Lady Gaga On COVID-19 Anxiety: 'We'll All Get Through This'
Lady Gaga took to social media over the weekend to address the feelings of anxiety many people have as the world grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic.
“This is reminding I think a lot of us what it is to both feel like and be a human being,” the pop star wrote on Instagram. “I think it’s so important to acknowledge that we are and must be a global kind singular community. We can’t do this without kindness.”
Gaga added: “My thought for the day is to accept there will be times we feel powerless and out of control – but we can fill that space with kindness and be a part of the solution to a world problem. We then have control. We can create healing by learning how to be kind and take care of each other and ourselves during this time.”
Earlier, Gaga – like Ariana Grande and Taylor Swift – urged her fans to follow the advice of health experts and self-isolate.
“It’s not the easiest for everyone right now but the kindest/healthiest thing we can do is self-quarantine and not hang out with people over 65 and in large groups,” she said. “I wish I could see my parents and grandmas right now but it’s much safer to not so I don’t get them sick in case I have it.”
Gaga said she is staying home with her dogs. “I love you world, we’ll all get through this,” she wrote.
