She watched the towers fall. She had a rooftop seat and an unparalleled view of the madness.
Lady Gaga was 15 at the time, and at school in Manhattan when a bright blue day in New York City was scarred with ash as hijackers flew planes into the World Trade Center towers, which fell, in the worst terrorist attack on the United States in history. From the top of her school, on the rooftop playground which she and her girlfriends broke into, Gaga had a birds eye view – a front row seat – of history and infamy.
For what she says is the first time ever, Gaga talks about that day, about her mother, who was out of contact with her family for hours on end, and on what she, as a New Yorker thinks about the capture and killing of Osama Bin Laden, the Al-Qaeda cleric behind the attacks.
Gaga spoke with American radio presenter Toby Knapp yesterday in an interview to promote the release of her video, Judas, and her HBO special.
She described the gray faces of the ash-covered workers from Wall Street she saw on the streets. She talked about the fear for her mother she felt – not knowing where she was as so many were out of contact due to the loss of telecommunications equipment and cellular antennas at the top of the Twin Towers. And she shares her deep thoughts about the killing of Bin Laden.
“This was one of the most amazing conversations I’ve ever had… ever,” American radio presenter Toby Knapp said on his program this afternoon.
