Election 2012: Barack Obama Wins Second Term, Lady Gaga & Justin Bieber React
Barack Obama won a second term as President of the United States Of America on Tuesday night (November 6), causing many artists to turn to — where else? — Twitter and Facebook to type out their elation. Over the past couple days, we rounded up messages from pop stars, ranging from Pink and Alicia Keys to Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj, who urged their fans to get out and vote.
And speaking of Gaga, she posted the following message on Facebook after the election: “I JUST GOT OFF STAGE IN COLUMBIA!! CONGRATULATIONS MR. PRESIDENT Barack Obama We are so proud to be American tonight! YES!!! YES! YES!! we just couldn’t be happier my goodness, the joy when freedom prevails.”
Head below for more reactions from musicians.
Tonight is a good night for women. Proud to be a WOMAN IN AMERICA!!! ❤
