For all of you out there that are going to spend News Year Eve at Home in front of the TV. Lady Gaga will be dropping the ball in 2012.

 

She will push the Waterford Crystal button that causes the ball in Times Square to drop at 11:59PM on New Year’s Eve. Remember Gaga is New Yorker so this has to be a real thrill for her.

The New York Post says Gaga was personally selected by Mayor Michael Bloomberg to serve as his special guest who pushes the button for the final minute of 2011. Previous button pushers include politicos like Bill and Hillary Clinton, Colin Powell and former Manhattan mayor Rudy Giuliani.

Gaga will already be in Times Square as part of the ‘Dick Clark New Year’s Rockin’ Eve’ special with Ryan Seacrest as she closes the book on what was the best year of her still young career.
