Lady Gaga nabs £8m during FaceTime chat with apple ceo

Lady Gaga is a true hero after getting the Apple CEO to open his oversized wallet to raise money during the Coronavirus crisis. 

The Bad Romance singer chatted with Tim Cook on The Tonight Show as part of her One World: Together at Home fundraising project.

On a mission to raise funds to help beat the outbreak, Gaga has been recruiting financial donors for The World Health Organisation’s Covid-19 Solidarity Response Fund.

Money raised will go towards Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), testing kits, and improving lab capacity for testing.

During a segment on Jimmy Fallon’s show, Gaga could be seen dialling the business guru from home to respect the current social distancing rules.

Making sure he honoured what he had promised off-camera, Gaga cornered him saying: “We spoke last night about a certain number for the donation and it was quite sizeable. 

“I just wanted to make sure we were okay on that this morning, can I confirm you for that?”

Cook responded: “Yes, you can confirm me. We are so proud to be a part of this.”

Jimmy later revealed that Cook had pledged £8million ($10m), towards the pot which has so far raised £28.3m ($35m).

Gaga – real name Stefani Germanotta – has been incredibly driven during the outbreak. 

She recently spoke during a WHO media briefing, expressing her gratitude to healthcare professionals across the globe who are on the frontline.

The LGBTQ + advocate also loaned her talents to online music festival, One World: Together at Home.

The star-studded line-up including Billie Eilish, Stevie Wonder, and Chris Martin streamed on April 18.

The objective was not to raise cash, but to share positivity during these surreal times.

The singer explained: “We want to highlight the gravity of this historical, unprecedented, cultural movement. And, we want to celebrate and encourage the power of the human.

“Put your wallet away, put anything away that you need to, and sit back and enjoy the show that you all very much deserve.”
