Lady Gaga was one of several performers during the inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris on Wednesday, singing the national anthem ahead of the graduation ceremony. After the event, Garth Brooks, who was ready to perform “Amazing Grace”, used Twitter to congratulate Gaga and wrote that she was “fabulous”.
“You were fabulous today and every day,” tweeted Brooks. “A national treasure. Please tell Frederick and Miss Sarah thank you for me! They rescued a cowboy today. Oh, and ask Miss Sarah to hug her mother for me! Love, g.” It is likely that the country star referred to Gaga’s hairdresser and makeup artist, Frederic Aspiras and Sarah Tanno, respectively, which apparently showed that they helped him with his own appearance during Wednesday̵

Gaga tweeted on Wednesday that it was my honor to sing the national anthem at the inauguration. “I want to sing during a ceremony, a transition, a moment of change – between POTUS 45 and 46. For me, this means a lot,” she wrote, adding, “My intention is to acknowledge our past, to be healing for our present. and passionate about a future where we work lovingly together. I will sing for the hearts of all people. Respectfully and kindly, Lady Gaga. “The New York native also explained one detail of her clothes, a large gold pin she was wearing that depicted a dove with an olive branch.

Brooks said at a news conference Monday that he was hoping to send a message of unity with his performance. “This is a big day in our household. This is not a political statement, this is a statement of unity,” he told reporters. “This is history, and it’s an honor to serve. That’s how I get to serve this country.”
“We’re more divided than ever, so the bridge that brings us together … I’m possibly the only Republican in this place, but it stretches and loves each other, because that’s what gets us through the most divided times that we have, ”he added.“ I want the shared times to be behind us. I want to be able to be different in opinion and hug each other in the same football match. “
