After his first meeting ever with the Mother Monster herself last week, President Obama said Lady Gaga is intimidating during a speech at a LGBT advocacy gala.
During a speech at the annual Human Rights Campaign gala in Washington D.C. on Saturday, Obama recalled his meeting with a wildly-dressed Lady Gaga the week prior at a fundraiser.
I appreciate the chance to join you tonight. I also took a trip out to California last week, where I held some productive bilateral talks with your leader, Lady Gaga, Obama said to a crowd of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) attendees, who erupted in applause.
She was wearing 16-inch heels, Obama told the attendees of the gala, about Gaga who stood more than two feet taller than the six-foot-one President. She was eight feet tall. It was a little intimidating.
Gaga attended a $35,800 per couple fundraiser dinner last weekend to speak with Obama about increasing efforts for ant-bullying enforcement.
According to a White House pool report, Lady Gaga showed up at the home of Sheryl Sandberg, the COO of Facebook, wearing a floor-length sleeveless lacy black dress, with her hair in a bouffant...with a black hair piece with a black veil down the back and sky-high heels, Reuters reported.
Lady Gaga attended the dinner with plans to personally meet with the President about his anti-bullying campaign efforts, inspired by the suicide of 14-year-old victim of bullying, Jamey Rodemeyer.
I am meeting with our President. I will not stop fighting. This must end. Our generation has the power to end it. Trend it #MakeALawForJamey, Gaga tweeted Sept. 21.
While no details about their meeting have emerged, Obama confirmed his conversation with Lady Gaga at the fundraiser, where she pressed the President during the question and answer section about his anti-bullying advocacy plans.
According to Fox News, President Obama kept his speech at the Human Rights Campaign dinner on Saturday night short after he declared, Cyndi Lauper is in the house. I can't compete with that.
