Lady Gaga Vows To Make Statement Of ‘Inclusion’ At Super Bowl LI
Lady Gaga promised Thursday to make a statement about “inclusion” during her Super Bowl LI halftime show.
“Well, I don’t know if I will succeed in unifying America,” Lady Gaga said during a press conference with the NFL. “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 have been consistently making throughout my career.” (RELATED: Details About Lady Gaga’s Halftime Show Have Leaked, And It’s Going To Be Epic)
“I believe in a passion for inclusion,” she added. “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 uphold those philosophies.”
NFL executives responded to the singer’s promise to make a statement of “inclusion” and said they are not worried about it, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
“True artists understand that they have the power to not only make a lasting impression on their legacy but also to do something as inclusive as possible,” NFL’s chief content officer Jordan Levin said.
The singer also remained tight-lipped and refused to give away any information about her Super Bowl LI show including what songs she would be performing and how many costume changes there would be during her 13-minute performance.
The New England Patriots are scheduled to play the Atlanta Falcons this Sunday at NRG Stadium in Houston.
