Lady Gaga Will Treat White House Staffers to Her Musical Stylings During the Inauguration Festivities

There's a rumor spreading around Washington D.C. faster than the latest iteration of flu: Lady Gaga will perform at Tuesday's ball for White House staffers. If you're a White House staffer, you're probably thinking to yourself, "I won't believe this, I can't believe this — life has disappointed me too many times for me to simply give myself over to the euphoria that would be a Very Gaga Inauguration." But there's no reason to be so pessimistic! When you think about it, why wouldn't Lady Gaga turn out for the inauguration?

Politico also mentions that Gaga will be joining a list of performers that includes fellow divas Beyoncé and Katy Perry. Can the three coexist in the same city for the duration of the festivities without the universe imploding? Stay tuned.
