Oops! Lady Gaga Mistook a Chicago Mariachi Festival For a Pride Parade

When the pride parade was going on in Chicago, Lady Gaga had the best seat in the house - or so she thought.

The pop star shared a photo of herself on her balcony overlooking a parade with the caption, "Watching over Chicago Pride from my apartment and smiling so big. So many happy people. Happy pride! #lovewins."

She also shared a second, almost identical photo, with another touching caption, writing, "This is just about the coolest things I ever saw. It feels good to know how many of my friends and loved ones are out celebrating and feeling valued.#lovewins."

Awesome, right? Totally...except for the fact that the pride parade was a few miles away. What she was REALLY watching was the Chicago Mariachi and Folklórico Festival.

You know what, though? We're not mad at her. Gaga has been a very outspoken advocate for gay rights for years, so it's not like she was bandwagoning. She just got her festivals mixed up, that's all. She was still celebrating Pride, and the comments she made are still just as beautiful and important.

As for the mariachi festival-goers, they heard about the little snafu and made this little mock-up for Mother Monster so that she could celebrate with them, too.

Well played, Mariachi Heritage Foundation, well played!
