Lady Gaga is one of the more than 250,000 residents who have had to leave their homes after the Woolsey Fire began to encroach on Malibu, Calabasas and thousands of acres of land across Los Angeles and Ventura counties on Friday.
Even though Gaga is unsure of whether or not she will have a home to return to, that uncertainty didn’t stop her from spending time at a shelter and encouraging those staying there to get the help they need in the meantime.
“I’m not exactly sure when or how this is gonna hit me when it does,” she said. “What I can tell you is that I will pray for each and every one of you. You will be in my thoughts. I extend my love to each and every one of you. I know we do not know each other, but I love you. This is an emergency, but you are not alone, and we have each other.”
The A Star Is Born singer also encouraged those staying at the shelter to take advantage of the resources available to them – namely, their mental health team – and to take care of each other in the wake of the devastating event.
