Times Square Ball Drop Honors Go to Lady Gaga

Mayor Bloomberg will get some help from Lady Gaga when the Times Square Ball drops tonight at Midnight. Several celebrities will be attending and/or performing in Times Square tonight to celebrate New Year’s Eve, but the Fame Monster has the primetime task of lowering the ball.

Lady Gaga wrote on Twitter:

“I’m so looking forward to performing on NYE+dropping the Ball with Mayor Bloomberg! What an honor as a New Yorker!”

Mayor Bloomberg also said that he was looking forward to it. Bloomberg said that he has never met Lady Gaga but was looking forward to see her perform on New Year’s Eve.

Bloomberg said:

“I have never met Lady Gaga. I saw her once perform at the museum, the Metropolitan Museum. I thought she was a great entertainer. But I do not personally know her and I’m looking forward to it.”

Zap2It reports that Lady Gaga will push the Waterford Crystal button that will drop the giant ball above Times Square. Hillary Clinton, Muhammad Ali, and Rudy Giuliani have had the honor of dropping the ball in the past.

Lady Gaga will also be performing during “Dick Clark’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest.” Justin Bieber, Pitbull and Hot Chelle Rae will also be performing in New York for New Year’s Eve. Broadway World reports that The Band Perry, Blink-182, Florence + The Machine, Gym Class Heroes, Nicki Minaj, and will.i.am will be performing on the West Coast.
