As she prepares to host the half time show at Super Bowl LI on Sunday, super star singer Lady Gaga has promised to give a very memorable show.
“This performance is for everyone. I want to, more than anything, create a moment that everyone that’s watching will never forget,” she said in a press conference Thursday in Houston.
With much of the world’s focus on U.S president Donald Trump and his executive orders, Gaga revealed that she wouldn’t be making any particularly political statements.
“The only statements that I’ll be making during the halftime show are the ones that I’ve been consistently making throughout my career,” Gaga said. “I believe in a passion for inclusion. I believe in the spirit of equality, and that the spirit of this country is one of love and compassion and kindness. My performance will uphold those philosophies.”
She didn’t share many details about her performance, but promised an “athletic” performance devoid of any wardrobe malfunctions. “There will be no meat dress there, so don’t wait for that,” Gaga said. “Get excited to see something that you haven’t seen before.”
She however dedicated the performance to all her fans.
“Essentially, that kid that couldn’t get a seat at the cool kids table and that kid who was kicked out of the house because his mom and dad didn’t accept him for who he was? That kid is going to have the stage for 13 minutes,” she said. “And I’m excited to give it to them.”
She also revealed that her frequent collaborator, 90-year old jazz singer Tony Bennett, would make an appearance at the show.
