The 'Pokerface' hitmaker admits she was overwhelmed when she heard that the 77-year-old politician, alongside his vice president Kamala Harris, will take charge of the White House.

In a video posted on Instagram, she said: "I hope you're all celebrating. I hope all the women in this country know that there is a real reckoning and a real change. I hope the people who have been oppressed by power ... I hope that you know your voices are heard. I'm just honestly kind of speechless. This is a very special day. It's a day where a lot of people ... have felt like we were living in a state of terror and aggression all the time and it's over. You can feel warm now. I feel like the world just got a big hug from God. Go home and hug your families and hug yourself. May we all stitch ourselves back together after all this. Be safe and be peaceful. There's no need to gloat in anybody's face that Joe won. There's no need to be unkind. This is just a time for healing, this is a time for rest and a time for love. And the people have spoken."

Gaga appeared at a rally to support Biden's campaign, a move which angered his rival Donald Trump.

Addressing the crowd, Trump said: "Now he’s got Lady Gaga. I could tell you plenty of stories - I could tell you stories about Lady Gaga, I know a lot of stories."

Also hitting out at Jon Bon Jovi, Trump added: "Every time I see him he kisses my a**. 'Oh, Mr President.' He'll get something out of it, just like everyone is. By the way, we draw much bigger crowds than these people. They got Beyonce, and they got Jay-Z."
