Lady Gaga delivers pizza, coffee and gift cards to fire evacuees

Firefighters and first responders are working around the clock on the California fires and in the shelters for both humans and animals. Pretty much anyone who calls themselves a Californian or inhabitant wishes they could do so much more to help. Most businesses allow you to add a donation on to your purchase price that helps with fire recovery. Many of us have taken bags of clothes, books, games and personal items to various drop off points. Most donate online. And those who can, go the extra step, which is awesome. Lady Gaga was evacuated from her home due to the Woosley Fire in Malibu. She didn’t lose her home, thank goodness. Because Tuesday was World Kindness Day, a day that Gaga says is her favorite or the year, she appealed to everyone on Twitter to perform one act of kindness. And then she led by example. Gaga personally delivered pizza, coffee and gift cards to various evacuation shelters across LA.

59 people have been killed in the three fires. They just found another body in Agoura Hills yesterday. So many Californians are displaced and don’t know if they will have a home to go back to. Honestly, I don’t care what Gaga’s motivation was in doing this. I think she’s probably a caring person who was deeply affected by these horrific fires and wanted to give back. But even if this is all a calculated move to put her atop the Oscar list, she’s helping people who deserve it so I’m giving her props. This was amazing and I think more of Gaga for doing it.

We talked about Sandra Bullock the other day but some others that deserve a shoutout are Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth. Miley and Liam lost their home. In response, they co-founded The Malibu Foundation that is designed to assist with youth homelessness, with a focus on LGTBQ. The couple also donated half a million dollars of their own to the foundation.

You know what, sometimes people just rock.

    Immediately after the fire, Miley posted a note saying she was ok and so was Liam and their dogs and that was mattered, that everything else could be replaced and immediately urging to help people who lost everything and don’t have the resources to replace it immediately and providing links of where to donate. I think Miley has indulged in a lot of questionable stunt behaviour but has a really great heart.

    Unless the celeb is literally posting a pic on IG captioned “look how awesome I am for doing this!” I will not shade them for helping. Pizza, coffee, clothes, money, toiletries…I’m sure it’s all needed. Good for you, Lady Gaga!

    I love this, and I love Lady Gaga. Meanwhile, the man with Lady Gaga has an amazing instagram feed. Following him…

    Good for Gaga. One of my friends has been working rescuing animals in Mailbu and Agoura, and it’s just a hell hole right now.

    Also, I’m really angry at how judgmental some folks are about her on twitter right now. People had limited time to evacuate, and Gaga apparently got multiple horses, several dogs, and all of her animals out but some chickens. And several people are dragging her, or at least were on twitter, for leaving some chickens (which let’s be real, people eat chickens) without recognizing that people had very little time, it’s dangerous, chickens are hard to catch, and that she had to handle evacuating multiple horses (which is very hard to do! they often get freaked out at smoke/fire and the sounds of everything!) and dogs. Like if it comes down to endangering my life and the rest of my animals for a couple of damn chickens, or taking all my horses and dogs and other pets to safety and getting out of a danger zone, I’d do the latter 100% of the time. Gaga made the right choice.

    I would never leave behind my dog and some owners are negligent, but I feel like a lot of people don’t recognize that sometimes roads are blocked off and you are prevented from going home once a fire starts, or that cats run away and hide, etc. My friend had to console this 78 year old lady who was crying and hysterical because she only managed to get three out of her four horses out (there wasn’t enough room in her trailer) and my friend, who works with the animal evacuation/rescue group, went back to get her fourth horse and to rescue her outdoor barn cat which the lady couldn’t find. Luckily, my friend was able to get the fourth horse and the cat, but the point is situations are often really complicated and it’s hard to judge until you live through it.

      Your friend is a hero and a good person.

      People who’ve never seen a wildfire in person don’t realize how rapidly they can cover ground. At the end of the day, you prioritize the humans first and go down the line if possible.

      The animal situation is so sad. Many people had to make these decision whether to release their animals and set them free or leave them in cages. The photos of horses running wild through flames are both magestic and tragic.

      Malibu is very much a horse community. I bet a lot of families said goodbye to horses they deeply loved.

    I can’t imagine what it’s like to be in the path of these fires, so frightening and unpredictable. Good for Gaga and other celebs and non-celebs who are helping people get through the devastation, even as some are experiencing their own.

  6. CharliePenn says:

    These fires are breaking my heart. People losing everything in an instant, and for the average person it will be an incredibly hard recovery. The wealthy will be better off to recover and so if someone like Gaga is setting an example to GIVE, then that is wonderful. Our piece of shit President should take notice.

