Lady Gaga to Perform at Private Event at Obama Inaugural Ball
Lady Gaga is getting in on the inaugural fun. What, you didn’t think she’d let all of her peers celebrate the swearing in of the president without her, did you? The Mother Monster will reportedly perform at President Barack Obama’s second inauguration at a private staff ball on Tuesday, Jan. 22.
A source told The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity that Gaga will entertain White House staffers at the private event. Jay-Z performed at this same event at Obama’s first inaugural ceremonies.
With Kelly Clarkson, Katy Perry and more on tap to the perform at the inauguration tomorrow, it’s likely we won’t see any YouTube clips of Gaga’s perf since she is playing a private event. Foiled!
Lady Gaga and Obama have had quite an interesting relationship and have sparked dialogues, at least in the press. He said he was intimidated by her, and she had pledged to discuss anti-bullying initiatives with him whenever the opportunity would present itself.
These two – so connected in so many ways. Now Gaga will do her part and entertain his staff.
