Lady GaGa is really sorry for awkwardly hanging up on Jimmy Fallon during a live video chat. Days after making headlines for abruptly ending a video call with the host of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon“, the “Stupid Love” singer made a return to the show and offered an explanation for her questionable act.
During the Monday, April 6 episode of the “The Tonight Show: Home Edition”, the 34-year-old singer/songwriter claimed that she wasn’t “quiet ready yet.” She gushed, “I’m so sorry … I really appreciate you being so nice about it, and thank you. I love you, I love your viewers, and everyone at home watching. I just wish everybody well.”
Upon hearing her apology, Fallon kindly answered, “We love you all too and it turned out to be really kind of a fun bit for us and got a lot of people talking and a lot of people excited about what we’re about to discuss tonight.”
During the chat, the “Poker Face” hitmaker also discussed about her belief in “kindness currency” and “financial currency” during the coronavirus crisis. Noting both held an equal importance, she said, “I think there’s a lot of people that are at home right now that are wondering how they can help, and they feel like they can’t, and they don’t know how to. And one of the ways that you can is to be kind.”
Calling the COVID-19 a “catastrophe”, the “Bad Romance” songstress stressed that “kindness is the most important thing.” She added, “We must be compassionate to each other … While you’re being kind and making sure that you know what you have and what you don’t, [it’s important] that you take those moments to have gratitude.”
As for her delayed “very big” news, GaGa shared that she would release a TV special called “One World: Together At Home” in partnership with Global Citizen. Fallon himself would be the host of the huge event alongside fellow late night TV hosts, Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel.
“I mean, come on all three of you agreed to join forces for a good cause. I’m so happy [that] NBC, CBS and ABC, everybody’s working together,” the Oscar-winning singer said. “We’ll have artists. We will have lots of different people, we’ll have athletes. We’re also going to have Sesame Street. We’re going to have amazing hosts and actors and the truth is that we’re also going to do a lot of other things that are going to be different and exciting and this is what I really want to do with the show.”
GaGa made the shortest “Tonight Show” interview back on April 1. The “Born This Way” hitmaker appeared to be distracted and busy talking to her assistants when Fallon called her and asked her to share an “announcement you’re going to say tonight on our show.” To his request, she responded, “I can’t Jimmy. I, uh, can’t talk right now. I’m sorry. It’s just a really, really weird time.”
Still, Fallon tried to persuade GaGa by reminding her that “there’s something very big you’re working on that’s going to help people right now.” The “Shallow” singer, however, insisted she “can’t tell you everything right now because I’m still ironing out the details and I have a lot of phone calls to make,” puzzling the TV host.
