Lady Gaga rubs elbows with Lana Del Rey and Diane Warren at the Weinstein Company's pre-Oscar dinner Saturday evening.

Lady Gaga wrapped up her performance of "Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me" alongside Elton John Saturday afternoon in West Hollywood and headed straight to hair and makeup for her appearance at the pre-Oscar dinner soirée. Gaga, who donned a custom black and white Brandon Maxwell gown, was joined by fiancé Taylor Kinney and was photographed chatting with Lana Del Rey and "Till It Happens To You" co-writer, Diane Warren. Gaga will perform the Oscar-nominated song come Sunday evening. It's for an award in the Best Original Song category against The Weeknd's "Earned It" from Fifty Shades of Grey, “Manta Ray” from Racing Extinction, “Simple Song #3” from Youth and Sam Smith's “Writing’s On The Wall” from Spectre.

Meanwhile, in a bid to free Kesha from her contractual obligation and alleged sexual abuser, Gaga is urging fans to pressure Sony into dropping Dr. Luke from the label. She wrote, "#PeopleOverProfit you can #FreeKesha if you #FreeDrLuke Do what is RIGHT not what is better for business."

#PeopleOverProfit you can #FreeKesha if you #FreeDrLuke Do what is RIGHT not what is better for business ??
