Lady GaGa is putting on her Poker Face!
As we reported on Thursday, the singer was asked at a press conference if her Super Bowl 51 halftime show will be political, i.e. is she going to make a reference to President Donald Trump. The American Horror Story actress dodged the question by saying the performance will be about “love and compassion and kindness.”
On Friday, during an interview with Atlanta’s 98.5 KLUC, the musician finally confirmed whether or not she will address Drumpf’s horrific policies. It turns out…
When asked the big question on everyone’s mind, Stefani replied:
“No… That’s not what the show is about. The show is coming from my heart to everyone in America that I love so much. This is my country and I’m proud to be a pop star from this country. I’ve travelled the whole world and it’s something special to be from America. I want people that watch the halftime show to feel the greatness of the USA.”
However, when she was pressed further, she explained that she didn’t want to say “anything divisive.”
“Because I know I have a bigger stage that day and that I’ve had a lot of really big stages that I’m grateful for, you know the power of your voice. And I would like to use to that voice to bring people together on that day. Saying anything divisive would only make things worse. And that’s just not what I want for my country.”
Prior to Trump’s win, GaGa was an extremely vocal supporter for Hillary Clinton.
On Sunday, Miz Germanotta is avoiding politics, and sticking to music!
