The National Football League has stated that any rumors of Lady Gaga being told not to bring up politics are completely false.
Contrary to what an Entertainment Tonight report said, Lady Gaga, the halftime entertainment at this year’s Super Bowl, has no restrictions on what she can and cannot say, according to the NFL.
Entertainment Tonight “cited a source close to the halftime show” who stated that Lady Gaga “was told by the NFL that she cannot say anything or bring anything up about the election, or mention Donald Trump.”
The NFL refuted that comment with this statement:
“This is unsourced nonsense from people trying to stir up controversy where there is none,” the NFL said. “The Super Bowl is a time when people really come together. Lady Gaga is focused on putting together an amazing show for fans and we love working with her on it; we aren’t going to be distracted by this.”
Lady Gaga, who has been very vocal about her support for Hillary Clinton during the 2016 Presidential campaign, will be the main performance at the Feb. 5 Super Bowl in Houston. Gaga has also been known to be very “vocal” in her criticisms of President-elect Donald Trump.
