They don’t call her the Mother Monster for nothing. Lady Gaga was a maternal beast at Sunday night’s American Music Awards. The “Joanne” singer not only performed “A Million Reasons” from her new album, she also gave pop stars from Selena Gomez to Ariana Grande a million reasons to seek her out for a hug.
Selena might’ve gotten the most love from Gaga. Aside from showing up in a photo on Gaga’s Instagram account, Selena also inspired an emotional–and very gif-friendly–reaction from Gaga with her acceptance speech for “Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist.” Ariana also got some love from Gaga in the crowd after her win for “Artist of the Year.”
Even Halsey had a chance to meet Gaga, but Gaga had time for more than just her fellow musicians. She tweeted a shoutout to Gigi Hadid, the evening’s host, and her boyfriend, Zayn Malik, to congratulate them on a big night. She also posed for a pic with Karlie Kloss, who she sat next to at the ceremony.
See all the love Gaga was circulating on social media and check out her performance below.
