Obama adviser meets Gaga re new project

Valerie Jarrett, a senior adviser to President Obama, met Tuesday, December 6, with pop icon Lady Gaga to discuss Gaga’s new Born This Way Foundation.

The Foundation, named after one of her recent hits, “Born This Way,” is a project Gaga will launch next year, with the help of some heavy hitters – the MacArthur Foundation, the California Endowment, and the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University. The project plans to use digital mobilization to help combat bullying and to help young people develop self-confidence and a sense of well-being.

In a posting on the White House Blog, Jarrett said she and Gaga “discussed ways we could work together to make sure that no child comes under attack, regardless of his or her race, sexual orientation, gender identity, or any other factor.”

    Brilliant! Clearly the Obama Admin is recruiting Gaga into their camp. That will surely bring back many of the young progressives who have fallen away. BRILLIANT!
