Lady Gaga Selected To Drop The New Year’s Eve Ball!
Is there anyone who’s banked more frequent flyer miles than [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Lady Gaga[/lastfm] this year?
Now Mother Monster is making the long trip home to a place near and dear to her heart…New York City!
And what’s more quintessentially New York than spending New Year’s Eve in Times Square? But she won’t just be taking in the sights, she’ll also be the one dropping the famous crystal ball when the clock strikes midnight!
Mayor Bloomberg has chosen Gaga as his special guest to push the button that releases the Times Square Waterford crystal ball at 11:59pm.
The pop star follows in the footsteps of some pretty big names. Bill and Hillary Clinton, Colin Powell, Muhammad Ali, and Rudy Giuliani have all pressed the button in previous years.
[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Lady Gaga[/lastfm] will also perform as part of ABC’s “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve.”
