Lady Gaga posted an Instagram message Sunday to show her support for the Chicago Pride Parade. But instead of capturing the parade in her selfie shot, the performer depicted a gathering of people celebrating the city’s Mariachi and Folklorico Festival. However, the singer assured fans she had not mistaken the former for the latter.
As E News reported, the “Born This Way” singer took to Twitter Monday telling fans she had not conflated the two events:
@TIME I am proud in general and did not mistake anything I spent the entire day riding around the city seeing people celebrate.

Lady Gaga shared a selfie on Instagram Sunday that shows her shirtless with the words “Gay Pride” written across her chest and stomach. The photograph was taken on a high-rise building balcony overlooking a huge gathering of people on the ground. She wrote: “Watching over Chicago Pride from my apartment and smiling so big. So many happy people. Happy pride!”
Unfortunately, the group of people shown in Lady Gaga’s photo were in fact attending the Chicago Mariachi and Folklorico Festival, People reported. The event was held at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion at Millennium Park, while the Chicago Pride Parade took over the city’s Uptown and Lakeview neighborhoods Sunday. The Mariachi Heritage Foundation noticed the singer’s post and shared it through its Facebook page.
Regardless of whether Lady Gaga experienced a setting snafu, the star was proud to support gay rights. She mingled with some of her fans in Chicago and showed a more natural side of herself. She even revealed her makeup-free face, still looking beautiful while posing with fans, accoring to the Mirror in the U.K. Gaga uploaded a snapshot on Instagram, captioning it: “ladygaga#chicagopride Pawsup kickin in with lil monsters. Love you so much u beautiful kids. Keep being revolutionaries you're the s---!”
Lady Gaga was one of the celebrities who voiced their support on social media after the U.S. Supreme Court decision last week that legalized same-sex marriage in all 50 states. She shared her message on Instagram Friday, writing she was privileged to have witnessed this momentous event. The star ended her post, “lovewins over prejudice.”
