Lady Gaga gave a touching pep talk to California wildfire victims — even stopping to sing to one of them — as deadly flames continue to engulf sections of the state.
The “Bad Romance” singer, 32, turned up at the Red Cross shelter at Pacific Palisades High School on Sunday night and promised the crestfallen crowd, “I will be with you every step of the way, even the second that I leave this room. I love you, and you’re gonna get through this, and we’ll get through this together,” according to video posted by TMZ.
The “A Star Is Born” starlet nearly blended into the crowd with a makeup-free look, black-and-white trucker hat, simple gray tank top and rosary beads slung around her neck.
She stopped to snap photos, hand out gift cards and even sing to a 98-year-old female evacuee during the 90-minute visit.
“I know this is not easy. I know a lot of you are feeling a lot of pain right now and a lot of shock, and this might feel very surreal,” Gaga told the crowd. “I know that I feel kind of in a daze and I’m not really sure exactly when or how this is going to hit me when it does.”
She also urged the victims to take care of their mental health during their time of tragedy.
“It is so important that you take care of what’s going on in your head and in your heart,” she said.
Gaga was one of the thousands forced to flee her home in Malibu as flames crept closer.
“I am thinking so deeply for everyone who is suffering today from these abominable fires & grieving the loss of their homes or loved ones,” she tweeted Friday. “I’m sitting here with many of you wondering if my home will burst into flames. All we can do is pray together & for each other. God Bless You.”
Gaga did not say if her sprawling home survived the blaze, but photos posted on the Daily Mail showed it was unscathed Saturday.
