Lady Gaga Has “Nothing to Say” During Awkward BBC TV interview over Donald Trump

The singer was reluctant to talk about US politics, and refused to be pushed on Donald Trump

Lady Gaga was her usual cheery self this morning on BBC Breakfast, taking part in one of the most awkward interviews the channel has ever seen.

Gaga, 30, was being quizzed by reporter Charlie Stayt on BBC Breakfast about the political situation in the US, but she wasn’t keen to speak about it.

When asked for her thoughts on controversial US presidential candidate Donald Trump, a nonplussed Lady Gaga – who’s promoting her new album Joanne – said she had “nothing to say”.

The most awkward interview ever?

“I have nothing to say of him,” she icily replied.

But Stayt remained insistent with his line of questioning, saying to her: “He claims he represents people who have been unrepresented, who haven’t had a voice.”

Gaga is definitely not happy

To which she replied, in a not at all obtuse manner: “I think what is most important is for us to try to decipher now what is real and what is not. And what is honest and what is dishonest and be accepting of those things and not operating from fear.”

Undeterred, Stayt remained firm, asking: “I’m intrigued you literally won’t say anything about him, you have endorsed Hilary Clinton – what is it you think she’s going to do for the USA that he will not?”

Absolute legend and consummate professional Charlie Stayt
After an intense ten-second silence which was painful to watch, Gaga finally relented and said something of note.

“I think she will do a good job. Some people want to win [pauses] races. Other people want to be president of the united states and change people’s lives. It’s about the intention.”

Viewers were quick to praise Stayt for keeping his cool, with one tweeting: “Great demonstration of #interviewing skills by Charlie.” Indeed.
