Playing Lady Gaga Accused of Dressing Like a Nazi at Hillary Clinton Rally After Wearing Michael Jackson-Inspired Outfit

Lady Gaga's fashion statement for Hillary Clinton's final rally in Morrisville, North Carolina, gave some people the wrong impression.

Upon hitting the stage on Monday night in a military-style jacket, the 30-year-old pop star's look was likened to that of a Nazi uniform on social media.

"Lady Gaga, dressed as some sort of futuristic Nazi, is speaking at a Clinton rally as the first votes are cast," one Twitter user wrote, while another asked, "How does no one in the Clinton campaign stop Lady Gaga from wearing a Nazi looking outfit??"

However, Gaga's look was actually somewhat of a tribute to the late Michael Jackson, who wore the same jacket during his 1990 visit to the White House when George H.W. Bush was president.

In 2012, the "Perfect Illusion" singer bought 55 items owned by the King of Pop at an auction, including the jacket he wore on his Bad tour, which cost her a reported $240,000. "The 55 pieces I collected today will be archived and expertly cared for in the spirit and love of Michael Jackson, his bravery, & fans worldwide," Gaga tweeted at the time. She has not confirmed if the jacket worn to the Clinton rally was in fact the one owned by Jackson.

One thing is for certain, Gaga was pretty pumped for election day. "WAKE UP MONSTER 18+ go out and #vote #mygirl #imwithher #my #vote #govote 🇺🇸," she posted to Instagram on Tuesday. "Got my voting shades on! We're ready to take on the polls!"

Gaga -- a Clinton supporter -- even made things a tad awkward when asked about Donald Trump during a recent interview. "I have nothing to say of him," she said while on BBC's Breakfast. "I think what's important is for us to decipher what is honest and what is dishonest, and be accepting of those things and not operating from fear."
