In a Break from Tradition, Lady Gaga Won't Bring All-Star Guests to the Super Bowl

Wait, so Beyoncé won't be there?

Lady Gaga is taking on this year's Super Bowl halftime show (opens in new tab), and her performance will certainly be a break from the norm. While most half-time performers bring in guests (preferably named Beyoncé), Gaga will be doing the show solo—and she's already rehearsing.

Billboard (opens in new tab) reports that Mother Monster is the eighth star in halftime history to pass on guests (Coldplay brought Queen Bey and Bruno Mars last year), so it's fair to say she'll be bringing her all.

Meanwhile, a report that Gaga has been asked not to talk politics at the Super Bowl appears to be untrue. At least that's the vibe we're picking up from a source who told Billboard: "It's bullshit."

Hmmm, considering Gaga is a vocal supporter the LGBTQ community and women's rights, we're hoping her show will be at least a *little* political. After all, it's just Gaga being Gaga!
