Lady Gaga has a new role to add to her resumé, and it's neither singer, actress, nor dancer!

The multi-hyphenate superstar has earned herself a special role in the White House, appointed by President Joe Biden himself.

Along with film producer Bruce Cohen, the star has been named co-chair of the President's Committee on the Arts and the Humanities.

It added: "PCAH advises the President and the heads of U.S. cultural agencies on policy, philanthropic and private sector engagement, and other efforts to enhance federal support for the arts, humanities, and museum and library services. The PCAH will also engage the nation’s artists, humanities scholars, and cultural heritage practitioners to promote excellence in the arts, humanities, and museum and library services and demonstrate their relevance to the country’s health, economy, equity, and civic life."
