This year is no different, especially after Lady Gaga confirmed that she will be performing at the event's Halftime Show, tweeting "It's not an illusion. The rumors are true. This year the SUPER BOWL goes GAGA!".
Lady Gaga isn't just famously known for her exquisite and daring style but also for her straight-forward opinions about her roots as a Roman Catholic as well as her views about embracing uniqueness, equality, and self-acceptance.
Although some people may not connect with the famous performer, Lady Gaga wishes to use her time in the limelight to be able to be in tune with those who aren't fan of her music.
According to the performer, she also wants to use the opportunity of being in the spotlight to show those who doesn't establish a connection with her that they are really just the same.
Her song, "Born This Way" embodies her views about one of the most sought after teachings in the Christian church - equality and self-acceptance. It has also been the anthem of the LGBT Christians who seeks for acceptance for their difference.
"I want to free [my fans] of their fears," Lady Gaga addresses her fans stating that they [fans] can create their own space in the world and that she is teaching people to worship themselves and embrace their uniqueness. The performer even referred to her Monster Ball concert tour as a "religious experience" and "pop culture Church".
The performer also defended her Catholic Faith by reacting to an article questioning her lifestyle while at the same time leading a typical Hollywood life void of Christian values.
In an Instagram post, Lady Gaga explained herself by saying, "Mary Magdalene washed the feet of Christ and was protected and loved by him. A prostitute. Someone society shames as if she and her body are a man's trash can. He loved her and did not judge. He let her cry over him and dry his feet with the hair of a harlot. We are not just "celebrities" we are humans and sinners, children, and our lives are not void of values because we struggle. We are as equally forgiven as our neighbor. God is never a trend no matter who the believer."
