Lady Gaga writes song about Trayvon Martin

Lady Gaga, who grew up in NY, chose to perform at The Bitter End, a bar where she used to perform before she hits success.

In an interview with Beats 1, Lady Gaga explains how the political climate has influenced her art and inspired her new song in tribute to Trayvon Martin titled, "Angel Down".

Lady Gaga gave another out-of-the-box after-performance on Thursday night at The Bitter End bar in NY for the promotion of her latest album, "Joanne".

Gaga co-wrote and produced every song, majority with Mark Ronson, who also plays guitar, bass or keyboards on numerous tracks.

"My mother's from West Virginia and I grew up listening to country music with her", she told Michael Strahan on Good Morning America this Friday (Oct. 21, 2016). The article says the fifth album is Lady Gaga's "complete public-image makeover".

On Thursday, October 20, Lady Gaga's Bud Light X Dive Bar Tour invaded NY with special guest, Mark Ronson, playing the guitar. The restaurant and the album are both named after her paternal aunt Joanne who died at the age of 19 from lupus.

The detail adds an entirely new personal dimension to Lady Gaga's survivor's anthem "Til It Happens to You", written for the campus sexual assault documentary The Hunting Ground. Watch the full New York City Dive Bar Tour set in the video below.

The event was streamed live on her Facebook page.

With Gaga's fan base, known as Little Monsters, forced to wait three years to hear fresh music from the pop star, it is no surprise that Joanne topped the charts in at least 18 countries within hours of release.

The "Perfect Illusion" hitmaker continued, highlighting how fame has affected her everyday life: "If I go out, if I go to the store I can't have a normal conversation with someone, they don't ask me normal questions or want to know about you or your emotions".

She kicked off the Dive Bar Tour performance with the first two tracks from the album: "Diamond Heart", which she wrote about go-go dancing as a teen, and "A-YO". Still, her faithful waited on for more than an hour until she arrived. "John Wayne" features an anthem-sound that makes it ideal for Gaga's upcoming Super Bowl performance.
