Gaga Tells Hollywood Bowl She Would Have Said 'Fuck You' To Anyone Who Told Her She Would One Day Perform For the Clintons
Although Lady Gaga's performance at the Hollywood Bowl last night was full of sexual innuendo and she was singing at a (belated) celebration of Bill Clinton's birthday, it would be a stretch to call it Gaga's Marilyn moment.
"I always wanted to have one, and I was hoping that it didn't involve pills and a strand of pearls," Gaga joked.
Gaga, who seems to be on an inspirational kick, added that she was incredulous that she was there at all: "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 them. I would have given a good American fuck you."
Gaga along with Kenny Chesney, Bono, and Stevie Wonder were performing at the Hollywood Bowl to benefit the Clinton Foundation.
Gaga switched up — and sexed up — the lyrics to her songs, like changing "Bad Romance" to "Bill Romance" and singing:
"It's been 12 years since you came around. It's been a long time but you're back in town. This time I'm not leaving without you. 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."
Bill (unsurprisingly) didn't seem to mind attention at all, telling the Associated Press: "I thought, 'My God. I get Lady Gaga, and I will have a heart attack celebrating my 65th birthday.'"
