In what was not some sort of American Horror Story birth and renewal ritual, Lady Gaga and her fiancé Taylor Kinney took a dive into Lake Michigan today to raise money for Special Olympics Chicago. This is the second year Gaga has joined in the event. She was joined by Al Roker, and the rest of Kinney’s castmates on Chicago Fire, as well as their equally suspiciously good-looking counterparts on Chicago P.D. and Chicago Med. According to the Chicago Tribune, Gaga and the about 6000 other participants raised $1.5 million for the charity.
“You gotta feel pain to feel empathy,” Lady Gaga told the Tribune.
Stars, they’re just like us — only much colder.
Here is a video of Lady Gaga and Al Roker making small talk before the event. It is very awkward.
Have a nice day.
