Lady Gaga Serenades Bill Clinton at ‘A Decade of Difference’ Concert
When Lady Gaga performs, she always makes sure to have a few tricks up her sleeve. During Gaga’s performance at Bill Clinton’s ‘Decade of Difference’ concert, which was also a 65th birthday celebration for Clinton, she got her Marilyn Monroe on with a personalized birthday song for the 42nd U.S. president.
Before she began to sing at the ‘Decade of Difference: A Concert Celebrating 10 Years of the William J. Clinton Foundation’ show in LA, Gaga played off of her song ‘Bad Romance’ by saying, “So tonight I just thought we all would get caught up in a little Bill romance.” The diva then sang the intro of ‘Bad Romance,’ but replaced the word “bad” with “Bill,” giving a nice little nod to Mr. Clinton. The Clinton family was absolutely delighted by Gaga’s tribute, smiling and clapping for Mother Monster.
As she broke into the actual version of ‘Bad Romance,’ Gaga stripped off of the nude skirt she was wearing to reveal a derrier-hugging pair of nude pants. The songstress proceeded to give a full-blown stage show, complete with backup dancers, an elaborate light show, and her signature ‘Bad Romance’ choreography.
Gaga also performed her piano-driven ballad ‘You and I’ during the show, saying things like “I love you and your hot wife” to the former Pres. Although she was performing for government officials, Gaga didn’t let it stop her from channeling her inner New Yorker as she dropped a few F-bombs and sexual comments during her show.
The songstress also altered ‘You and I,’ singing “So Hillary and Bill, sit back down where you belong in the oval office with those high heels on, sit back down on the couch where we watched you charm the whole world and the country … Somewhere, something about this place, somewhere about 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.”
Oh, Gaga. Nothing can stop you from being your outrageous self, and we love that. We’re just happy you decided to opt out of singing ‘Government Hooker’ this time around.
