Did Lady Gaga Copy Yuri During Her Super Bowl Half-Time Show? Twitter Says Yes

When Lady Gaga made her spectacular sparkly entrance during her Super Bowl LI halftime show, not only did she resemble a superhero in that bedazzled leotard and pointy shoulders — she also reminded people of Mexican superstar Yuri.

Some people legit thought they were watching Yuri on stage.

Between the sparkly stones and pointy shoulders, we can’t really blame them.

But Yuri herself was having a field day with these comparisons.

Yuri jokingly tweeted that her lawyers were looking into that matter, and that there’s always someone out there imitating her. Damn! ? But that’s not where the beef ended.

She even went on to joke about why Lady Gaga didn’t wear the outfit you see below.

Yuri joked that the costume pictured above couldn’t be replicated because she couldn’t afford it. We’re sure Lady Gaga could replicate any costume she wanted, but damn, get it Yuri!

She even responded when fans asked why she didn’t perform instead of Gaga.

Y sigue con lo de no les alcanzó.

But in the end Yuri showed some love to Gaga by sharing this picture. ?

Hmmmm, is she playing us?

The 84 Lumber Company Owner Told The New York Times She Voted For Trump


The 84 Lumber Company Owner Told The New York Times She Voted For Trump

Every year, companies spend millions on Super Bowl commercial spots to advertise to the masses that watch the game. For years, companies have tried to outdo each other with wacky, comedic commercials. This year, several commercials showcased political messages — some more subtle than others.

One commercial getting a lot of attention post-Super Bowl is 84 Lumber Company’s commercial that depicts a mother and daughter making the dangerous trip from Mexico to the U.S by foot and by truck, only to be greeted at the border by a depiction of President Trump’s border wall. 84 Lumber Company didn’t skimp on their digital depiction of the wall and even included a “big beautiful door.”

The Pennsylvania-based lumber company faced some pushback from FOX when they submitted their commercial for airing and they were forced to rework the project without showing the border wall.

“I still can’t even understand why it was censored,” Maggie Magerko, the owner of 84 Lumber, told the New York Times. “In fact, I’m flabbergasted by that in today’s day and age. It’s not pornographic, it’s not immoral, it’s not racist.”

Some people thought the commercial was criticism about Trump’s wall and immigration policies.

Others were unhappy about a company promoting illegal immigration.

Of course, #Boycott84Lumber is already a hashtag.

The owner of 84 Lumber, who voted for Trump, has come forward to say that the company is not supporting undocumented immigrants nor illegal immigration.

“We do not condone illegal immigration. The journey of the mother and daughter symbolizes grit, dedication, and sacrifices. Characteristics that we look for in our people at 84 Lumber,” the official 84 Lumber Facebook page said in response to comments. “President Trump has previously said there should be a ‘big beautiful door in the wall so that people can come into this country legally.’ We couldn’t agree more.”

Some people seem to have understood the message of the commercial from the start.

“I am all about those people who are willing to fight and go that extra yard to make a difference and then if they have to, you know, climb higher, go under, do whatever it takes to become a citizen. I am all for that 110 percent,” Magerko, told the New York Times after telling the newspaper that she supported Trump. “But do I want cartels? Hell, no.”

Instead, 84 Lumber Company says the journey the mother and daughter took was a “symbolic journey toward becoming legal American citizens.”

But that didn’t quell some angry people who thought the commercial and description diminish the danger immigrants face.
