Just because we’re inside doesn’t mean we can’t still watch our favorite late-night talk shows. We just have to watch them virtually! Jimmy Fallon has transformed his show to The Tonight Show: At Home Edition so we can still have our laughs, only from the comfort of the indoors. On Monday night, Lady Gaga made a special appearance on the show (via video chat, of course) to talk about COVID-19, how it’s impacting her life, and about her music festival fundraiser with the World Health Organization that will take place on April 18.
On Instagram posts, Lady Gaga revealed how she would postpone the release date of her sixth studio album, Chromatica, to a later point in 2020. “This is such a hectic and scary time for all of us, and while I believe art is one of the strongest things we have to provide joy and healing to each other during times like this, it just doesn’t feel right to me to release this album with all that is going on during this global pandemic,” she wrote.
In her conversation with Jimmy Fallon, Gaga mentions how she quarantined in her family office with a group of 6, just in case she needed to work on anything. She acknowledges how lucky she is to be quarantined somewhere safe and how she has spent this time educating herself on the situation. However, Gaga stresses the importance of kindness, especially during these trying times.
“What’s so true about times like now is that there’s financial currency, but then there’s kindness currency. They’re both equally as important.” She says.
“This is a time of catastrophe, and in a time of catastrophe, kindness is the most important thing. We must be compassionate to each other,” she says. “Also, self-awareness, while you’re being kind, and making sure that you know what you have and what you don’t and that you take those moments to have gratitude.”
