Can you stain a meat dress? I guess we'll find out.
Lady Gaga paid homage to Marilyn Monroe at Bill Clinton’s fundraiser, “A Decade of Difference.” The charity event also celebrated Bill’s 65th birthday. Other performers of the night included Bono, Stevie Wonder, Kenny Chesney and Usher.
Gaga took the stage in a wavy blonde wig, red lipstick and said it was her “first real Marilyn moment.”
“I always wanted to have one, and I was hoping that it didn’t involve pills and a strand of pearls,” Gaga joked. Good one.
She then gave a low-key version of her hit, Born This Way. She sang to President Clinton as his wife, Hilary, and daughter, Chelsea stood next to him, laughing. Gaga responded, “I love you and your hot wife.” She also swapped the title “Bad Romance” for “Bill Romance” and said to Clinton: “I wish you were playing sax with me tonight, baby.”
PERSON SITTING IN FRONT OF BILL: Excuse me, your knee is hitting the back of my seat!
BILL: That ain't my knee, buddy.
After serenading the ex-president, Gaga descended from a giant tree house where she said, “If someone had told me so many years ago that I’d be doing that right in front of you I just would not believe. I would have given a good American ‘f-ck you.’”
She then proceeded to give the president the bird. Some of the audience laughed, but mostly, a general groan fell over the entire crowd. For the first time, Stevie Wonder was grateful he was blind because he didn’t have to watch the train wreck. After Gaga’s performance, Clinton took the stage.
"I am the only person in history who got to be President and then had a post-presidential birthday party attended by both Lady Gaga and the Secretary of State," Clinton joked. "I want to thank Hillary because we met 40 years ago this year. When I met her, she was already doing the kind of work you see here long before it was cool."
Way to call your wife a dork. The “Decade of Difference” fundraiser was for the Clinton Foundation. For the past ten years, the foundation has helped to improve global health, strengthen economies worldwide, promote healthier childhoods and protect the environment.
