Obama's Encounter With a Pop Diva

President Obama loves to reference Lady Gaga to show how hip he is.

I'm hearing that the other day, after he made a speech about the importance of the hate crimes legislation he signed, the Prez was greeted by '80s singer and LGBT supporter Cyndi Lauper, who told him, "It's about time!"

In response, Obama told Cyndi he loved her music and, with a twinkle in his eye, he added, "Lady Gaga stole your act!"

I happen to think they're both complete originals.
