Mother Monster is keeping her paws up. Lady Gaga protested outside New York City’s Trump Tower after Donald Trump’s shocking upset in this year’s presidential election.

The “Perfect Illusion” singer, 30 — a vocal supporter of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton’s bid for the Oval Office — took to Trump’s landmark building in the wee hours of Wednesday morning, November 9, to let spectators know that she still stands with the former secretary of state. Clad in a black pantsuit with an American flag tied to her waist, Gaga stood outside Trump Tower holding a sign that read, “Love trumps hate.”

Earlier in the night, the pop superstar attended Clinton’s election rally at NYC’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center — just blocks away from Trump Tower and from the Hilton hotel where Trump, 70, and his supporters celebrated his stunning victory.

As the ex–Celebrity Apprentice host’s number of electoral votes surpassed Clinton’s and it became clear that he would win the presidency, Gaga shared a message of hope via Twitter.

"In a room full of hope, we will be heard,” the Grammy winner wrote. “Stand up for kindness, equality, and love. Nothing will stop us. Say a prayer America."

Gaga became increasingly more involved in Clinton’s campaign as the election drew near. She attended a Monday, November 7, rally in North Carolina — a swing state that Trump ended up winning — where she made glowing remarks about the politician’s then-potential role as commander in chief.

"She has a career in politics that spans decades of experience, education, leadership and wisdom. She's ready to be president," the musician told the crowd. "She kept going and she kept fighting for women's rights. She kept fighting for the care of our children. She kept fighting for those that are in need."
