Lady Gaga sends video message of support to Japan: "I love you!"
Los Angeles, California - For pop superstar and Oscar winner Lady Gaga, the resilience of the Japanese after the tsunami disaster ten years ago also provides hope in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.
"I have so much respect to the people of Japan for your strength, kindness, and love for each other," the singer said in a video message marking the anniversary of the triple disaster of earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear accident in Fukushima.
These experiences, she said, give "hope" to people around the world struggling through the coronavirus pandemic.
On March 11, 2011, a huge earthquake hit Japan, which in turn triggered a massive tsunami that devastated the northeastern part of the country, killing some 20,000 people. The tsunami also caused a nuclear disaster at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, forcing thousands to evacuate their homes.
Lady Gaga (34) said she could imagine many people are still suffering emotionally and mentally from the disaster, saying, "So let’s all continue to support each other, be kind to each other, and love each other."
Lady Gaga ended her message in Japanese with the words, "I love you."
The pop star recently suffered a personal nightmare as her two dogs were kidnapped in a shocking attack. The crime nearly claimed the life of her dog walker, Ryan Fischer.
