Watch: Lady Gaga Performs National Anthem at NYC Pride

July 1, 2013 11:41 am

Lady Gaga returned to the stage on Friday and performed the “The Star-Spangled Banner” at NYC Pride.

After key decisions made by the Supreme Court striking down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), the 27-year-old star took the liberties to make some changes to the National Anthem.

The pop star has been a closer follower and advocate of DOMA and tweeted: “We stand tall today. #DomaStruckDown So many fought for so long. Be proud, the prejudice are now the minority.”

Gaga ended her live performance with a fitting twist: “Oh say, does our star-spangled flag of pride yet wave / for the land of the free / and the home for the gay.”

Don’t let Gaga’s recent absence from the public eye fool you — she sounds as good as ever as she hits impressive high notes in the clip.

Her new album ARTPOP, which she has been busy working on, is set to come out within the year.
