On what was arguably Lady Gaga's most important day, the singer left the lavish home on Memorial Drive where she had been living over the past week and stopped in at St. Martin's Episcopal Church for the 8 am Sunday service. While her bodyguard remained outside, she slipped into a back pew for the Holy Eucharist service conducted by the Rev. Sarah Condon.
There is no music at this service, only a sermon and communion, so Gaga did not have to worry about straining her voice. But if she was there to ask for divine intervention, she surely received it with a Super Bowl halftime performance that has been generally recognized as one of the best ever.
After her show stopper at NRG Stadium (where Donatella Versace was backstage to help her get ready), the singer showered, got dressed and went up to New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft's suite with her parents to say hello. She greeted good friends singer Elton John and his husband, David Furnish, and Houston social icon Lynn Wyatt. Wyatt had become pals with Gaga while attending John's White Tie and Tiaras Ball in England in 2010. (Also in the suite were John Legend and Chrissy Teigen, while in the next door box were Rupert Murdoch and Jerry Hall.)
