I know a lot of you guys wanted me to post this video earlier, but since I hadn't had anything planned to commemorate the Fourth of July, I thought I'd save it for today! So get your mini-flags ready my American friends as Lady Gaga delivers her version of The Star-Spangled Banner!
I should mention that this performance actually took place last week, a few days after the royal smack-down the Supreme Court gave Prop 8 of the Defense of Marriage Act. Being such a momentous occasion for the LGBT community, it was unsurprising Mother Monster decided to make this her first public appearance since her hip-operation in February. In addition to the Star-Spangled Banner, Gaga also gave the New York crowd a little speech thanking the community for their support.
Check out Lady Gaga's speech, and theatrical performance of the American National Anthem (which starts at 1.04) below. "Land of the Gay", eh?
