Time to put on a poker face. Lady Gaga had a run-in with the police Friday, July 15, just two weeks after she got her driver’s license.

The “Bad Romance” singer, 30, was spotted getting pulled over by a cop while driving on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, in her red Ford F-150 SVT Lightning truck.

Gaga took to Twitter early Sunday morning to address the incident. “Ya I got pulled over. Big deal!” she wrote. “I just haven’t received plates yet for my new pick up! ¯_(ツ)_/¯”

According to the California DMV, drivers receive temporary permits when they purchase new or used vehicles until they get their license plates in the mail, which could take weeks. Gaga didn’t specify whether she was fined, but drivers are typically free to go as long as they provide proof of ownership to the police officer who pulled them over.

The American Horror Story: Hotel actress, who is engaged to Chicago Fire actor Taylor Kinney, celebrated obtaining her driver’s license at age 30 with a series of hilarious Instagram shots over the July 4 holiday weekend.

“Thelma and Puhleaaaze,” she captioned a July 1 selfie of herself behind the wheel with one of her pals. “(And yes I FINALLY got my license after years of driving with an adult present and a learners permit) IM FREE Rollin w the homies.”

And after I passed my driving test. PRAISE HIM ?? ?
