Lady Gaga Launches Contest for Fans to Watch Super Bowl Halftime Show

"Fandom can inspire a young girl to be an artist like me. It can give somebody the courage to speak up or come out," says the singer. "Even turn a room full of strangers into a family for three hours on a Sunday."

Want to be Lady Gaga's plus-one for her Pepsi Zero Sugar Super Bowl LI halftime show in Houston, Texas, next year?

The "Million Reasons" singer has announced her "Guest of Honor" contest alongside Pepsi and the NFL, asking all her Monsters to show out for a chance to catch her performance from the sidelines during the world's biggest sporting event.

To celebrate, Gaga offered a special message to her loyalists with a "Fanifesto" video. "Fandom can inspire a young girl to be an artist like me. It can give somebody the courage to speak up or come out," she says in the clip. "Even turn a room full of strangers into a family for three hours on a Sunday."

Several fans who have confessed their love for Gaga have already been selected for the special opportunity to see her perform at Houston's NRG Stadium on Feb. 5, 2017.

She adds, "I'm absolutely honored to be doing the Pepsi halftime show. We've already been thinking of all the different ways we can make this a special experience for all the NFL fans. I'm even planning to bring a few fans along with me because it's not just going to be my moment — it's going to be our moment."
