    This is a serious topic, but we can't help wondering if she'll be dressed as cheese or something.

    Lady Gaga is coming to the White House, and no, it isn't a wacky sitcom premise.

    The "Born This Way" singer is meeting with Obama administration staffers Tuesday to discuss her work on bullying prevention.

    Earlier this year, the White House held an anti-bullying conference earlier this year, and the administration estimates that bullying affects 13 million students, or about a third of those attending school.

    Gaga's efforts have included the personal (she made a personalized video for a high school student who had asked for help with an anti-bullying assembly) and the wide-reaching (she called for anti-bullying laws after the suicide of a gay teenage boy). Her Born This Way Foundation launched last month.

    The singer won't have a chance to meet with President Barack Obama. He's traveling to Kansas for a speech on the economy, but they havemet before. Gaga attended a fundraiser for Obama's re-election campaign in California earlier this year.
