Was that Ally from A Star is Born? Or a slowed-down version of a song from ARTPOP Act II? No, it was just Lady Gaga performing the “hit” “Hold My Hand” from the Oscar-nominated, Tom Cruise–starring film Top Gun: Maverick. At the 2023 Academy Awards, Mother Monster / Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta / the future Harley Quinn performed the track while the ABC camera zoomed in way too much on her face. Were her lips chapped? Yes. Was she fully Joker-fied, sitting on a stool? Potentially. Was she the only person in a room full of (at least) 100 people? Always. Watch Gaga say “Hold my hand” a lot below.
