Obama: Meeting Lady Gaga was ‘intimidating’

October 2, 2011
A known anti-bullying spokesperson and gay rights activist, Lady Gaga showed up to Obama’s $35,800-per couple fundraiser to lobby for anti-bullying policies and enforcement. Earlier this month, she tweeted her devastation over the suicide of a gay Buffalo teen who ended his life in the aftermath of relentless school bullying. According to a White House pool report, the New Yorker donned “sky-high heels (she towered over everyone, a good 2 feet taller than POTUS) … [and] a floor-length sleeveless lacy black dress.” “She was wearing 16-inch heels,” Obama said of Lady Gaga’s style choice for the presidential gathering.

Obama seemed puzzled and uneasy by Lady Gaga’s outfit for last week’s fundraiser. “She was eight feet tall. It was a little intimidating.” The pool report added that the “Monster” singer sported a bouffant hair up-do “with a black veil down the back.” Even Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, famous for shamelessly conducting business in hoodies and other casual attire, dressed up and wore a tie to meet the president.
