Lady Gaga Tones Down Appearance to Meet President Obama

The President later says the singer's 16-inch heels were "a little intimidating."

Lady Gaga is hardly known for her reverent apparel, so when she met President Obama at one of his California fundraisers, she was actually rather subdued – for her: she wore a black dress with a plunge back, very high heels, and her hair in an up do with black flowers and a black veil sweeping down her hair.

The meeting was all of a few minutes, but Gaga blasted this to the tweetasphere:
“I am meeting with our President. I will not stop fighting. This must end. Our generation has the power to end it.”

This referred to the youth bullying issue that lead to the suicide of Jamey Rodemeyer, a 14 year old Gaga fan, who was picked on for being gay.

Meanwhile, President Obama did not find her outfit demure. "She was wearing 16-inch heels," he said in a recent address. "She was eight feet tall. It was a little intimidating."

No wonder Gaga wears those crazy shoes.

Meanwhile, the above photo was Gaga’s not demure look coming out of a London hotel room this week – which proves that with the President, she was, in fact, trying to play it down.
