Lady Gaga Gets Emotional During Charity Event in Tokyo (PHOTOS)
Lady Gaga continued her fundraising efforts this week, heading to Tokyo to urge tourists to return to Japan again after it suffered a devastating earthquake and tsunami in March. Wearing an aquamarine wig, all-black feathery outfit and her sky-high platforms, the "Edge of Glory" singer broke down as she spoke about her love for the country.
"I am always so inspired when I come to Japan, inspired by the spirit, the passion, the love, the absolutely infectious joy of Tokyo," she said during a news conference in Tokyo. "I would like to use my position here today and all week long to run around Tokyo and enjoy the beautiful city, and kiss all the beautiful little monsters and scream at the top of my lungs that everyone should visit this beautiful place."
During the conference, Gaga sipped from a tea cup reading "Prayers for Japan." The cup will be put up for auction and the proceeds given to charity. The singer has been active in for victims of the March 11 disasters, contributing a song to a charity album and a message for a fund-raising T-shirt that goes on sale later this week.
The "Judas" singer is in town for the MTV Video Music Awards Japan, which will air Saturday. She arrived at Narita International Airport in Japan on Tuesday -- dressed entirely in green -- as she waved to fans and cameras.
