Lady Gaga has revealed that she wore a bulletproof dress at Joe Biden's presidential inauguration last January, just two weeks after pro-Trump rioters tried to overturn the result of the presidential election.
Gaga performed The Star-Spangled Banner at the US Capitol before Biden was sworn in as the 46th President of the United States.

Speaking to Vogue magazine, the singer said, "That has to be one of the proudest days of my whole life. Like many people in America, I felt a deep fear when Trump was president, and ushering 45 out and 46 in is something I'll be able to tell my children all about.
"Singing in a Schiaparelli bulletproof dress. I don’t know if people know this about me, but if I weren’t who I am today, I would have been a combat journalist. That was one of my dreams."
"When I was at the Capitol, the day before the inauguration, I remember walking around and looking for evidence of the insurrection [the Capitol riots on January 6]." she added.
Gaga supported the Biden campaign and performed at drive-in rallies for the President ahead of voting day.
In the lead-up to the inauguration on January 20, she appealed for "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."
Lady Gaga will soon be seen in Ridley Scott’s new film House Of Gucci in which she plays Patrizia Reggiani, the ex-wife of Maurizio Gucci.
House Of Gucci will be released in Ireland on November 26.
