Gaga came out to Childish Gambino’s “This Is America” and gave a short speech, saying, “Now is the time to vote like the country depends on it, because it does.” In a later performance, she sat at a white grand piano and sang her hits “Shallow” and “Yoü and I.”
Gaga also addressed earlier criticism of a video she made in support of Biden, wearing camouflage and drinking a beer. “I will not be told what I can and cannot wear to endorse our next president,” she said, adding, “I might not always look like you but I am you.”
The president’s director of communications had previously released a statement calling Gaga an “anti-fracking activist.”
