Lady Gaga Honors, Sort of Embarrasses Bill Clinton in Concert

by at . Comments

It's hard to blame former President Bill Clinton for being a little on edge about Lady Gaga's performance honoring his foundation's 10th anniversary Saturday.

He shared his panic with a packed Hollywood Bowl, telling the audience: "I wondered, you know ... she always kind of goes up to the edge. I thought, 'my God, I get Lady Gaga and I will have a heart attack celebrating my 65th birthday.'"

Fortunately, Bubba lived to tell the tale:

Gaga routinely switched up her lyrics to include the Clintons and at one point, she danced on the catwalk suggestively in front of the former first family.

She declared "I love you and your hot wife" at the end of "Bad Romance," and then, during a version of "You and I," Gaga again addressed Bill directly.

Raising her middle finger, the 25-year-old singer declared, "If someone had told me many years ago that I'd be doing that right in front of you I just would not believe it. I would have given a good American f**k you."

Alright then. A few awkward moments aside, Bill was thrilled.

"How cool is it to be 65 and you get Lady Gaga, come on?" he gushed later. "I am the only person in history who got to be president and who then had a post-presidential party attended both by Lady Gaga and the Secretary of State."

Watch the rest of her performance in its entirety below:

For those keeping score, Gaga and her antics have now made two U.S. Presidents noticeably uncomfortable this year (the other being President Obama).

Watch out, W. and H.W. You Bushes are next.
