Social Media Goes Gaga for Lady Gaga

Was it the drones that first caught everyone’s eyes, or was it the fact that Lady Gaga was standing on top of the Houston Texans football stadium at halftime? I’m not going to be the one to decide for you, but if you looked at social media during the halftime show millions of people had their opinions posted. According to Forbes, “There were 2.2 million tweets about the #PepsiHalftime show during the 20-minute live performance; counting the 20 minutes before and 10 minutes following the show, there were 5.1 million tweets about #Gaga’s performance, and Lady Gaga was mentioned on Twitter 2.1 million times between 7:50 and 8:40 p.m. EST.” (Madeline Berg,1).  Lady Gaga was ON FIRE! She went all out during her performance, and I’m not surprised. She took this opportunity and gave it her unique twist that left social media #spechless. Celebrities were even applauding her performance seconds after. screen-shot-2017-02-05-at-11-11-25-pm

It really says something about the #PepsiHalftime performance when many celebrities are so happy for her rather than being jealous of her. I can’t remember watching a halftime performance this miraculous in the past 10 years, and that’s because there hasn’t been. Lady Gaga did IT. She is IT. She won IT. The Super Bowl may have been between the Falcons and the Patriots, but Lady Gaga won the Super Bowl in 2017.
