In a lot of ways, Lady Gaga has been the victim of a compressed career arc. Her first single went to No. 1 in 2009; within a year she was the biggest pop star in the world, within two years she was already struggling through her Difficult Second LP, and within four years her popularity was markedly on the wane. And so in 2016, when Gaga was announced as the halftime headliner for Super Bowl LI, it felt almost like a throwback choice, even coming in the midst of the promo campaign for her much-hyped fourth album Joanne — particularly after that album was released to respectable sales but mixed reviews, and its singles stalled early and often on the charts.
