Lady Gaga makes statement with stunning Super Bowl performance

Lady Gaga dazzled the Super Bowl on Sunday with a high-tech, tightly choreographed half-time show celebrating American diversity and unity.

Gaga, a sworn foe of US President Donald Trump, kept with the game's guidelines to steer clear of overt politics.

She opened with This Land Is Your Land, the anthem by leftist folk legend Woody Guthrie that has come to be seen as an alternative national anthem for the US.

Gaga then mixed up her biggest songs - from Let's Dance and Poker Face to Born This Way - an anthem of inclusion. She was backed up by an upbeat, ethnically diverse cast of dancers, who at one point joined in a group hug.- AFP
