Just weeks after the delay of her highly-anticipated comeback album ‘Chromatica‘, Lady Gaga has announced that she’s helped raise $35 million for the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Solidarity Response Fund.
The statement comes from Gaga herself during a WHO briefing, as she shared that she’s been working with corporations and fellow philanthropists to provide PPEs, testing kits, and improve facilities all over the world.
Gaga was initially met with criticism for delaying ‘Chromatica‘ amidst the Coronavirus outbreak, as she was accused of only being in it for the sales and not wanting her fans to enjoy her music even during the lockdowns.
Well, it’s obvious that she’s been busy, TBH.
Along with the money raised, Gaga is also set to hold a large-scale televised concert this April 18 with the likes of fellow artists Paul McCartney, Billie Eilish, Chris Martin, Lizzo, and more.
Gaga’s ‘One World‘ concert will also be hosted by late-night hosts Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, and Stephen Colbert.
‘My heart is very, very, achy and warm for those who are ER doctors and nurses who are sleeping in cars to make sure they don’t infect their families or their patients,’ Gaga shared on her decision to help out humanitarian efforts.
‘What you’re doing is putting yourselves in harm’s way to help the world, and we all salute you and you are a triumph, truly.’
Salute to the Pop Queen
