Before Clinton’s loss, Gaga performed at a midnight rally for her along with Jon Bon Jovi. The rally occurred in Raleigh, North Carolina this past Monday (Nov. 7). The late night rally served as a final round of support for the singer, and Bruce Springsteen, Bill and Chelsea, Barack and Michelle Obama were also in attendance.
The singer spoke at the event and wore the iconic uniform once donned by Michael Jackson when he met with George H.W. Bush and received the humanitarian award in 1990. The uniform was one of the 55 items Gaga bought when Jackson’s belongings were auctioned in 2012 according to CNN.
Prior to the election, Gaga also spoke out against new first lady Melania Trump and called her anti-bullying stance hypocrisy.
“@MELANIATRUMP to say u will stand for “anti-bullying” is hypocrisy,” the singer tweeted. “Your husband is one of the most notorious bullies we have ever witnessed.”
