If there’s one thing that Lady Gaga can’t do it’s putting on a bad show. Her Super Bowl performance was electrifying in every way. Although she didn’t make any direct jabs at Pres. Donald Trump, she still managed to put her message of inclusiveness across.
Gaga performed hits like “Bad Romance,” “Million Reasons,” and “Just Dance.” But what stood out is her performance of “Born This Way.”
Why? The song has always been considered an anthem for diversity. Gaga may not have said anything political during her performance, but this is her subtle way of doing it. She showed love for all the races and genders who’ve been hurt and offended by Trump’s policies.
She also performed a rendition of “This Land Is Your Land” at the beginning, which further takes a subtle jab at Trump.
Of course, fans and celebs alike showed love for Gaga’s performance—from the dancing lights to her football catch at the end.
