The relationship between the new president and the pop star dates back to their efforts to prevent sexual violence on college campuses during the Obama administration

When Joe Biden’s transition team confirmed last week that Lady Gaga would play the national anthem when he was inaugurated, it made perfect sense. During the Obama administration, the pop star and former vice president worked together on campaigns to prevent sexual violence, and as a she performed her song “Until It Happened to You”, Biden was there to introduce her at the 2016 Oscars. In the run-up to the 2020 elections, Gaga became an avid supporter of Biden and even accompanied him on the campaign

Before going on stage Wednesday morning, she tweeted about the importance of the moment:

In a black and red Schiaparelli robe with a golden dove detail, she played the national anthem with the Marine Band.She appeared in her typical theatrical task with trills, hand gestures and a few admiring looks directed at Biden himself went, she said “I love you” to former President Barack Obama

“As an American living in Paris, this ensemble is a love letter to the country I miss so much and to an artist whose art I have admired for so long”said Daniel Roseberry, Schiaparelli designer Maison Schiaparelli is honored to have this opportunity to dress the legendary Lady Gaga on this historic inauguration day. God bless Lady Gaga and God bless Americaâ ????

She arrived in DC on Tuesday and posted on Instagram her hopes for the inauguration, along with a photo taken in the Capitol Rotunda, “I pray tomorrow will be a day of peace for all Americans” She wrote A day for love, not for hate A day of acceptance, no fear A day to dream of our future joy as a country ???? Her braids and white cloak from Givenchy were later compared to Princess Leia when a photo of her speaking to a group of National Guardsmen circulated online
