Pop singer Lady Gaga attended a fundraiser with President Obama in Atherton, Calif., Sunday night. And despite the distinguished company, she didn't tone her attention-seeking image down one bit.
According to the White House pool report filed by Carol Lee of The Wall Street Journal, Gaga's hairdo and heels made her at least eight feet tall:
At 8pm pool was brought through the house, where Poker Face by Lady Gaga was playing, and into a white party tent set up in the back of the house. There were 7 large round tables - three on each side and one square in the middle in front of a small open space with an American and California state flag set up, where President Obama spoke.
At 8:03 pm Lady Gaga entered... delicately walking on sky-high heels (she towered over everyone, a good 2 feet taller than POTUS). She was wearing a floor-length sleeveless lacey black dress, her blonde hair was gathered in a bouffant up-do adorned with a black hair piece with a black veil down the back, which she swept to the side and in front of her left shoulder. (The hair added about 6 inches to her stature). She took a seat at the middle table in the tent and stood up with the other guests when POTUS entered a few minutes later.
Event was print pool only so no press photos.
POTUS spoke for about 8 minutes, with Lady Gaga sitting front and center. And although he never acknowledged her obvious presence, it seems likely the two crossed paths during greetings inside the house before the dinner.
