Lady Gaga, joined by the US Ambassador, gave a press conference in Tokyo earlier today to talk about her upcoming tsunami benefit concert in the city, as well as remind everyone that its safe to visit the country. “I would like to use my position here today and all week long to run around Tokyo enjoy the beautiful city and kiss all the beautiful little monsters and scream at the top of my lungs that everyone should come visit this beautiful place.” Because nothing says “nuclear radiation isn’t an issue” like a woman with neon green hair talking about “little monsters.”
If that wasn’t ironic enough, a 6.7-magnitude earthquake actually hit the area earlier today, though no major injuries or damages have been reported. Gaga showed off a cup at the conference reading “Pray For Japan” in Japanese, which she will auction to raise funds for the area. See photos of her press conference in the galley below.
