Gaga was never scared of working her butt off and it looks like she has quite a busy month ahead of her. February turned out to be full of big, important events that she has to take part in. We say “she has to”, but, really, it’s an honor to be able to do all the things she has scheduled for the month of February.
It has recently been confirmed that Lady Gaga will be the one to sing the national anthem of the United States of America at the Super Bowl. It’s a gig many celebrities dream of doing. After all, Super Bowl is one of the biggest sport events in America and it’s sure to have millions of people glued to their TV screens. This won’t be the first time that Gaga belts out the Star Spangled Banner in public. She’s done it before at the New York LGBT pride celebration, back in 2013, when she famously changed the lyrics of the anthem to “the land of the free, and a home for the gays” while waving around a rainbow flag instead of the star spangled banner. It was an awesome move in our humble opinion, yet it was quite controversial. We probably won’t see a repeat of that at the Super Bowl, but we’re sure Gaga will find other ways to make her performance memorable.
Lady Gaga is also set to pay tribute to David Bowie at the Grammys, on the 15th of February. There will be a special segment of the show dedicated to David Bowie. It seems fitting to have Gaga pay tribute to Bowie. He was one of her biggest inspirations. From the very beginning of her career Gaga has been ambitious, odd and exciting, and if you think about it, it was Bowie who opened up that opportunity for her and many others. In the wise words of Caitlin Moran “Whenever pop is ambitious, it’s thanks to Bowie”.
If all this wasn’t enough, let us remind you that Gaga is also nominated for an Oscar for the best original song “Til It Happens To You” used in the movie The Hunting Ground.
