As Hurricane Sandy pummeled the East Coast, causing massive floods, fires, and power outages over the last two days, many music stars took to Twitter to share their experiences in the storm (like Swizz Beatz  who tried to enjoy the dark with he and Alicia Keys ' toddler Egypt), to show their fears for loved ones (like Nicki Minaj ), to add a little comic relief (like Lady Gaga  and A-trak ) and to send their hopes and prayers to all those affected (like almost everyone). Below, check out a selection of 20 tweets from musicians who watched the storm from near and far.
