. While some folks can get really riled up watching the actual game, some of us are just here for the commercials and history-making halftime show. This year’s show is being put on by Lady Gaga (who’s also starring in a Tiffany & Co. commercial this year), and while she’s not given too much away, we’re pretty sure that we can expect some very political moments from the singer.

While the actual show is always under tight wraps until it goes live, last year’s National Anthem singer has dropped some hints, and we’re sure that she wants everyone to know what her political thoughts are. While talking to People Magazine, the singer said, “I believe in a passion for inclusion. I believe in the spirit of equality and the spirit of this country as one of love and compassion and kindness. My performance will uphold those philosophies.” Yes, Gaga!

Although she’s been planning her performance for more than two months, we’re sure that in light of what’s been happening across the country, we can expect Gaga to speak out and for the rights of people across the country. Her entire “Little Monsters” MO is about her fans being outliers: different people who feel like they don’t fit in and who will always have her support.

Regardless of what songs she sings, we know that Gaga will have a few ad-libbed tricks up her sleeve and we’ll be waiting with baited breath to see exactly what she does for us all on Super Bowl Sunday.
