Lady Gaga Bill Clinton
October 17, 2011 by staff
The performance was part of a stellar tribute to former U.S. president and its foundation ten years ago.
Dressed in a blonde wig for a “moment of Marilyn Monroe” with Mr. Clinton, the pop superstar wished him a belated “Happy Birthday” before launching into a bustling Romance bill in the bowl full of Hollywood .
At one point dropped to conduct one-on-one for the former president, who was sitting in the front row, flanked by his wife of Clinton USA Secretary of State Hillary and daughter Chelsea.
“How cool is 65 years and you Lady Gaga, are we going?” Clinton asked the crowd in a brief speech in the middle of the show, which also included performances by Stevie Wonder, Bono and The Edge, and Usher.
But he added: “And then I asked … I said I was going to have a Marilyn moment, I thought, God Lady Gaga and I’m having a heart attack the celebration of my 65th birthday.”
The show – to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the William J. Clinton – Motown legend began with great tone with the perfect tone for interpretations of time in my life and superstition.
After country star Kenny Chesney came Somali artist K’Naan – aided by Bono in 2010 World Cup anthem Wavin ‘Flag – which paid tribute to the work of Clinton to try to bring peace to their homeland.
Usher surprised with a moving Joe C**ker – in-Woodstock, and interpretation of the Beatles with a little help from my friends, followed by a strong choreography to the beats of dance anthems Yes, and OMG.
Then came Lady Gaga, who did his usual trick of stealing the show for exuberance – including at least an insult that might have tested the producers of the live version of the concert streamed out of Yahoo.
In explaining her “Marilyn moment,” he joked in typical style: “I always wanted one, and I had hoped that do not involve pills and a necklace of pearls.”
A video parody by a group of Hollywood stars like Ben Stiller, Sean Penn, Jack Black, Matt Damon and Kevin Spacey – and Mr. Clinton himself – always a bit of comic relief, as it happens and Barbra Ellen DeGeneres Streisand.
Bono returned with fellow U2 The Edge – “a couple of street musicians in Ireland,” as he calls them – to help close the show in tribute along the way Clinton’s role in achieving a peace agreement Northern Ireland.
The Irish rocker turned activist also said Clinton’s role in the fight against HIV and poverty in Africa and climate change, both within and outside the office.
To conclude, Mr. Clinton paid tribute to his wife, recalling how they met 40 years ago, and how their lives have changed since leaving the White House in 2001.
“For 30 years I was in politics and she did 10 years ago and it moved. I like it, I like when you’re in public office and I am doing … this kind of thing,” he said.
And he boasted: “I am the only person in history who became president, who then had a birthday party attended post-presidential Lady Gaga and both the Secretary of State.”
