Lady Gaga’s inaugural escort reveals the joke the singer made about her dress: “We have an equal chance of tripping over it.”
Navy Captain Evan Campbell has revealed that Lady Gaga was afraid of tripping over her dress during her appearance at Joe Biden’s inauguration on January 20th.
The 30-year-old spoke to Task & Purpose about his experience during the event and explained why he was chosen to accompany the 34-year-old singer.
Campbell noted that before the event began, many organizers were concerned about the length of her flowing red Schiaparelli dress.

“There were concerns – apparently she was wearing this very nice, very large dress and there were concerns that she might need help climbing the stairs,” he explained.
The rest of her outfit consisted of a fitted dark blue cashmere jacket and a gold, dove-shaped brooch.
The combat veteran then recalled being chosen to escort the hitmaker because of his large scope.
Campbell noted that the organizers “were basically looking around and I was one of the bigger, bigger people and they just asked if I would be willing to help.”
Concern: Due to the length of her flowing red Schiaparelli dress, organizers felt that the singer “would need help getting down the stairs.”

Before the singer took the stage to sing the United States’ national anthem, the Navy noticed she was having a fit of stage fright.
The captain then assured her that she would be fine and gave her words of encouragement.
He explained, “It just seemed like a very natural human thing to look over and say,” Hey, you’re going to do great. You always do well, you know you’re a performer, you will do it great. “‘
“It just seemed like she needed to hear a relaxed voice,” added the captain.
Campbell also expressed that he was happy to give his fellow Marines a positive image.

He noted, “Millions of people have now seen a United States Marine with Lady Gaga, so I’m just glad I made the Marine Corps proud of this one.”
In a separate interview with the Marine Corps Times, Campbell also shared that the singer made a humorous comment about her dress just before they went on stage together.
He told the publication, “She looked at me and she’s like,” a fair warning … we have an equal chance of stumbling over it. “
The President’s inauguration was watched by nearly 40 million people, and over 21 million watched Celebrating America’s subsequent television special.
