Despite rumors to the contrary, Lady Gaga was never asked by the NFL to refrain from talking about President Donald Trump or politics during the Super Bowl halftime show this Sunday.
If anyone thought the fanatical liberal and former Hillary Clinton supporter would actually use her massive stage to do what she is paid to do (you know, shut the hell up and sing), I’m not sure what planet they are living on.
Because that is most certainly NOT what’s going to happen.
Instead, it looks like viewers are going to be “treated” to a hefty dose of finger-wagging about “equality,” “inclusion,” and “kindness,” (because Trump and his supporters are such meanies) and maybe the most expensive vocal of “kumbaya” ever witnessed, but we’ll have to wait and see on that last point.

When asked about any potential political statements at a press conference Thursday morning, the singer answered, “Well, I don’t know if I will succeed in unifying America. You’ll have to ask America when it’s over. But the only statements that I’ll be making during the halftime show are the ones that I’ve been consistently making throughout my career. 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. So my performance will have both those philosophies.”
The Twitterverse, of course, had a few things to say:
Because Super Bowl parties aren’t complete without some entitled rich NYC kid who’s now a frillionare entertainer lecturing America. https://t.co/uLy5Vjfjgm

Yes, a musical sermon about inclusion and equality delivered by Lady Gaga is sure to resonate with the NFL audience! https://t.co/tNo4jejEqz

@MattWalshBlog I miss the days when the NFL just focused on football. I will not be watching commercials OR half-time crap.
