PRESIDENT OBAMA “INTIMIDATED” BY LADY GAGA
Barack Obama may be the leader of the free world, but even he gets a little intimidated when meeting Lady Gaga. The President of the United States admitted as much this past weekend, when, during his address at the annual Human Rights Campaign gala in Washington, D.C., he joked that meeting Lady Gaga was “intimidating.” According to ABC News, Obama said, “She was wearing 16-inch heels. She was 8 feet tall. It was a little intimidating.” Gaga and Obama met late last month at a Silicon Valley fundraiser held at the home of Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg. Gaga used the opportunity to make good on a Twitter vow she’d posted in reaction to the suicide of bullied teen Jamey Rodemeyer, asking the president what his administration planned on doing to stop bullying. At the Human Rights gala, Obama joked with the crowd, which included gay and lesbian advocates, saying, “I held some productive bilateral talks with your leader.” The remark reportedly drew laughter and applause.
CONRAD MURRAY TRAIL UPDATE:
On Wednesday, the jury at the involuntary manslaughter trial of Michael Jackson’s personal physician Conrad Murray heard first hand from the former pop star. In one of the most anticipated days of the trial, personal conversations between Murray and Jackson, recorded on Murray’s phone, were played for the court. In the recording, Jackson talks to Murray about his grand plans for the This Is It shows, including raising enough money to start the Michael Jackson Children’s Hospital. He said in the recordings, “I love them because I didn’t have a childhood. I had no childhood. I feel their pain. I feel their hurt.” When Jackson goes silent for 13 seconds, Murray asks, “Are you OK?” Jackson’s response: “I am asleep.” Murray has pleaded not guilty to the charge of involuntary manslaughter.
