Clinton hearts Gaga

(CNN) - Bill Clinton revealed his love for Lady Gaga Wednesday night, heaping praise on the Grammy Award-winning singer.

"She is the most talented person though, even if you're an old fogey like me" Clinton said on "The Late Show with David Letterman."

Gaga is scheduled to perform at an Oct. 15 party for Clinton at the Hollywood Bowl. But don't expect her to arrive wearing raw meat, as she's done in the past.

"In deference to my diet, she'll be meatless that night," Clinton said, referencing his heart-friendly diet.

    Obviously Bill's favorite Gaga song is "poker face".

    Clinton is the last one who needs to be talking about someone "going meatless." I wish he and Gaga would just go away.

    Lady Gaga is very entertaining and talented. I am not surprised that he likes her! Her duet with Tony Bennett of Lady is a Tramp is fantastic. Tony even compared her to Elvis.

    NVa Native I'm with you but didn't Lady Gaga favor the GOP back during the days of Michael Steele? I seem to recall that she performed for them at some function if I'm not mistaken. If my recollection is correct she would just be another in the legions of ex-Republican that has left their fold in light of what they have become.
    OU812IC you've enticed to go straight to YouTube from this site and check her out!

    Obama has changed the middle east. What would MItt Romney do. The middle eastern countries won't even
    listen to someone like Romney. He would be useless.

    Oh No – Big Dog's on the trail again! You know why the inadequate republicans hate him so much? They just can’t measure up!

    Sorry not to pass judgement or anything but I just cannot trust a dude that likes other dudes.
    I never saw where "the dude likes other dudes" – must be some gay code you're good at picking up on? You’re definitely no “Big Lebowski”.
    It says a lot when someone says you "can't trust a dude that likes other dudes" ~ and that's clearly an attempt to "pass judgment" – so lying and being a hypocrite would make you're a tee-bagger. Don’t let go of your dream.

    If Bill Clinton is irrelevant, why did you click and open this article and took the time to post? Give me a break....

    Yes. The lady and the tramp. Great combo. But in all seriousness people. Clinton was a good prez for 8 years despite his foibles. And he left with a surplus. Unlike the following 8 years of terror and war and dumbing down and out of control spiraling war debt and the debacle of corporations getting bigger and paying less and sending jobs overseas OYE. Monica. Where are you when we kneed you?

    To all the idiots making comments about Clinton staying relevant, name one Republican president doing good things for the planet today?

    Carter and Clinton both are doing humanitarian things on a frequent and regular basis. What humanitarian things are the idiot Bushs doing?

    That's right, please shut the **** up.

    Lady Gaga works hard for a living. She's got talent. She is versatile and has made a place for herself in this world. There isn't much sense in trying to diminish her standing (just for a comment board poster's closed-minded opinion).

    Bill Clinton's presidency saw the best economic years of my many-decades-long life. He's a great leader who put in at least a decade of his life 24/7/365 to make my life better – and I'm the better for it.

    Give credit where credit is due. Let go of prejudices and ill-based opinions. Let people be the best they can be – stay away from repression.
