Lady Gaga was one of many celebrities forced to evacuate their homes due to the California wildfires, and she’s doing what she can to bring a smile to the faces of others who had to leave everything and move to safety.
The singer stopped by a Red Cross shelter at Pacific Palisades High School on Sunday, and spoke to folks there, telling them, “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 spent about 90 minutes at the shelter giving out gift cards and even singing. She also advised people to talk to mental health counselors at the shelter, noting, “share your stories and talk to each other during this time,” adding, "Let's keep the faith, together."

John Mayer Reflects On Two-Years Of Sobriety
John Mayer is celebrating two years sober and reveals that he decided to get clean after making “a fool” of himself at Drake’s 30th birthday party, which resulted in a six-day hangover.
"That's how big the hangover was,” he tells “Complex” magazine. “I looked out the window and I went, ‘OK, John, what percentage of your potential would you like to have? Because if you say you’d like 60, and you’d like to spend the other 40 having fun, that’s fine." He adds, “But what percentage of what is available to you would you like to make happen? There’s no wrong answer. What is it?’ I went, ‘100.’”
As for advice for other people, John notes that getting sober is “the most personal thing to people.” He adds, “Try talking to someone else about drinking. Try talking to someone else about how you haven’t had a drink in two years and watch what happens to them,” noting, “It is just so particular to your own spirit and psychology that it's almost impossible to develop one way of explaining it to someone else.”
