The 'Marry the Night' singer goes to the official resident of the U.S. President 'to talk about the important issue of bullying' in honor of her fallen little monster Jamey Rodemeyer.
A few months after one of her little monsters Jamey Rodemeyer committed suicide due to years of bullying, came to the White House "to talk about the important issue of bullying." The Mother Monster couldn't meet President Barack Obama during the Tuesday, December 6 meeting because he was in Kansas at that moment.

Instead, GaGa discussed the matter with the presidential adviser Valerie Jarrett and staff members from the Office of Public Engagement. "[She's] a source of strength for many young people who feel isolated and scared at their schools," Jarrett wrote in a blog post on the White House website. "Lady Gaga has described this cause as a personal one-she has said that as a child, she was often picked on for being different."

Jarrett added, "I am deeply moved by the way she has used her story, and her success, to inspire young people, and shine the spotlight on important issues." She went on, "The administration looked forward to supporting Gaga's Born This Way Foundation, to explore how to change the culture and policies around children in school."
