Lady Gaga goes green for Japan charity show

It’s not easy being green, as Kermit the Frog once said. That does not, however, apply to Lady Gaga, who arrived in Japan dressed in green from head to toe, only days after appearing bald and then blue-haired.

“This is one hard-working style chameleon,” The Hollywood Reporter writes. But this time it is for a good cause.

Lady Gaga landed in Tokyo on Tuesday to take part in a charity music event for the benefit of the March natural disasters’ victims.

About 200 fans and 50 journalists waited for her in the airport. The artist waved her left arm with a wristband showing the “Pray for Japan” message in Japanese and English.

The MTV Video Music Aid Japan show will take place on Saturday at a convention hall in Chiba, near Tokyo. It will be broadcasted live on television in Japan, South Korea, China and Southeast Asia. Funds raised at the event will go to the Japanese Red Cross.

According to the Kyodo news agency, Lady Gaga has already donated $3 million to people in disaster zones, including money from sales of the wristband and personal contributions. [The Hollywood Reporter, AFP] Photo by TJ Sengel
