What Lady Gaga Just Said About Her Super Bowl Performance Makes Beyonce’s Look Even Worse

One could say Lady Gaga has a history of using shocking antics to stir controversy and draw attention to her music, a practice which made her rich and famous the world over. The pop star, who once wore a dress made of raw meat at MTV’s Video Music Awards to protest the military’s onetime policy toward gays, sang the National Anthem at Super Bowl 50 on Sunday.

Noticeably absent from her critically acclaimed rendition of the Star Spangled Banner were her antics, but Extra caught up with the singer after the game, and Gaga had a chance to describe the experience.

It was really amazing, the athletes were just kind of majestic standing up there, singing for the fans in the stands and all over the world, it was so cool. I just thought about the lyrics and what they really mean. They’ve been around a long time, so I thought about what they mean now, I just sang from my heart.

It’s kind of ancient history stuff, in the Greek and Roman history, performing for the greatest athletics in the world is the highest honor. I’m Italian and European, so for me it was such an honor as an American.

Speaking about the jets passing above, Gaga commented, “I promised myself I was going to look up to see them, because that would be the only time.” Gaga was with her mom, Cynthia, who expressed her motherly pride: “I’m very proud, but she was proud and honored to sing for her country.”

Born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta on March 28, 1986 in Yonkers, N.Y., Gaga attended New York University’s Tisch School for the Arts. Grammy, People’s Choice, and Golden Globe winning Gaga is a celebrated American singer, songwriter, and actress.

Girl Walks Into Class With Trump Sticker On Laptop… Something SICK Is Done To Her

We hear it nearly every day — our universities need to be a “safe space” for students.

But it appears one university didn’t worry too much if a young woman who supports Trump was free from harassment by a Black Lives Matter supporter. What the BLM activist did to the woman when he saw she supported Trump is an outrage.

Clifford Durand, a Black Lives Matter supporter attending St John’s University in New York City, was unhappy when 20-year-old Brianna Algazali walked into class with a Donald Trump sticker on her laptop computer. So he began tweeting that he was going to attack the girl and threatened to smash her computer.

At one point Durand tweeted out, “7000 retweets and I’ll smash this b***h’s computer.”

Four hours later the tweet had been re-tweeted over 16,000 times and someone finally told Algazali her picture and a threat against her safety was all over the school.

Algazali immediately went to the school administration to complain that she was being threatened. That wasn’t all she did, though. Eventually she tracked down Durand and they began to argue. The young woman demanded that Durand delete his tweet to which witnesses say he replied, “make me.”

At one point Algazali was so upset she threw her drink at him.

Durand then punched Algazali in the neck or chest, an action Durand admitted to on Twitter.

“SHE THREW HER STARBUCKS AT ME AFTER CUSSING ME OUT AND SHE GOT SHOVED IN THE NECK,” Durand tweeted after Algazali confronted him about his earlier threatening tweet.

Durand later deleted the admission.

School administrators are saying they are investigating the incident, but Durand has not been suspended so far. In fact, no serious action has been taken at all thus far.

The school also released a statement saying, “Thank you to everyone who reported the incident to us. This type of behavior will not be tolerated. Public Safety is handing the situation. Safety is our top priority. Any student in violation of our Code of Conduct is subject to our conduct process.”

As to Algazali, the New York Daily News reports she said she didn’t want to talk about the situation during the school’s investigation.

“St. John is handling it right now I don’t want to say anything,” Algazali said. “They’re handling it the best they can, but I fear for my safety”

Watch: 2 Police Officers Shot Dead, Sheriff Reveals Chilling Reason He Thinks It Happened

The incident started Wednesday with a lunchtime disturbance at a busy Panera restaurant in Abingdon, Maryland. It ended with two sheriff’s deputies dead and the man who killed them slain by fellow officers.

“We’ve lost two brothers,” said former Harford County Sheriff L. Jesse Bane.

Although witnesses were stunned and trying to make sense of the tragedy, Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey Gahler knew why it happened.

“He certainly targeted them. The suspect certainly took that action because (one slain deputy) was wearing a police uniform,” he told the media Wednesday, speaking of David Evans, 68, a grifter who often was at the restaurant.

On Wednesday, police were called because Evans was at the restaurant again. One deputy entered the restaurant.

“He (Evans) just took out his gun and shot him in the head right after the officer just asked him, ‘How was your day?,’” witness Sophia Faulkner said.

