Days after she vowed to make bullying illegal in remembrance of 14-year-old Jamey Rodemeyer, who killed himself after classmates bullied him for his sexuality, Lady Gaga paid to go to a $35,800 per-couple fundraiser where President Obama would be holding a Q&A, ABC News reported.
The event took place at the home of Facebook's Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg and David Goldberg in Atherton, Calif.
During the Q&A, Gaga first thanked the president for what he has accomplished and for supporting this year's second annual Federal Partners in Bullying Prevention Summit, which took place last week. She then read from a letter about the suicide of her fan who had endured bullying.
She made a plea to everyone, including the president, to do whatever they could to stop bullying. In response, Obama thanked her and highlighted his administration's anti-bullying campaign.
Lady Gaga paid another tribute to Jamey at her concert in Las Vegas Saturday night, where she played the song "Hair" in honor of his life, while a tribute video played on screens above the stage, CNN reported.
