Last night Lady Gaga performed at the halftime show for Super Bowl 51 and she absolutely killed it. Let me start off by saying that before I go into a bit of a rambling rant about why it was so important. No worries, if you just want to scroll to the video at the bottom, feel free.
It is absolutely insane to be that she was able to pull off a performance like that without anyone else sharing the stage with her. I feel like every single halftime show I have seen has always had more than one performer, but Gaga reminded us of her talent and the attention she demands. Bravo on that one. Plus the dancing and that her singing was on point? Nothing wrong with reminding people what talent is.
Okay, now on to why this performance was so important, especially right now. This country is divided right now, that’s for sure, and she went up there reminding us all that everyone should be accepted.
Although she didn’t come right out and say it, her performance was pretty political. That’s why she chose to remind the world that America welcomes everyone, or should welcome everyone.
Watching Gaga up there though, knowing that she has been through sexual assault, bullying, eating disorders, and so much more. She went up there and performed her heart out, she looked incredible, and sounded even better. It kind of gives you hope, or it should if you know her backstory at all.
Don’t let anyone ever tell you that you can’t follow your dreams because she was able to make it from being a theater geek to having one of the biggest audiences possible.
On another note, my heart melted when she said hi to her mom and dad.