“All the people who were in there and witnessed this, in talking, think that it was probably a man who knew what he was doing with a gun because he shot directly into his head. I mean, the (officer) did not have a chance,” said Lynn Faulkner, Sophia’s mother.

Evans fled the restaurant, then shot and killed the second deputy. At least two deputies shot at Evans and killed him.

“He’s a frequent visitor in there. I’ve seen him myself in there. He kind of hangs there. He’s a homeless, disheveled man,” Lynn Faulkner said.

Evans was wanted on a warrant in Florida for assaulting an officer and was also wanted in Harford County.

The names of the deputies were not released as of Thursday morning. Both were taken to hospitals for treatment after being shot, but doctors were unable to save them.

“They’re both two outstanding deputies who served the citizens of this county faithfully,” said Gahler.

“We can hope and pray that the community will band together to give something back to those families — because it’s horrific,” Lynn Faulkner said.

“Today was a terrible reminder that the men and women in law enforcement risk their lives on every call,” said a statement released by Harford County Executive Barry Glassman. “As we grieve together in the spirit of community, let us also honor the service and sacrifice of these two fallen heroes.”

Wow: Trump Says 7 Shocking Words, Reveals How He REALLY Feels About The 2nd Amendment

Donald Trump revealed in an interview with a French magazine earlier this month that he is always armed and prepared to defend himself, and he wished the French government recognized that right.

Referring to the Paris attacks in October, the billionaire candidate told the magazine Valleurs Actuelles, “Do you really think that if there were people in the crowd, who were armed and trained, things would have turned out the same way?” 

“I don’t think so. They would have killed the terrorists. It makes sense,” he continued. I always have a gun on me. [emphasis added]. I can tell you that if I had been in the Bataclan [theater] or in the cafes I would have opened fire. I may have been killed, but I would have drawn.”

Trump brought up his commitment to the Second Amendment in this victory speech in New Hampshire on Tuesday night and made reference to the Paris attacks to illustrate the right’s importance. (See starting at 10:25 below)

“We are going to preserve our very sacred Second Amendment. There is not going to be any more chipping away at our Second Amendment,” the candidate promised. 

“Paris has the toughest gun laws in the world. France has toughest gun laws in the world. These animals go in. They start shooting….,” he said, noting that over one hundred people were killed and many more wounded. “If there were bullets going in the other direction, believe me it would have been a whole different story folks,” Trump stated. 

As reported by Western Journalism, the GOP front-runner released a Second Amendment position paper in September, which called for a national right to carry a firearm for those who have a conceal carry permit from their home state. It also called for military personnel being permitted to carry their personal firearms on military facilities and at recruiting centers.

Police Sergeant Says 1 Sentence About Beyonce’s Halftime Show, Immediately Put Under Investigation

Western Journalism has extensively reported on Super Bowl 50’s controversial half-time show. Beyonce’s backup dancers were clad in Black Panther Party style clothing, even pictured with clinched fists raised after the show. The show contained lyrics from Beyonce’s song, Formation, which has a controversial accompanying music video depicting police as white aggressors standing against the black community. One message written on a wall of the music video reads, “Stop shooting us.”

A Black Christian minister, Jonathan Gentry, criticized Beyonce for adhering to a double standard. He said if another group had used the half-time show to promote racial separatism, the black community would be up in arms, calling the president, and protesting in the streets.

Now, one Detroit police officer, a sergeant, is under investigation for posting an image, reflecting what many were already saying about the halftime show. The image was posted to the unnamed sergeant’s Facebook page. The image is a split image with Beyonce’s Black Panther Party clad dancers on top and the Ku Klux Klan on the bottom. A caption reads, “If the dance troupe at the top is okay for this year’s half-time show, then the one at a bottom should be okay for next year, right?”

Chief of Police, James Craig, confirmed the investigation is underway and elaborated on the Facebook post. “I received calls indirect and direct from employees throughout the organization troubled by it. Certainly this does not and shouldn’t represent our police officers. We work in a city that’s certainly well over 80 percent African-American and to post something that has to do with a hate group like the Ku Klux Klan is problematic,” Craig says. However, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, the New Black Panther Party is also considered a hate group. The SPLC writes, “The New Black Panther Party is a virulently racist and anti-Semitic organization whose leaders have encouraged violence against whites, Jews and law enforcement officers.”

It is unclear, at this point in the investigation who the sergeant is, if he will comment on the investigation, or if he will sue the city for violating his civil rights to free speech should any disciplinary action be taken against him.
