Lady Gaga has finally explained her incredibly awkward interview with Jimmy Fallon last week.
Fallon had called Gaga via FaceTime on April 2 and she immediately tried to stop the interview from even taking place.
“I can’t, Jimmy. I can’t talk right now. I’m really sorry, it’s just like, a really weird time,” Lady Gaga said during the Wednesday interview, later adding, “I can’t see you. Am I on TV?” Frazzled, Gaga first suggested she chat again with Fallon on Friday before quickly pivoting to a Monday appointment. “I can’t tell you everything right now, because I’m still ironing out the details. I have a lot of phone calls to make.”
It turned out that the big news was the announcement of the Global Citizen and the World Health Organization virtual benefit concert titled “One World: Together At Home,” which is set for April 18. Fallon is actually one of the hosts alongside Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colbert.
“I’m so sorry,” Lady Gaga said on Monday referring to last week’s odd chat. “We weren’t quite ready yet, and I really appreciate you being so nice about it. Thank you. I love you; I love your viewers and everyone at home watching; I just wish everybody well.”
Scheduled performers include Alanis Morissette, Andrea Bocelli, Billie Eilish, Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day, Burna Boy, Chris Martin, Eddie Vedder, Elton John, J Balvin, John Legend, Kacey Musgraves and Keith Urban.
