It was intimidating. For Barack.
When Lady Gaga came face to face with President Obama at a fundraising event held by the Human Rights Campaign, gay advocacy organization, in San Francisco on September 25, there were no photos allowed at the private event.
Too bad, because one would've been worth a thousand words.
“She was wearing 16-inch heels,” Obama told reporters after the run-in with the pop superstar. “She was eight feet tall. It was a little intimidating.”
The press pool said that she added a black veil and a bouffant hairstyle to complete the look, but no one was able to see the evidence until this rare photo surfaced.
You can thank jewelry designer Rodrigo Otazu, who was there for the origin of Lady Gaga's meat dress, and who crafted her diamond teeth, for the image above.
"When she went to see President Obama, she wore one of my necklaces and earrings. She looked like the character from 'Breakfast at Tiffany's,'" says Otazu.
Gaga showed up at the $35,800 fundraiser to lobby for anti-bullying policies and enforcement, an issue she cares deeply about. Especially given recent events.
The next day, she honored late fan Jamey Rodemeyer in concert.
