Social media tonight erupted with lavish praise from the left and the right after Lady Gaga’s live performance of the national anthem at Super Bowl 50. Today reports:
At Super Bowl 50, Lady Gaga hit all the right notes. The singer kicked off football’s biggest night of the year with a stirring, 2-minute, 28-second rendition of the American National Anthem that was reminiscent of the late Whitney Houston’s performance at the same event, 25 years earlier. Famous for wild outfits earlier in her career, Gaga wore a red sparkly suit and matching eye-shadow, but the primary focus was on her performance, accompanied only by a pianist. Gaga may have been inspired by Houston’s version. Appearing in a star-studded, pre-taped segment about Super Bowl memories, Gaga called the late pop star’s Super Bowl XXV performance of the song “the most beautiful thing I’d ever heard.”
And of course Ben Shapiro had to be a douche. Even his fans were annoyed.
