Lady Gaga Flies into Super Bowl 51 for Flashy Halftime Show; Announces Joanne World Tour After

Lady Gaga literally dropped in on Super Bowl VI -- jumping from the roof of NRG Stadium suspended by wires, delivering on her promise of a show that was both full of of "love and compassion and kindness," and was also "tremendously athletic."  The show began with Gaga atop the stadium, singing a few lines of "God Bless America" and "This Land Is Your Land," before reciting the last line from the Pledge of Allegiance, "one nation, under God, with liberty and justice for all."  That's when she literally took the plunge, head-first, diving into the stadium where she was…

Carson Kressley Weighs In on Gaga's Super Bowl Fashion Plans

Lady Gaga's Super Bowl performance will include a number of costume changes, but are we going to see crazy, over-the-top Gaga of the past, or the more toned down Gaga we've seen lately? One fashion expert predicts we'll get the best of both worlds from the singer. Fashion expert, author and reality star Carson Kressley tells ABC Radio, "I think it's gonna be a combination of both [looks]. I don't think it's gonna be as kooky as it was when she first hit the scene, but I think it'll be ramped up more than her Joanne album look...the pastel pink…
