  4. Sorry, but why is sooo white and everyone else is not? So some some drag queen went up there and lip-synched to Gag-gag? Hmmm.

  7. One of the best, if not THE best renditions of the U.S. national anthem that I've ever heard from one of today's singers. And she performed it acapella!

  8. Whitney's still the all-time best, but Gaga nailed it nicely. Well done!

  9. Geoff, while I agree that Whitney did wonderfully, she did it with a backing track at the super bowl. Gaga did it straight, and acapella to boot.

  10. So much more fun when she's on a break/sidelined.

  11. Not to take anything away from Whitney, but her version was lip synched, as are some other televised performances at sports events. It's still a classic.

    Discussing versions of the song shouldn't be about comparison - Gaga's version was so moving, even more so for being acapella. And how often do you hear it at gay pride events, during an historic week like this, from a performer who's put so much attention on LGBT issues?

    Her Good Morning America interview on HIV & safer sex had one of the best comments I've ever heard from a celeb on the topic (starting at 5:49):

  13. She did a great job but idiots that cheer
    during the National Anthem ruined it. SHUT UP!!

  14. Backing track or not, Whitney Houston's powerful version of The Star Spangled Banner can never be surpassed, IMO, but Lady Gaga sounded fantastic, without a doubt.

  15. Gorgeous - sparse embellishments, pitch perfect. She is quite a musician.

  16. poor whitney, committed suicide by all the substance abuse.

    enough with the gag, please.

  17. Very nice performance. Im sure the Madonna and Britney trolls will have NOTHIN but nice things to say.
    And to those who keep whining at Whitney lip syncing...watch jer Welcome Home Heroes performance where sing sings the exact same version live in front of our troops...then have...a...seat...

  18. Wanna see what Gaga looks like in street art style? http://bit.ly/19jUZ7j

  19. That incredible performance from Gaga made me proud to be American - which is weird because I'm British.

  20. That speech was disgusting. It was all about HER and how she is the victim. Once again, she takes an event and makes it all about HER. I cant believe you guys are falling for this.

    Posted by: eric b | Jun 29, 2013 12:39:56 PM


  21. That speech was cringeworthy. She is completely using our community to promote herself as the messiah for gay rights. That is pretty disgusting.

    Posted by: toolshed | Jun 29, 2013 12:51:28 PM


  22. This feels... ¿fake? Yeah, it feels fake. I don't know, the fact that her new album is coming soon this year AND NOW she appears in public supporting the gay community is really weird. This speech lacks of sincerity and the tears are WAY too much, in my very own opinion.

  23. Good voice, but that speech was....horrific. she is not helping the gay community. She is basically inserting herself into a cause others have worked hard for.

    Posted by: lance | Jun 29, 2013 1:29:12 PM


  24. I can not believe the depths that she will go to....

    For me, any talent she has is completely drowned in a sea of lies and garbage.

    Yes Gaga, your "struggle" at your rich prep school where you claim you didn't fit in because you had a big nose is exactly like the struggles of gay youth. Uh-huh. I can only imagine how horrible it was for you growing up in your privileged little world.

    Could you reference any of your own work/songs more than you did?

    She hasn't had a decent song in years and has pandered to our community again and again and yet so many treat her as some sort of icon or goddess.

    Wake up people- don't let this huckster speak for you!

  25. that Gaga inspires so many young people to love themselves and embrace who they are and feel LOVED is wonderful, wonderful, wonderful.

    keep it up, Lass.
