Lady Gaga to Headline Inaugural Ball for Obama Staffers
The pop icon will perform at a private celebration for members of the president's campaign staff.
Obama campaign loyalists will have reason to go gaga next week – and not just because their candidate will be getting sworn into office.
Lady Gaga will headline a private event for members of President Barack Obama’s campaign staff Tuesday, an inaugural source tells The Hollywood Reporter.
The private ball for campaign staffers was reportedly headlined by Jay-Z in 2009, during which the rapper is said to have sung "99 Problems but George Bush Ain't One."
A number of music stars are lined up to perform during activities related to Obama’s inauguration Monday, including Kelly Clarkson, Beyonce, Katy Perry, Stevie Wonder, Alicia Keys, Usher, fun. and Cyndi Lauper.
Among the week’s events include the “Service Summit,” which will feature addresses by inaugural committee co-chair Eva Longoria, Chelsea Clinton, singer-songwriter Ben Folds, Star Jones, Angela Bassett and gospel singer Yolanda Adams.
Other Hollywood fixtures slated to attend festivities include campaign backers Harvey Weinstein, Oscar-nominated actress Viola Davis and producer and campaign booster Colleen Bell.
Gaga is on tour and plays at Los Angeles' Staples Center Sunday and Monday.
