Lady Gaga speaks about bullying at President Obama fundraiser
Gaga thanked the president and then read from a letter from a fan about the suicide of another fan who had been the target of bullying. Gaga then made a general plea to everyone to do what they can to prevent bullying.
Prior to the dinner, Lady Gaga reportedly spoke privately with President Obama for a couple of minutes, which is just what Gaga had promised to do in the wake in of the suicide of 14-year-old Jamey Rodemeyer last week.
"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," tweeted Gaga.
Earlier this weekend, Gaga also performed at the iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas where she dedicated her performance of "Hair" to Rodemeyer.
