Bill and Hillary Clinton seem like the kind of couple who listen exclusively to jazz. I picture Bill smiling away as the sax hits a high note and Hillary just sort of dealing with it, her face a blank, expressionless void. But maybe that’s just me, and apparently I am wrong. Billary are big Gaga fans. The couple, along with Chelsea, were beaming last night when the Mother Monster took the stage for the former President’s belated b-day bash “A Decade of Difference: A Concert Celebrating 10 Years of the William J. Clinton Foundation” in LA, despite some sexy strutting and the F-bomb.
Gaga sang “Bad Romance,” or ‘Bill Romance,” saying “I love you and your hot wife,” while dancing in front of them. Dressed in a blond wig and a nude body suit made of what looked like fabric scraps, she had her version of a “Marilyn Moment.”
“I always wanted to have one, and I was hoping that it didn’t involve pills and a strand of pearls.”
It didn’t. But with a ton of dancing and her short film for Mugler playing on the big screens, “Happy Birthday Mr. President,” this was not.
Gaga also sang “You and I” warning before her performance she wasn’t going to take her clothes off, “don’t worry.” She also raised her middle finger and told the President, “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**k you.” Shocking? Not really, this is Lady Gaga.
The song was full of lines for the Clintons, like “Somewhere, something about this place, somewhere about [sic] American eyes when a Clinton makes us all feel safe. Somewhere something about a cool, Arkansas guy, yes, something about — Hilary, Billary, that’s your new celebrity name — to the Clintons, you and I.”
Kenny Chesney, Bono, Stevie Wonder, and Usher also performed, but of course no one is talking about it. Even these super stars can’t upstage Gaga.
