Celebrities Such as Lizzo, Ariana Grande, and Beyoncé React to Results of the Presidential Election
Many celebrities weren’t shy about their endorsement of former Vice President Joe Biden- see their reactions to his and Kamala Harris’s victory below.
From performances at rallies by Lady Gaga and John Legend to social media posts by stars like Beyoncé and Ariana Grande, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris certainly had celebrity support behind their campaign. Once Biden won Pennsylvania and received the needed 270 Electoral College votes to become President, the Internet began to celebrate his and Kamala Harris’s projected victory. Harris will not only be the first female Vice President, but also the first non-white person to hold the position.
Singer Lizzo shared an emotional video message on her Instagram, in which she tearfully discusses that the results of the election have caused her to feel “hopeful.”
“I think this is the end of a four-year term that felt like a thousand years,” she said. “Whether you were blue or were red, that man didn’t care about you. It’s time to hold the people in charge accountable. It’s time for them to listen. And it’s time for actual change in our policies and practices.”
Lady Gaga has been an outspoken Joe Biden supporter, performing at a rally in Pennsylvania; she also wrote and sang a jingle on social media encouraging people to vote.

Today is a monumental day. No matter what side you are on, let’s take a moment to recognize how far women have come in this country. Thinking about all those who shattered glass ceilings and paved the way for a woman to * finally * be Vice President of the United States makes me so emotional. Sojourner Truth. Harriet Tubman. Shirley Chisholm. Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Kamala Harris. I salute them all. And to the young girls of our nation… DREAM BIG. Anything is possible. 🇺🇸
Many celebrities took to Twitter to express their joy at Biden’s victory- and Trump’s loss, including Ariana Grande.
Miley Cyrus took a humorous approach to the news using her hit song, “Party in the USA.”
The Office alum Mindy Kaling’s Tweet went viral for describing how many African American and minority voters were feeling about the results.
