Lady Gaga Meets President Obama!
The little monsters’ leader met the President of the USA on Sunday!
Lady Gaga attended a political fundraiser for President Barack Obama in Silicon Valley, Calif. According to CNN, the $35,800-a-person event for about 70 people was hosted in the yard of Facebook’s COO, Cheryl Sandberg.
On Wednesday, the 25-year-old pop star (real name: Stefani Germanotta) told her fans via Twitter she’s spent the past [few] days “reflecting, crying and yelling.” Her outrage, she explained, was over the suicide of 14-year-old Jamey Rodemeyer, who took his own life because of bullying.
The teen, who took his life on Sept. 18, wrote in his final tweet: “Bye Mother Monster. Thank you for all you have done. Paws up forever.”
“I have so much anger,” Gaga said. “Bullying must become illegal. It is a hate crime. I am meeting with our president. This must end. Our generation has the power to end it.”
According to ABC News sources, Gaga asked Obama, 50, a question during the Q&A. She reportedly thanked him for what he’s accomplished and hosting his anti-bullying conference with Michelle Obama earlier this year. A source told the site the “You and I” singer then pleaded to “everyone in the room, including the president, to do what they can to prevent bullying.”
