Lady Gaga Sends A Message On Super Bowl Halftime Performance

Pop star Lady Gaga performs during the Super Bowl LI halftime show on Sunday, February 5.

Lady Gaga's powerful Super Bowl LI halftime performance didn't have any of the overt political statements that some people were expecting, but it did have a message about inclusion.

The Grammy winner kicked off her fiery halftime show at the top of Houston's NRG Stadium singing "God Bless America" before transitioning into "This Land Is Your Land."

Then, before Gaga jumped from the roof, she concluded her emotional intro by quoting from the Pledge of Allegiance: "One Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all," with a clear emphasis on the "for all" part.

From there, Gaga's performance erupted into a medley of her greatest hits. From "Just Dance" and "Poker Face" to "Telephone" and "Bad Romance," Gaga made sure to not disappoint her loyal fans --also known as her "little monsters."

Gaga mainly sang the choruses from her hit songs but when it came to her 2011 hit, "Born This Way," she again offered another clear message of acceptance by choosing to sing lyrics from a verse towards the end of the song: "No matter gay, straight, or bi, Lesbian, transgendered life/I'm on the right track baby/I was born to survive."

Gaga has long been outspoken on the issue of LGBTQ rights, and the presence of Vice President Mike Pence in the audience at the game may have played a role in that message.
