Lady Gaga to White House to talk bullying
Lady Gaga is visiting the White House Tuesday to meet with officials in the office of public engagement "to talk about the important issue of bullying," a senior White House official tells CBS News.
The flamboyant singer will not have a chance to discuss the issue with the president, who will be speaking in Kansas this afternoon.
The president and the performer did cross paths at a California fundraiser earlier this year, where Lady Gaga thanked Mr. Obama for hosting an anti-bullying conference.
The White House, whose "stop bullying" website specifically spotlights cyberbullying and LGBT bullying, is expected to reveal more about Lady Gaga's visit later today.
