Lady Gaga serenaded former US President Bill Clinton at the weekend as part of a belated 65th birthday concert.

The singer changed the lyrics to her 2009 chart topper 'Bad Romance' to 'Bill Romance' briefly for her tribute which she compared to Marilyn Monroe's famous ‘Happy Birthday, Mr President’ salute to John F Kennedy in 1962. Scroll down and click below to watch Gaga performing the track.

Referring to the ex-president's love for saxophone playing, she also said:

I wish you were playing sax with me tonight, baby.

Clinton's birthday was on August 19 but he chose to celebrate it at the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday (October 15).

"I thought, 'My God. I get Lady Gaga, and I will have a heart attack celebrating my 65th birthday'," he said before adding: "I am the only person in history who got to be president and then had a post-presidential birthday party attended by both Lady Gaga and [my wife Hillary Clinton] the secretary of state."

U2's Bono and The Edge also performed an acoustic set at the event which was watched by Stevie Wonder and Hollywood stars Ashton Kutcher and Colin Farrell.

Gaga recently met current US President Barack Obama to lobby over the problem of teenage bullying in the wake of the suicide of 14-year-old fan Jamie Rodemeyer.
