Lady Gaga is taking proper precautions during this unprecedented coronavirus epidemic.
Over the weekend, major cities including Los Angeles, New York City, and Chicago all temporarily shut down schools, restaurants, bars, gyms, and the like in an attempt to contain coronavirus. So the “Stupid Love” singer took to Instagram to share her decision to self-quarantine to do her part to keep the virus from spreading further.
With the announcement, Gaga shared two photos: one of her striking a pose on her couch with her three dogs while rocking sunglasses and a leather jacket, and one of her bundled up in a more relatable black hoodie flashing the peace sign.
“So I talked to some doctors and scientists. It’s not the easiest for everyone right now but the kindest/healthiest thing we can do is self-quarantine and not hang out with people over 65 and in large groups,” wrote the singer. “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. I’m hanging at home with my dogs. I love you world, we’ll all get through this. Trust me, I talked to God —she said we’re gonna be ok.”
Gaga continued to express her honest emotions surrounding the continually developing virus with a second post, urging her fans to be kind and support each other during such a trying time worldwide.
“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 corona virus is not prejudiced,” wrote Gaga. “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. We can create healing by learning how to be kind and take care of each other and ourselves during this time.”
