Streisand, who was honored at the Kennedy Center Sunday evening for her legendary career, got a kiss on the cheek from the president at the White House shortly before the event kicked off. Streisand did give the president a kiss back.
The event was so surreal it was played on video for attendees of the Kennedy Center honors later in the evening.
"Art transcends politics this weekend," Streisand said of her venture to the Bush White House, according to the Associated Press.
Though Streisand, who has called for Bush's impeachment, said it would be "lovely" if she instead received the award under President-elect Barack Obama.
