WASHINGTON (AP) — Lady Gaga is coming to the White House. The pop singer is meeting with Obama administration staffers Tuesday to discuss her work on bullying prevention.

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

However, Gaga will not have a chance to meet with President Barack Obama. He is traveling to Kansas for a speech on the economy.

The president and Gaga have met before. The singer attended a fundraiser for Obama's re-election campaign in California earlier this year.
