We do not know when we were Lady Gaga in the Super Bowl Halftime Show. Some critics argue that she uses this opportunity to get political. She assured us that she would not. Her meat dresses, others think Gaga to pay Joe back, and by the arrival of the eggs too avant-garde mainstream of such activities. Gaga proved we were wrong. She really blew spectacular performances of the rooftops of the NRG stadium, not only emphasizing some of her most popular songs, but some of the most powerful.
Gaga did not open her performance with one of her songs. Instead, she sang “This Land Is Your Land.” “You may know it as a folk song, but it was originally written as a song of protest. Gaga’s song is a quiet, powerful way to open. The original version of this song includes a section,” There is a huge high Wall, trying to stop me. / Logo painting, said, private property. But on the back, it did not say anything. This land is for you and me. “The wall? You do not say.
After the show began the “poker face”, addresses Gaga’s bisexuality. In an interview in 2014, she said, “You know his song is about having sex this guy dating, I was a long time ago, I was thinking about chicks every time we make love.” While some people may Considering that it was a ballroom playing the national anthem, Gaga took her own experience to a powerful song that happens to get on the body dance floor.
She continued with “Born This Way,” one of the most clear-cut LGBTQ anthems in her repertoire. When the song was released, she told Harper’s Bazaar, “What means something to me is my music. I don’t want to make money; I want to make a difference.” Many LGBTQ fans have adopted the track as a personal mantra and it’s title alone is a clear testament to Gaga’s devotion to her fans, no matter how they identify. She drove that point home with her backup dancers, which were a mix of sizes and colors — as they all danced in sync to the track, it was clear that Gaga’s message of inclusivity and acceptance was being projected in full force.
“Telephone” was next. And while there was no Bey cameo — we know everyone’s hopes were high when the opening strains of this one came on — the song touches on the idea that the elite holds some ill will for the general population. We can’t say we completely agree with that one, but it did add another mega hit to Gaga’s performance tonight.
With such a clear message of optimism and acceptance, Gaga’s performance didn’t need to be an outright protest. She let her songs do the talking.
