US president Barack Obama has revealed that he was 'intimidated' when he first met Lady Gaga.


According to ABC News, Obama told those in attendance at the Human Rights Campaign gala in Washington D.C about his encounter with the singer.

He said: ''I held some productive bilateral talks with your leader. She was wearing 16-inch heels. She was eight feet tall. It was a little intimidating''

As previously reported on Gigwise, Lady Gaga wanted to meet with the president following the suicide of a fan Jamey Rodemeyer, who killed himself after being bullied about his sexuality.

She told fans over Twitter: "I am meeting with our President. I will not stop fighting. This must end. Our generation has the power to end it.''
