Popular singer Lady Gaga seems to have become a gossip topic when talking about the US election.
The 34-year-old singer is set to join Joe Biden and Kamala Haris at a rally in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on Monday.
President Donald Trump’s communications director Tim Murtaugh described her as an anti-fracking activist in a tweet.
“Nothing exposes Biden’s disdain for the forgotten working men & women of PA like campaigning with anti-fracking activist Lady Gaga,” he wrote.
“This desperate effort to drum up enthusiasm is actually a sharp stick in the eye for 600,000 Pennsylvanians who work in the fracking industry,” he added.
The statement on Lady Gaga’s upcoming appearance with Joe Biden connects to an October 2012 post on Lady Gaga’s official Facebook page, which posts without comment a link to the website Artists Against Fracking. Mr. Trump also tweeted his outrage.
Lady Gaga responded, glad “to be living rent-free” in their heads and asked, “also, what is fracking?”
According to BBC, Fracking is the process of drilling into the earth to release natural gas and oil. The Trump campaign has identified it as a critical election issue in the battleground state of Pennsylvania.
The Biden campaign said that it does not aim to ban fracking but it would end fracking leases on federal land.
Lady Gaga also included in her post, “Keep your jobs PA!”
