Lady Gaga didn’t dance around the issue of bullying when she met face to face with President Obama.
Gaga was among the guests at an Obama fundraiser hosted by a couple of Facebook executives who charged $38,500 a couple. She arrived reportedly wore a black dress scalloped high plunge back and high heels. Her blond hair was upswept, with black flowers and black veil sweeping down back of hair.
Gaga had one mission…help stop “bullying” which recently made headlines with the death of 14-year-old Jamey Rodemeyer who took his own life after years of bullying.
Gaga tweeted her gameplan to her fans before the big event:
“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.”
According to a source at the 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.
Obama thanked her, spoke about his administration’s anti-bullying campaign, and then more generally about the importance of values and who we are as Americans.
Gaga is pushing to make bullying illegal and calls it ” a hate crime”. Rodemeyer took his life on September 18. In his final Twitter message he referenced Lady Gaga, writing “thank you for all you have done.”
