Lady Gaga has been an integral part of the Joe Biden–Kamala Harris presidential campaign since she danced to “Bulletproof” to pump up the crowd at an election rally in November, which we’re not saying isn’t what gave them a 7 million popular-vote lead. Yesterday, Gaga appeared as a dignitary from Planet Chromatica to meet with the National Guard and share a message of peace and love. And on January 20, she sang the “Star-Spangled Banner” at the inauguration of Joe Biden as the 46th president of the United States and Kamala Harris as the first female and Black and South Asian vice-president (and, because this is Stefani we’re talking about, Jill Biden as the first Italian American First Lady). Gaga walked in looking like this was her coronation ceremony to rule over all of Genovia.
With a golden dove brooch the size of an actual dove atop her breast, ’twas a rousing “Star-Spangled Banner” indeed.
This was a performance, with mic-cord choreo that would make even amateur stand-up comedian Amy Klobuchar jealous.

Waving to the little people (the literal president of the United States). You can tell Cole Emhoff is laughing in this shot.
