Gaga dwarfs Obamas at fundraiser

News

As promised via Twitter, Lady Gaga did meet with President Obama at a fundraiser in California Sunday. The singer showed up with usual fanfare, according to Yahoo News:

She was wearing a floor-length sleeveless lacey black dress, her blonde hair was gathered in a bouffant up-do adorned with a black hair piece with a black veil down the back, which she swept to the side and in front of her left shoulder. (The hair added about 6 inches to her stature). She took a seat at the middle table in the tent and stood up with the other guests when POTUS entered a few minutes later.

"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 last week following the suicide of a 14-year-old boy who claimed to have been bullied for coming out as a bisexual.

Gaga got her message to Obama after all. From ABC News:

According to a source present in the tent fundraiser, Gaga asked a question during the Q&A. She first thanked the president for what he’s accomplished, then read from what she said was a letter from a fan about the suicide of another fan who had been subjected to bullying.

She thanked Obama for hosting his anti-bullying conference with Michelle Obama, and then made a general plea to everyone in the room, including the president, to do what they can to prevent bullying.

Noble cause. But she probably could have done it without the dragon dress.
