Lady Gaga returned to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday (April 6) to chat about life in quarantine and celebrating her recent 34th birthday.
In a video chat, the pop star revealed she’s quarantining with five other people at her office. “We decided to quarantine in the family office…just in case we needed to work on anything,” she told host Jimmy Fallon.
And as it turns out, Gaga has been hard at work on more than just anything, organizing the upcoming Global Citizen/World Health Organization “One World: Together at Home” concert and raising $35 million in donations for COVID-19 relief.
Gaga told Fallon that she and her loved ones are staying positive and grateful while sheltering in place. “Every day, we find the time to just look in each other’s eyes and go, ‘I love you, mean it!’ very closely,” she said. “The truth is, we really know and respect how hard people are working right now. I mean, there are so many healthcare workers on the front line responding to COVID-19, and we’ve spent a lot of time learning about it. We’ve spent a lot of time reading about it, watching about it, and we always take moments of gratitude throughout the day to remind ourselves that we have it very good, actually.”
The superstar also shared how she celebrated her 34th birthday while in quarantine with a cake and a small family dinner. However, Gaga’s perspective on the whole affair, which occurred as she was working with WHO to curate the special line-up, was decidedly unselfish. “Well, you know, birthdays are birthdays; they come and go,” she said. “Global pandemics don’t happen all the time.”
