Lady Gaga Goes Too Gawky For Super Bowl Halftime Show

Lady Gaga Goes Too Gawky For Super Bowl Halftime Show

Lady Gaga is an esteemed multi-talented musician, singer, actress, philanthropist and fashion designer known for her cutting-edge music and cutting-edge fashion style.

Gaga first made headlines as part of a dance-music scene that blended art trash and hard rock elements, and she immersed herself into it like Ziggy Stardust had done decades prior.

Poker Face

After much speculation and debate as to whether Lady Gaga would go overboard during her Super Bowl halftime performance, Lady Gaga did not disappoint with an unforgettable show at NRG Stadium. From diving from its roof and performing an explosive greatest hits medley of “Poker Face,” “Born This Way,” “Telephone,” ‘Just Dance,” and ‘Bad Romance,” Gaga did not depart from being her iconic self. With elaborate sets, multiple costume changes, flawless singing voice and stunning costume changes this show was truly magical.

She donned everything from futuristic space suits to midriff-baring outfits adorned with football shoulder pads reminiscent of Thriller choreography; shouted out her parents from the audience; employed Thriller-esque choreography; even stage jumped for an impressive show that rivaled any in her career.

Born This Way

Gaga caused much consternation when she revealed her second album, Born This Way. Fans had seen a tease of lyrics, while Gaga could easily oversell her message as a pop star – yet she managed to avoid doing this with this album’s songs about sexuality, autonomy and activism for LGBTQ+ people. Born This Way is powerful call-to-arms album!

It is an energetic burst of outrageous, unapologetic rock and roll. This was her Eighties arena-rock move with goth Catholic bombast – and an ideal creative peak artist rarely reach again in their lifetimes.

Born This Way’s music makes the album truly stand out, from Tarzan-boy yodels of “Judas” to expert bitchstole-my-look riffing on Madonna’s “Express Yourself.” Born This Way is an energetic ride combining electro-sleaze beats, Euro disco chorus chants and throwback rock goddess melodies; creating an experience both fun and provocative at the same time. Not just another party album in an age of isolation and stagnation this album promotes joy of living and celebration as an album can help break free!

Just Dance

Lady Gaga’s debut single “Just Dance” became the number-one pop songs chart hit and helped propel The Fame Monster album to #1 status. Her subsequent tour, Monster Ball, became the highest grossing headlining concert by any female artist at that time.

Gaga turned back time for inspiration with her follow-up album Born This Way and channeled Madonna-esque vocals into its title track and “Judas,” an iconoclastic track featuring sexual and religious symbolism. Additionally, she made her acting debut in Machete Kills and its sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

Gaga is not afraid to make waves with her daring images or blunt messages, particularly her advocacy work in support of fibromyalgia, an illness which causes chronic muscle pain in specific locations of the body known as trigger points. Gaga frequently addresses this condition through speaking engagements urging individuals seeking treatment and awareness on its symptoms; she also funds research projects dedicated to it.

Bad Romance

After her breakout successes of Poker Face and Born This Way had propelled Gaga to the top of the charts, expectations were sky-high when she took to the Super Bowl halftime show stage with Bad Romance at its halftime show. And she didn’t disappoint – it became the performance that catapulted Gaga beyond pop music into art and propelled her on her journey toward becoming an international icon.

Gaga’s song and video, depicting her abduction, drugging and auction off to potential clients at what looks like a Russian bath house, proved one of her boldest yet. It became one of the best halftime shows ever witnessed and proved immensely profitable for both Gaga and her record label.

Gaga revolutionised pop by breaking free from formulaic visuals and readily-obtainable aesthetics (think Pussycat Dolls, Kermit capes and diamond phones) previously prevalent. Her unconventional spectacles resonated with audiences who eagerly participated.

Gaga later signed with Def Jam Records but they dropped her three months into working together. Undeterred by this setback, she continued her explorations – performing burlesque shows, go-go dancing, and experimenting with drugs.

Gaga released her debut album ‘The Fame’ to mixed reviews from critics and the general public, yet her second effort ‘Born This Way’ proved more influential, producing hits like ‘Paparazzi’, ‘Loveame’ and ‘Poker Face’ – as well as winning her numerous awards.

Lady Gaga’s self-titled tour spanned more than two years and became one of the highest grossing debut headlining female artist tours ever seen. A remix album entitled ‘Born This Way: The Remixes’ was also released, alongside her DVD of Lady Gaga Presents Monster Ball Tour At Madison Square Garden DVD as well as 17 track deluxe edition of Born This Way The Collection album in November 2011.
