Sprinkled among the performances at various events are celeb appearances like inaugural committee co-chair Eva Longoria along with Chelsea Clinton singer-songwriter Ben Folds, Star Jones, Angela Bassett and gospel singer Yolanda Adams. Not to mention Harvey WeinsteinOscar-winning actress Viola Davis and producer and campaign booster Colleen Bell.

As for whose footsteps Lady Gaga is following in?

None other than Jay-Z, who reportedly edited his own lyrics back in 2009 to, wait for it,  "99 Problems but George Bush Ain't One."
