Lady Gaga is taking a moment to thank the people who helped make a scary situation better.
In a new interview with People, Gaga revealed that a “very important member of [her] family” was recently hospitalized with an undisclosed illness for two months. Gaga described what it was like to watch the essential workers at the hospital care for them, saying, “I was in the ICU by myself many times because you can’t go in with more than one person, if you can go in at all. I have never seen the heroic acts of bravery that I witnessed, watching these doctors and nurses and people that were cleaning at the hospitals.”
The “Rain on Me” singer added how touched she was that the staff even took the time to make sure she was feeling all right. “They put their heart and soul into their work, and they even cared for me, who — I assure you, nobody could even recognize me behind all the gear that I had on,” she said. “They just said, ‘How are you doing? How is your family? Is everything OK? Can we do anything?'”
The news comes after Gaga appeared in a new ad to promote the WELL Health-Safety Seal, a new third-party rating system to ensure that a building’s health protocols are adequate for keeping visitors safe from COVID-19.”It’s essential work to getting us back into buildings and indoor spaces,” she said of the new ad. “It is very important that as a result of what’s happened because of COVID-19, we start to rebuild the global community; we won’t be able to rebuild the global community until we start building it at the local level.”
