Chromatica’s commander-in-chief Lady Gaga shares powerful message of peace ahead of inauguration
In the final hours of the Donald Trump presidency, Gaga uploaded a casual photo of herself that single-handedly revived the Baroque art movement.
Wearing all-white in a billowing sheath cape and face mask, the rotunda of the Capitol complex framing her like almost like a halo, Gaga delivered a soulful sermon on social media about what Joe Biden’s inauguration as the 46th US president means to her.
Lady Gaga: Inauguration is a day of ‘dreaming of our future joy’
“I pray tomorrow will be a day of peace for all Americans,” Pope Gaga the First began, The Apotheosis of Washington visible behind her. “A day for love, not hatred. A day for acceptance not fear.
I pray tomorrow will be a day of peace for all Americans. A day for love, not hatred. A day for acceptance not fear. A day for dreaming of our future joy as a country. A dream that is non-violent, a dream that provides safety for our souls. Love, from the Capitol 🇺🇸 pic.twitter.com/fATHiJHCq0

“A day for dreaming of our future joy as a country. A dream that is non-violent, a dream that provides safety for our souls.
“Love, from the Capitol,” Gaga concluded, capping it with a US flag emoji. She may be the first prime minister of Chromatica, but Stefani Germanotta enjoys dual citizenship as an American-born citizen.
The “Stupid Love” hitmaker will Wednesday afternoon (20 January) perform the national anthem for the swearing-in ceremony that will take place in the West Wing of the Capitol.
Dressed in a “Joe” sweatshirt, the 34-year-old said she was “deeply honoured” to be given the chance to sing “The Star-Spangled Banner” in an Instagram post.
With Trump heading for the exit door of the White House and Washington bracing itself for far-right unrest at what is meant to be a peaceful transfer of power, Biden will become president in a vastly scaled-back inauguration ceremony.
Much the ornate glitz has been downsized or made virtual amid the coronavirus pandemic, with a cross-network televised special featuring Demi Lovato airing instead of the usual ceremonial balls.
In the meantime, we look forward to the incoming deluge of ‘Trump-Biden transition to the tune of “Chromatica II” transitioning to “911”‘ memes.
