Lady Gaga is meeting with Obama administration staffers at the White House today "to talk about the important issue of bullying," a senior White House official tells CBS News.
Gaga will not be meeting with President Obama, who is speaking in Kansas today. More details of Gaga's visit are expected to be released later today. Earlier this year the White House held an anti-bullying conference, and the administration estimates that bullying affects approximately 13 million students.
The entertainer, a tireless advocate for equality, was honored over the weekend with the Trevor Project's Hero award and recently launched her Born This Way Foundation, which will help combat antigay bullying.
