Will Obama Meet Lady Gaga on Bullying?

Fierce gay advocate Lady Gaga was so upset with the news about the suicide of 14 year old LGBTQ teen Jamey Rodemeyer that she has called for Obama to pass laws making bullying a hate crime. According to MTV Rodemeyer had posted in May an "It Gets Better" video about his long struggle with bullying at school. He ended his life last Sunday after years of taunting over his sexual orientation. Rodemeyer mentioned Gaga in his video saying, "She makes me so happy. She lets me know that I was born this way. And that's my advice to you from her: You were born this way. All you have to do is hold your head up & you'll go far." Gaga tweeted that she's so upset that she is planning to meet with Obama on the matter. Hopefully he'll take a meeting with her.

I am meeting with our President. I will not stop fighting. This must end. Our generation has the power to end it. The past days I’ve spent reflecting, crying and yelling. I have so much anger. It is hard to feel love when cruelty takes someone’s life. Bullying must become be illegal. It is a hate crime.
