Coronavirus: Lady Gaga self-quarantines with dogs, refuses to meet parents and grandparents to keep them safe
In her online post, the pop star said the kindest thing to do right now is to stay away from those over 65 and this is why she isn't meeting her family
World-renowned American pop singer Lady Gaga has announced that she is opting to self-quarantine along with her dogs as a precaution to the coronavirus pandemic. The announcement came with a photo she posted on social media.
On March 15, the 33-year-old 'Stupid Love' singer shared a new photo and a message on both Twitter and Instagram. The Grammy-and Oscar-winner brought a positive outlook to the pandemic as she called for unity and kindness. The message came with a close-up photo that showed Gaga wearing a gray hoodie and peering straight into the camera with two fingers in the shape of a "v" over her eyes.
In the caption, she wrote, "This is reminding I think a lot of us what it is to both feel like and be a human being. I think it's so important to acknowledge that we are and must be a global kind singular community. We can't do this without kindness. And coronavirus is not prejudiced."
She added, "My thought for the day is to accept there will be times we feel powerless and out of control — but we can fill that space with kindness and be a part of the solution to a world problem. We then have control." Gaga further added, "We can create healing by learning how to be kind and take care of each other and ourselves during this time."
Along with a photo of Lady Gaga and her dogs on Instagram, she also revealed on March 14 that she will not be making any trips to visit her parents or grandparents due to coronavirus. The singer is seen posing with three dogs and in the comment, she explained that after she spoke with "some doctors and scientists", she had come to the conclusion that it is "the kindest/healthiest thing to stay away from those over 65".
"I wish I could see my parents and grandmas right now but it's much safer to not so I don't get them sick in case I have it," she told her fans. "I'm hanging at home with my dogs," she said. "I love you world, we'll all get through this. Trust me, I talked to God — she said we're gonna be ok (sic)."
According to Rolling Stone, Lady Gaga announced on March 5 that she will play concerts in six cities in support of her upcoming album 'Chromatica Ball' which is scheduled for this summer. Beginning on July 24 in Paris, Gaga will make stops in London, Boston, Toronto and Chicago before wrapping up in New Jersey. At present, it is not clear whether there will be any changes to the tour dates due to the coronavirus pandemic.
