Lady Gaga’s ‘Stupid Love’ Interrupts a Serious Meeting on Coronavirus in Italy: Watch

Music, it has been said, has healing powers. If that’s true, Lady Gaga’s new song might just be the tonic.

In a video doing the rounds of social media, a very serious council meeting in Italy on the coronavirus had a light-hearted moment when someone’s phone went off, and the room filled with the unmistakable punchy notes of “Stupid Love”.

Gaga spotted the clip and retweeted it with the comment, “and this is why I make music.”

The coronavirus is no laughing matter in Italy, one of the worst hit territories outside of China, with at least 2,260 confirmed cases.

Gaga has a particularly strong connection with the European country. Both of her parents have Italian ancestry.

“Stupid Love” is the first track lifted from the pop superstar’s forthcoming sixth album, Chromatica, executive produced by BloodPop and Gaga. It’s due out April 10.
