NRA urges Lady Gaga to ditch politics at Super Bowl Halftime Show

NRA News, which describes itself online as an organisation that tells "the truths and stories the mainstream media refuse to cover", has urged pop sensation Lady Gaga to leave politics out of her Super Bowl half-time show

The National Rifle Association (NRA) interviewed conservative political commentator Bill Whittle and he expressed his disappointment at how the NFL had “chosen a gigantic progressive mouthpiece for their Super Bowl halftime” slot. 

He said: “I can remember days when Michael Jackson or somebody would do the Super Bowl and politics didn’t enter into it because they understood that they’re performing for the entire nation and not for the staff at MSNBC."

Whittle added: “I think if Lady Gaga comes out there and makes this an anti-Trump tirade, I think that’s really the final step of the declaration of war between our pop culture people and the actual citizens."

Earlier this week, Lady Gaga spoke at a press conference for the event, which will air tonight (February 5), and revealed that her set will promote equality: "The only statements that I'll be making during the half-time show are the ones that I have been consistently making during my career. I believe in a passion for inclusion, I believe in the spirit of equality.
