Lady Gaga, who is currently in Tokyo promoting Joanne, held a press conference during which she spoke about the new album, the meaning behind its lyrics, and her love for her Japanese fans.
"As soon as I got to the hotel last night, I went to my room with the Haus of Gaga, my creative team," Gaga told the press of her visit to Japan. "We put together all of my performances and outfits for the week and talked about all the things we wanted to do here in Tokyo. The most important thing is that we wanted to spread the message of love and positivity to everyone in Japan. So I haven't gotten to go out yet and have any recreational fun but I'm here to do the thing that I love the most which is to spread love."
Gaga cried at the end of the event after receiving a pink Japanese kimono as a gift from Universal Music Japan. "I just to say thank you to Universal for always supporting me," the singer-songwriter said. "And thank you to all of the people in Japan. For my album Joanne to be number one for a second week is a huge honor for me and my family. This name, Joanne, is the single most important name that I can remember hearing growing up. For it to reverberating through the homes of so many people in Japan means the world to me."
