New York City’s gay Pride celebration kicked off on Friday night at Pier 26 with Lady Gaga opening with a speech and the national anthem. But as most appearances by Lady Gaga go, it was not without controversy.
Earlier in the week, the pop superstar tweeted her excitement over Wednesday’s Defense of Marriage Act ruling:
“As my LGBT fans and friends always said to me, I knew Lady Gaga when…well look who the star is now,” Gaga said. “Now, I get to say that I knew you when. Now I get to say I knew you when you suffered, when you felt unequal, when you felt there was nothing to look forward to. I knew you then, and I knew you when, but I really know you now.”
Lady Gaga then belted out her rendition of the “Star-Spangled Banner,” with the line “land of the free, home of the brave,” changed to “land of the free, home for the gay.”
