American pop star, winner of 13 Grammy Awards Lady Gaga became an official in the Biden Administration – the American president appointed her co-chairman of the Committee on Culture and the Arts, the White House website reports. Another co-chairman of the committee was producer Bruce Cohen, known for working on such popular films "American Beauty" and "Big Fish".
It is unlikely that the appointment of Lady Gaga can be called accidental. Firstly, the singer has repeatedly appeared in the traditional lists of Forbes magazine's most influential women in the world, and Time magazine's 100 most influential people in the world, and in addition, she is one of the most commercially successful female musicians in history, the report notes. Secondly, the American Democrats are probably strengthening their ranks in this way before the next election campaign, it's not for nothing that the singer actively supported Joe Biden during the previous campaign, and sang the US anthem at his inauguration.
It is known that the singer is actively engaged in charity and participates in various public campaigns. For example, in 2020, when the coronavirus pandemic began, she organized a charity television concert in favor of the World Health Organization's COVID-19 Solidarity and Response Fund. As a result, more than $128 million was raised.
The composition of the Committee on culture and the Arts is selected personally by the President of the United States, it includes figures of culture and art, scientists and philanthropists. Accordingly, this institution is engaged in the development of ideas in the cultural sphere of the country.
