Lady GaGa Shares September 11 Memories


Lady GaGa
Lady GaGa has recalled the 10 agonising hours she spent waiting to contact her mother after the World Trade Center came crashing down on September 11, 2001.


Speaking publicly about the tragedy for the first time, the New York-born star, Lady GaGa has told a U.S. radio station how, as a 15-year-old girl, she climbed on the roof of her high school in the Upper East Side to watch the Twin Towers fall after two airplanes flew into them.

She walked home from school with her dad Joseph and waited desperately to hear from her mum Cynthia, who worked across the street from the World Trade Center.

Lady GaGa admits she feared the worst for her mum, who was out of contact for 10 hours when phone lines went down.

The pop star tells radio host Toby Knapp, "The whole city was covered in ashes."

She also shared the mixed emotions she felt after learning about the death of terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden at the weekend.

GaGa explains, "It's a difficult thing - nobody wants to celebrate anyone's death. But I know it was something that meant a lot to the people of New York, especially those who lost (the) lives (of loved ones) that day."

Reports that bin Laden had been gunned down in Pakistan emerged on Sunday and GaGa insists it was "an historical moment in the fight against hatred".

The singer's interview is due to air on Friday on Washington, D.C.'s Hot 99.5.