    I am so terrified at the thought of what these people are going through. I’m in the northeast and so far we haven’t had too many natural disasters but my husband and I are talking about preparing emergency supplies because it seems huge natural disasters are the new trend. This human race is going to have to pull TOGETHER.

    I am totally out of donation funds for the year (we have been giving our donation budget and then some to Puerto Rico, my husbands home land that has suffered so greatly). In January we will reassess where we will donate. I’m sure California will have great need for a long time. People with a high profile are doing a good thing in bringing awareness to the level of need.

    I think her motives are genuine. There are wonderful people out in this world. My heart aches for all of those in CA.

    In the midst of such heartbreak over these fires it’s been really moving to see the responses of these celebrities, who themselves have lost a lot, or have come close to it. I’ve seen a lot of people sneering about how there’s no need to feel sorry for them, they have the money to replace everything, etc etc. And sure, they’re luckier than most. But there must still be incredible heartache at losing at losing so much.

    To see how classy the responses of people like Miley and Liam, who really did lose their entire home and everything they had in it, but still recognise how privileged they are compared to so many, is really something compared to awful AWFUL Trump’s response. They’re just in their twenties, but they’ve done more to reach out and help people in their community recover than the President of their COUNTRY.

    And Lady Gaga too- she didn’t just swing by with gifts for a quick photo-op. I read she sat and talked with people, played with kids, sang to an elderly lady, and offered to pay for mental health help for people who needed it. Sure, she might want to win awards, but I don’t think you can fake that kind of genuine caring. It was just real kindness on her part.

    This is very kind and generous of her.
    This is a horrific tragedy for all involved, even if you are wealthy and able to rebuild, it’s still terrifying and traumatic to watch your home destroyed. I really feel for those who are not so fortunate and will struggle to rebuild or start over elsewhere, and for all of those who have lost loved ones, including animals. Last I saw was 56 have died, and nearly 300 are still missing.

  10. Herewegoagain says:

    I do feel for those in LA, I do, but my heart is with those in Paradise. Maybe it’s because I’m closer to there or maybe because I know people that are victims of that fire. Either way it’s really frustrating to see the the Woolsey Fire get more coverage than the Camp Fire. For those that don’t know, these two fires are burning 500 miles apart. The Camp Fire is Northern California is now the largest and deadliest is state history. An entire town is gone. Not just houses, but businesses, town hall, farm land, gone. Thousands are displaced and don’t have the means to survive that those down south do. Paradise was also a retirement community so the average age of those affected is high. Every article I read is about how to help those in LA not in Butte County. I don’t want to compare peoples pain or dismiss those in LA but it’s really the difference between breaking an arm and having it amputated.

    • Birdix says:

      Yes, it’s unfortunate that LA gets more attention because of the celebrity, because these victims will need so much more help. The Camp Fire burned more that 10,000 structures (vs 400) and the death toll is at 56 (and will continue to rise). And it’ll be burning until the end of November. They’re saying the devastation is so complete that with no infrastructure, it’ll be very very difficult to rebuild. It’s hard to wrap your mind around the horror of those trying to escape.

    • Hecate says:

      The Camp Fire up north is absolutely gutting. Since we are a celebrity blog, we need a celebrity angle for a story plus I live in LA so I am a little aware of what is going on here. But I have relatives who’ve been evacuated in Nor Cal and the stories from Paradise and other places are heart-wrenching.

      When donating to Camp Fire victims, have a care because there are some non-fire related organizations called “campfire” or “camp fire” online and although I am sure they do great work, they have nothing to do with the Camp Fire evacuees and victims. This is a good resource if anyone is looking to donate directly to the Camp Fire victims:

      Thank you for reading the wildfire posts and keeping everyone affected in your hearts

    Goodness I had to read that headline three times, I thought she is firing evacuees with pizza and gift cards…

  12. Dee Kay says:

    That pic from Liam Hemsworth and the caption is profound. All that you own in this world can burn down and what’s left? LOVE. That’s the thing that can’t be taken away or destroyed, even by death. I really believe that. All we really have is love.
    (P.S. I’m aware that Hemsworth and Cyrus didn’t lose everything they own in the fire, I’m just making a point.)

  13. Miss M says:

    I dont like Lady gaga for many reasons. But I think she deserves the praise for this.
    Well done, Stefani!

  14. Loca says:

    Love how Lady Gaga always looks out for people. This was truly sweet during a devastating time.

  15. TeresaM says:

    I saw a documentary abot Gaga a while ago and she came off as a down to earth and caring woman . She is totally aware of her privileges and is such a hard worker. I was really impressed. Of course these things are edited, but you can’t hide everything.
