Twitter is abuzz with photos of Lady Gaga performing at tonight’s inaugural ball for White House staff. Yes, you read that correctly. Lady Gaga is being allowed to perform at an official White House function. It was a private event, which kept the press from going gaga over the musical entertainment. In other news, Hell’s first outdoor skating rink will have its grand opening next week.

What is the world coming to?

And finally, the crowning indignity:

No, Tony, no! Resist the dark side! You must!

The performance seems to have gone over well with the White House staff, who are solidly in Gaga’s demographic.

If this is any indication, we’re in for a long four years.
