On April 18, 2020, Lady Gaga’s brainchild ‘One World: Together At Home’ event took place across all networks. Billed the next ‘Live Aid,’ the concert was not only a gift to those around the world in lockdown but a way to thank the First Responders who are putting their lives on the line daily to save ours. Lady Gaga said that this is their love letter to the world. It’s a way to say Thank You and we are one world together.
The event was not a fundraiser. It was a Thank You. Besides Lady Gaga, some of the biggest acts from around the world participated, either by performing or simply saying Thank You. Some of the acts appearing were The Rolling Stones, Stevie Wonder, Paul McCartney, Elton John, Annie Lennox, Keith Urban, Celine Dion, John Legend, Taylor Swift, Sheryl Crow, Lady Antebellum, Niall Horan, Jennifer Hudson, Maluma, Billie Ellish, Ellie Goulding, Billy Ray Cyrus, Adam Lambert, Sofi Tukker, Jess Glynn, Michael Buble, Common, Luis Fonsi, Billy Joe Armstrong, Jennifer Lopez, Hozier, Jessie J, Sam Smith, Lizzo, Eddie Vedder, Camila Cabello, Charlie Puth, Shawn Mendes, and Chris Martin.
Not everybody performed. Some, such as Michelle Obama, Laura Bush, Oprah, Ellen, LL Cool J, Pharell Williams, Laverne Cox, David & Victoria Beckham, Usher, Samuel Jackson, Michael Bloomberg, Pierce Bronson, WWE Wrestlers, and even Sesame Street muppets.
Everybody submitted a tape to be able to thank the First Responders. Almost everybody. Madonna did not participate.
During the concert, Madonna was very busy. While the stars pitched and performed for love and peace, Madonna was busy on Instagram, posing irrelevant, ugly pictures. She posted literally as the show was starting.
What was she thinking?
