Lady Gaga, Bon Jovi Performed at Midnight Rally for Hillary Clinton In North Carolina
Lady Gaga and Jon Bon Jovi performed at a midnight rally for Hillary Clinton late last night. The “Perfect Illusion” singer has been publicly supporting Clinton throughout the election. The rally took place in Raleigh, North Carolina this past Monday night (Nov. 7).
Billboard reports that the rally (the night before election day) served as the final round of support for Clinton. The rally was Jovi’s second Clinton event of the election eve, as he also appeared in Philadelphia alongside Bruce Springsteen, Bill and Chelsea, and Barack and current first lady Michelle Obama.
Gaga spoke at the event, and wore an iconic uniform once donned by pop superstar Michael Jackson. The outfit was worn by Jackson when he met with George H. W. Bush at the White House in 1990 and was given a humanitarian award. CNN reports that the item was one of 55 Gaga bought when his belongings were auctioned off in 2012.

The singer also spoke out against potential first lady Melania Trump this past Thursday (Nov. 3) and called her anti-bullying stance “hypocrisy.” “@MELANIATRUMP to say u will stand for “anti-bullying” is hypocrisy,” Gaga tweeted. “Your husband is one of the most notorious bullies we have ever witnessed.”

She also released a string of tweets to her Little Monsters encouraging them to vote, the most notable reading, “#Vote #GoVote I’ve been traveling the world. Our election is an international issue. If 'he wins' we will be in a weak position globally.”
