Lady Gaga’s halftime performance was hotly debated before she even took the stage. After she finished her final song and strutted off the scene, she left the country in shock that she didn’t make the anti-Trump political statement she had promised. However, now the NFL has found what she snuck in which has resulted in the worst news of her life less than 24 hours after the big show.
Prior to performing at the Super Bowl yesterday, Gaga, an avid Hillary Clinton supporter and Trump-hater was expected to use the world’s stage to express her political feelings and distaste for our president. Always one to shock the crowd, she did just that when she seemingly did nothing controversial. Now, the NFL is exposing what she actually pulled over on everyone watching, since most people didn’t catch the sneaky thing she did and violated her contract by doing so.
Radar Online reports that in the middle of one of Gaga’s songs last night, she changed the lyrics to make a statement that many people missed. During the portion of her performance when she sang her hit song “Born This Way,” she bellowed out “No matter gay, straight or bi. Lesbian, transgendered life. I’m on the right track, baby. I was born to survive.” That was not part of the original song and the producers were not made aware that she was changing the lyrics.
“According to a source close the longtime LGBT activist, ‘She was not supposed to include that entire segment in the song. The producers were absolutely mortified’,” Radar reported. Gaga had been given very explicit instructions that her contract was conditional based on not making a political statement since it could harm Super Bowl sponsors’ brands who may not represent the same opinions that she does.
Nobody knew that she had this up her sleeve until after it was over and now sources close to the situation are telling Radar that she’s “getting hell” for it, but doesn’t care. It was more important to her to give a shout out to the community she supports than it was to honor her contract. The NFL had to know that this liberal mouthpiece wasn’t going to simply be silent on the issues she passionate about and since she hates Trump, this was probably her backhanded way of speaking out against him, without realizing that he’s actually shown support for this same community in the same week of her performance.
The NFL had to know that this liberal mouthpiece wasn’t going to simply be silent on the issues she’s passionate about. Since she hates Trump, this was probably her backhanded way of speaking out against him, without realizing that he’s actually shown support for the LGBT community in the same week of her performance when he vowed to protect their rights. If this was the worst she said, then she did alright and the NFL has more to worry about that her expressing her support for the LGBT community since they allow their players to disrespect our flag, our president, and our police force.
