Lady Gaga, an active opponent of the newly elected U.S. President Donald Trump, will headline the Super Bowl Halftime Show this Sunday, and fans are speculating that she will use the show as a medium of protest against Trump's victory on presidency.
However, in a recent radio interview with Atlanta's 98.5 KLUC, Lady Gaga confirmed she won't be mentioning politics during her much-awaited performance. She explained that she doesn't want to say something divisive during the show because she thinks it will only make things worse.
"No. That's not what the show is about," Gaga said when asked if she will talk about Trump on Sunday. "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," she told the radio.
"I mean, the thing is 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," Gaga explained. "And I would like to use 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."
