It’s Super Bowl Sunday. Oh Ya!  And Lady Gaga Is Ready To Rock The HalfTime Show


Lady Gaga, Super Bowl 2017 Halftime Show
Guess what everyone?  Super Bowl Sunday gives you another reason to go off your diet – you know, the one you resolved to commit to  with the dawn of the New Year?  

Well, resolutions can take a hike. For a day or so. Super Bowl has you covered. Someone told me that calories don’t count on Super Bowl Sunday so I am going to test it out. Want to join?

This year, Super Bowl Sunday is on – you guessed it – Sunday, January 5th on Fox at the NRG Stadium in Houston Texas. The event will mark the 50th anniversary year of the first Super Bowl, which was played on January 15, 1967. 

Singing the American National Anthem will be country star Luke Bryan. And Lady Gaga is set to entertain you during the halftime show.   You can read about her “high in the sky“plans over at EW.Com.  

“Lady Gaga is a one-of-a kind artist and performer. Her new single “Perfect Illusion” off her upcoming fifth studio album “Joanne,” due out October 21st debuted at #1 on iTunes in 60 countries. She holds the distinction of generating three consecutive Number One albums on the Billboard Hot 100, has won an aforementioned six Grammy Awards, and was recently featured as Billboard’s “Woman of the Year.” She has amassed an outstanding 30 million global album sales and 150 million single sales, making her one of the best-selling musicians of all time. Lady Gaga expanded her talents to television last Fall when she appeared as The Countess on the fifth season of Ryan Murphy’s anthology series “American Horror Story: Hotel” for FX Network. Subsequently, she won the Golden Globe Award for “Best Actress — Miniseries or Television Film” for her performance on the show. Next up she will star in the Bradley Cooper-directed film “A Star is Born” for Warner Bros. Pictures.”

Lady Gaga rendered a gorgeous performance of the American National Anthem last year.  It was a credible and impressive warm-up to what we can expect from her at the halftime show. She is nothing but the consummate professional. And don’t forget to have a listen to her new pop-rock album, Joanne, on Apple Music or Amazon.

And, to make the event truly special, former President George H.W. Bush and First Lady Barbara Bush, both fully recovered from pneumonia which caused them to be hospitalized, will be in charge of the coin toss. How sweet is this?  So happy that they are on the road to recovery. 

In case you don’t fully understand the logic behind the coin toss (which I didn’t. I’m all about the music), I have you covered courtesy of LiveHealthy:

“The team that wins the opening coin toss earns the right to determine how the game starts. That team has a few options, depending on its game plan. A team can either receive the opening kick-off and give its offense the first crack at putting points on the scoreboard, or boot the ball to the opponent, which guarantees possession to start the second half. The team that wins the flip can also defer. This means they select which end-zone they want to defend, which grants the opposition the right to claim the opening kick-off.”

Best of luck to the stars of the superbowl, the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons.
