It references the death of George Floyd...

Lady Gaga has shared a beautiful Class Of 2020 address.

The pop icon spoke online as part of the virtual YouTube project, intended to reflect the "shared experience" of the Class Of 2020.

Her talk focussed on COVID-19, and the chaos that has ensured, creating enormous shifts in our daily lives.

Prefacing this, she added an introduction that directly addressed the death of George Floyd.

She said: “My speech was recorded before the murder of George Floyd and the subsequent activist movement…while my original commencement speech may not be directly relevant to what this country most needs right now, I wish to tell you today that though there is much to be sad about, there is also much to be celebrated.”

“You are watching what is a pivotal moment in this (country’s) evolution…change will happen and it will be for the better.”
