“Mother Monster” Lady Gaga attended a $35,800-per-couple fundraiser for President Barack Obama in northern California over the weekend. The 25-year-old Grammy winner didn’t sing, but she reportedly asked Obama a question during the Q&A, thanked him for all he’s done for the country, and read a letter about her late fan Jamey Rodemeyer.
“[Lady Gaga] 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,” a source told ABC.
Obama reportedly talked about “his administration’s anti-bullying campaign, and then more generally about the importance of values and who we are as Americans.”
Though ABC reports that the performance artist spoke with Obama for two whole minutes, the White House press pool report from the event states that it’s unclear whether the pop sensation and politician met up with each other.
“POTUS spoke for about 8 minutes, with Lady Gaga sitting front and center,” reads the report. “And although he never acknowledged her obvious presence, it seems likely the two crossed paths during greetings inside the house before the dinner.”
