Her concerts, costumes and dance moves are so risque that she was banned from performing in Jakarta last year, but someone at the RNC apparently thought Lady Gaga would’ve been a good fit to perform at the Republican National Convention last summer in Tampa, Fla., alongside musical acts such as Journey and Lynyrd Skynyrd.
