Review: Lady Gaga Bares Her Diamond Heart At Joanne Show In Las Vegas
Sorry, Joanne. There’s a new girl in town.
In a time when the world needs it most, Lady Gaga demonstrates perseverance, inclusivity and love on the Joanne World Tour.
Lady Gaga took the stage at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Friday, August 11, to perform her sixth show of the Joanne World Tour. Meanwhile, on the other side of the country in Charlottesville, Virginia, white supremacists and alt-right groups marched with torches and Nazi flags. The President placed blame “on many sides,” a deplorable statement at best, and prompted a response from the pop star.
“I pray a true leader will rise to expel hatred from America. This is not US! This is Anti-American,” Gaga wrote on Twitter. “I know we are not created to hate each other, but to help & love.” She also asked followers to “tweet positive messages” with the hashtags #BeKind and #ThisIsNotUS. Then Gaga addressed Trump directly: “too afraid to do the right thing cuz you will lose votes? Doesn’t matter, younger generation has the answer to #BeKind.” Then Mother Monster mobilized Little Monsters: “Tweet @realDonaldTrump & tell him how you think he could #BeKind and be a better leader.”
