As a proud New Yorker, Lady Gaga was particularly concerned about the residents of the Big Apple during Hurricane Sandy, whose devastation has left several dead and millions without power. The singer, who's currently on tour, wrote on Twitter, "i know its gonna be ok, but that water flooding downtown while my friends are sitting in the dark is making me sad. i love you new york."
She then added, directly addressing her parents and sister in New York, "miss you mom, dad, natali and all my friends. :( i wanna be there in the rain with you. its such a testament to New York that none of my friends or family members have left. not even my blind grandma in NJ."
To add some levity to the grave situation, Gaga then tweeted, "i bet with all that wind and rain Gray's Papaya is still open." Grey's Papaya is a legendary New York eatery famous for its extremely cheap, yet tasty, hot dogs. Gaga added the hash tags " #2DOGSWITHEVERYTHING #KETCHUPANDMUSTARD" to make her point.
Gaga then made her final joke of the night, tweeting, " I'm never watching Grease again #SandySucks." Sandy is, of course, the name of the main female character in the movie Grease, played by Olivia Newton-John .
