Because it's 2017, words have no meaning, everything is weird, up is down and down is left, East is February and West is Kanye, and America exists in the riddle dimension. So fittingly, former Presidents George H.W. Bush and Barack Obama are tweeting at each other about Lady Gaga.
In case you missed it, Lady Gaga and all five living former presidents—Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama—appeared on the same stage at Texas A&M University on Saturday, October 21, for the Deep From the Heart: The One America Appeal concert. It's aim was to raise money and awareness for communities hurt by the recent deadly hurricane season. Gaga's appearance was a bit of a surprise, since she wasn't billed as being on the lineup, but she brought the house down with performances of songs like "You and I" and "Edge of Glory."
A backstage photo from the event shared by Gaga and depicting her standing behind all five former leaders recently went viral, and now two of our former presidents, the first Bush and Obama, are reminiscing about the night on Twitter.
"Not sure abt 39, @BillClinton, 43 and @BarackObama, but I would have sung w @ladygaga if asked. Thanks to all for supporting @AmericaAppeal," wrote Bush. Obama then quote-tweeted with the response, "I'll let you and @ladygaga handle the singing, and we'll handle the donations. There's still time to give: http://oneamericaappeal.org."
Gaga responded—tagging only Obama, and none of the other POTUSes—with, "❤️you so much for doing all this for our country and showing great leadership to the world!"
Is this the start of not just a friendship, but a collaboration? Will Gaga take 41 up on his offer to jam together? Will they convince Grammy-winning Obama to guest star on her next album? Might Bill Clinton be interested in backing them on his tenor sax? Anything is possible, literally. The world makes no sense anymore.
