Gaga serenades Clinton with ‘Bill Romance’

Lady Gaga enjoyed her “first real Marilyn moment” with former President Bill Clinton.

The envelope-pushing pop superstar was one of several musicians who performed Saturday night at the Hollywood Bowl during a concert celebrating the 10th anniversary of Mr. Clinton’s foundation, which has sought for the past decade to improve global health, strengthen economies worldwide, promote healthier childhoods and protect the environment.

“I always wanted to have [a Marilyn moment], and I was hoping that it didn’t involve pills and a strand of pearls,” she joked.

Emerging from atop an all-white treehouse, Lady Gaga sported a wavy blond hairdo and red lips like Marilyn Monroe, who famously crooned “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” to President Kennedy in 1962. Lady Gaga similarly serenaded Mr. Clinton and changed several of her lyrics to reference him, including swapping out the title “Bad Romance” for “Bill Romance.”

“I thought, ‘My God. I get Lady Gaga, and I will have a heart attack celebrating my 65th birthday,’ ” Mr. Clinton said later.

Mr. Clinton, who turned 65 on Aug. 19 but celebrated his birthday at a posh Hollywood party Friday night, sat between wife Hillary and daughter Chelsea in the front row throughout Saturday’s event at the outdoor venue set against the Hollywood Hills. Other famous attendees included Maria Bello, Ashton Kutcher, Jason Segel, Ellen DeGeneres, Colin Farrell and Chevy Chase.
