If he’s not elected, she’s gonna "build a new planet" for all her Little Monsters. During their "productive bilateral talks," he thought her 16-inch heels were "a little intimidating." Are y’all ready to play the Presidential edition of Democrat or Diva: Barack Obama vs Lady Gaga!
Yeah, we went big on this one. We’re talking about two bonafide history makers: Obama’s the first African-American Prez of the United States of America and Gaga was the first pop star to rock a meat dress. Aaaaand she’s also one of the best selling artists of all time -- an estimated 23 million albums and 64 million singles worldwide. Forget edge of glory, they jumped off that career cliff a loooooong time ago.

Both also spent formative years in NYC -- The Gaga formerly known as Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta grew up in the Big Apple, studied at the Convent of the Sacred Heart and briefly attended New York University while Barry got his undergrad political science degree at Columbia. During those college days, he was literally “Becoming Obama” AND learning the language of love -- one of his old gfs even revealed that the POTUS with the Mostess totes has a poker face!
Mother Monster cares about the same issues as Sasha and Malia's Pops-in-Chief as well -- which she revealed when we asked the pop princess what she would do as President for the day. Barack repealed the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” Act that LGBT activist Lady Gaga so fiercely protested and he officially became the first sitting President to come out (pun intended!) in support of same-sex marriage earlier this year. Miss Gaga even went to DC for a personal chat with the Prez to talk solutions in the fight against bullying -- a battle her Born This Way Foundation is constantly waging. Speaking of her self-empowerment anthem, have you seen Barack’s version?!?!

Who knows what (or who) Gaga was thinking about when she wrote “Government Hooker,” but one thing’s for sure -- y’all are gonna have a helluva time deciding which Americano said what in this quiz! Ra-ra-ra-ready??
