Lady Gaga doesn't f--k around.

The singer met with President Obama yesterday to address bullying issues at a political fundraiser in Silicon Valley, CA. She pleaded with everyone "to do what they can to prevent bullying," according to a source at ABC News.

This action was based on the recent death of Jamey Rodemeye, a big Gaga fan, who was recently bullied because of his sexual orientation to the point of suicide.

"The past days I've spent reflecting, crying, and yelling. I have so much anger. It is hard to feel love when cruelty takes someones life," Gaga said of Rodemeye's death. "Jamey Rodemeyer, 14 yrs old, took his life because of bullying. Bullying must become illegal. It is a hate crime. I am meeting with our President. I will not stop fighting. This must end. Our generation has the power to end it. Trend it #MakeALawForJamey."

Ricky Martin joined Gaga by posting on Twitter to his 4 million followers, "How many lives do we have to lose to finally stop the harassment, hatred, bigotry, abuse? #BULLYING #MakeALawForJamey." His Twitter icon was also changed to a picture of Rodemeye.

Gaga is well-known supporter for the LGBT community. "She makes me so happy and she let's me know that I was born this way," Rodemeye said of Gaga in a video for the It Gets Better campaign on May 4.
