Lady Gaga met with Obama administration staffers at the White House yesterday to discuss bullying prevention, and it sounds like she made quite an impression on the President's staff!
Obama senior advisor Valerie Jarrett praised the pop star as â€œa source of strength for many young people who feel isolated and scared at their schools.â€ Jarrett added on the official White House blog, â€œLady Gaga has described this cause as a personal one â€” she has said that as a child, she was often picked on for being different. I am deeply moved by the way she has used her story, and her success, to inspire young people, and shine the spotlight on important issues.â€
The White House held an anti-bullying conference several months ago, and Jarrett said the administration is looking forward to supporting Gagaâ€™s Born This Way Foundation in an effort to explore how to change the culture and policies around children in school.
While Gaga didn't get to meet with President Barack Obama (he was traveling in Kansas for a speech on the economy), the two met earlier this year when she attended a fundraiser for his re-election campaign in California.
Good for Gaga!
