Lady Gaga, as always turned heads at the US Capitol on Wednesday as she crooned a rendition of the US National Anthem 'The Star Spangled Banner' during Joe Biden and Kamala Harris' inauguration in Washington. In attendance were several public figures including former President Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama.
But what was noticeable for netizens and anyone who was tuned in to the proceedings of the inauguration event was that at one point, Gaga had a lot to tell the former President. The duo seemed to have an easy camaraderie as well as they hugged and spoke for long, so much so that it piqued the interest of the internet.
Ok but what do Obama & Lady Gaga just so casually talk about?!?
