Miley Cyrus Loses Home; Lady Gaga Visits Victims Of The Cali Wildfires
Lady Gaga was evacuated from her Malibu home amid the raging Woolsey fire, but she still made time to give back to other displaced residents in need.
The singer showed up at a Red Cross shelter at Pacific Palisades High School Sunday evening to lift the spirits of fellow evacuees. In a video obtained by TMZ, Gaga tells the crowd, “I extend my love. I know we do not know each other, but I love you. This is an emergency, but you are not alone.”
She encourages everyone to take advantage of the mental health counselors on site and to share their stories. “Let’s keep the faith, together,” she says.
Gaga reportedly spent about 90 minutes at the shelter, taking photos, handing out gift cards and even singing to a 98-year-old woman who had been evacuated. So far, Gaga’s home has survived the blaze.

“Completely devestated by the fires affecting my community. I am one of the lucky ones. My animals and LOVE OF MY LIFE made it out safely & that’s all that matters right now,” she wrote.
“My house no longer stands but the memories shared with family & friends stand strong. I am grateful for all I have left. Sending so much love and gratitude to the firefighters and LA country Sheriff’s department! If you are interested in getting involved see next tweet…. Donate $ , Time , Supplies I love you more than ever , Miley.”
The deadly wildfires ripping through California have forced hundreds of thousands of residents to evacuate, including some celebrities whose homes have been lost to the blazes. At least 31 people have died in the fires: 29 in the Camp fire and two in the Woolsey fire. Some 228 people are unaccounted for.
Neil Young, Robin Thicke and Gerard Butler were also among those whose houses were ravaged by the Woolsey fire raging north of Los Angeles in Southern California.
Butler posted a photo on Twitter of the charred remains of his Malibu home and thanked firefighters for their courage.
Thicke posted a statement on Instagram thanking firefighters and volunteers who “risked their lives trying to save our home.”
