Piers Morgan apologises to Lady Gaga for ‘cure’ jibe

Piers Morgan has issued an apology to Lady Gaga after the fundraising concert One World: Together At Home raised millions for the fight against coronavirus.

The global fundraising concert saw a host of phenomenally successful artists perform live from their homes as it was broadcast all over the world.

Lady Gaga helped to curate the concert with the World Health Organization and Global Citizen which has gone on to raise hundreds of millions of pounds for the fight against the deadly virus, while also supporting frontline staff.

Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan was initially sceptical of the concert and what it could achieve.

On 6 April, after hearing that Lady Gaga would be a special guest at the World Health Organisation's Covid-19 press conference, he tweeted: "Why? Has she found a cure? Otherwise, we don't need a b****y singer there."

Upon seeing the success of the show, the outspoken journalist issued an apology to Lady Gaga.

On Twitter, he said: "I owe you an apology @ladygaga – this was a great initiative that raised a fortune, entertained people, & will help save lives. It was also a perfect illustration of a major star using their profile properly in this crisis. Congrats & sorry for originally questioning it."

Fellow social media users heaped praise on the presenter for apologising.
