Lady Gaga meets Julian Assange

Lady Gaga

So, on Monday night Lady Gaga dressed up as a witch and went and hung out with Julian Assange at the Ecuadorian embassy in London. And just in case you for some reason think that sounds unlikely, she also posted photographic evidence to her LittleMonsters social networking site.

Gaga had been in London to promote her new perfume, Fame, at Harrods. According to reports she spent five hours with the Wikileaks founder and the pair had dinner together. Assange is currently holed up in the Ecuador embassy, where he sought asylum earlier this year, to avoid extradition to Sweden to face sexual assault charges. He fears that Swedish authorities will in turn extradite him to the US, where he is wanted for leaking government information via WikiLeaks.

The meeting with Gaga came after MIA tweeted the singer on Sunday, saying: “If [you’re] at Harrods today come visit Assange at the Ecuador embassy across the [street]. I’m there. I’ll bring TEA and CAKE”.
