    Apparently the telephone wasn't enough for Lady Gaga, she had to meet President Barack Obama in person.

    The pop singer was in Atherton Sunday night for the intimate Silicon Valley fundraiser with the president.

    The intimate gathering was held under a tent in the yard of Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg.

    Gaga wore a black, sleeveless gown and high heels. She wore her hair piled on top of her head.

    The event cost $35,800 per couple.

    Gaga attended as a paying guest. She said last week she wanted to meet with the president to discuss her concerns about bullying, but it wasn't clear whether the two had that discussion Sunday night.
