Continuing her efforts to prevent bullying, Lady Gaga went to the White House for a very special meeting yesterday (December 6).

The “You and I” songstress got together with key administration staffers that work for President Barack Obama to discuss how to affect change in situations where children are being targeted by bullies.

Obama Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett shared, “Lady Gaga has described this cause as a personal one – she has said that as a child, she was often picked on for being different.”

“I am deeply moved by the way she has used her story, and her success, to inspire young people, and shine the spotlight on important issues.”

Ditching her usually outlandish garb, a dolled up Lady Gaga was spotted leaving The Hollywood Palladium after receiving the Trevor Hero Award in Los Angeles, CA on Sunday night (December 4).

The “Marry the Night” songstress looked lovely in a one-shoulder black dress accessorized with a diamond-encrusted head piece as she was chauffeured through a clamoring pack of paparazzi lining the venue’s exit.

On Saturday night, Gaga performed at the 2011 Jingle Ball and chatted with MTV News about her recent Grammy nominations.

She told, “I was just so happy and I feel so blessed. And, you know, to be nominated for my album three years in a row for the body of work means more than anything because I’m a songwriter. And to be appreciated as a songwriter and be able to call up my buddies who helped me write this album [‘Born This Way’] and helped me produce this record, and sort of all have our first moment together, it meant a lot to me and it still does. I’m very happy.”

On the heels of releasing her 14-minute long “Marry the Night” music video, Lady Gaga returned to Vevo with a just released three-part interview.

The eccentric 25-year-old sat down to address a number of topics throughout, with one of those being that she’s already begun work on her third studio album.

Adding that she plans on challenging herself on the notion of reality while putting together the “Born This Way” follow-up, Gaga explained, “I generally loathe reality. But I don’t believe this moment between the two of us is real. I believe this is a performance.”

The Mother Monster continued, “There’s seven lights and I’m mic’d and there’s a camera. But though all the mediums of my work I am now, even working on my next record, pushing further and further, in my mind, how can I more intensely and more perversely challenge myself to honour what is a real stage and what isn’t.”
