On the heels of the Super Bowl, Lady Gaga is giving Chicago a reason to love her.
The reviews are in, and Lady Gaga’s powerfully patriotic Super Bowl halftime performance is getting lots of thumbs up.
The pop star, who flew around NRG Stadium hooked on wires for much of the show, lit up Houston with hits like “Just Dance,” “Million Reasons,” and “Bad Romance.”
But she also belted out portions of “God Bless America” and “This Land Is Your Land” during a 12-minute performance that was somehow “pro-gay, pro-unity, pro-feminist, pro-weirdo, and pro-fabulous” all at once, The Daily Beast’s Kevin Fallon noted.
At a moment when partisan divisiveness seems almost palpable, Gaga managed to balance being both her rebellious self and the breath of fresh air America needed.
