WASHINGTON (AP) -- Lady Gaga wants to meet with President Barack Obama about her concerns over bullying.

Gaga expressed sadness over Twitter Wednesday about the suicide
death of a 14-year-old New York boy who had complained in an online
video about being bullied over his sexuality.

The pop singer tweeted to her 13.7 million followers: "I am
meeting with our President. I will not stop fighting. This must
end."

A Democratic official says Gaga plans to attend an Obama
fundraiser next week on the West Coast but no private meeting has
been scheduled.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity and was not authorized to speak publicly about the fundraiser.

Jamey Rodemeyer described in videos being taunted in his school
hallways and receiving hateful messages online before his suicide
death.
