Video of Lady Gaga helping a fallen photographer at Oscars goes viral

Not only did Lady Gaga perform at the 2023 Oscars, she also showed off her talents on the red carpet. As the video went viral, Gaga was walking on the champagne-colored carpet at the Oscars on March 12 when a photographer walked past her and fell to the ground, landing on her back with a loud thud. The Oscar winner's first reaction upon hearing the commotion was to immediately turn around - wearing a floor-length Versace gown and heels - and run to the aid of the strange man, who thankfully was okay and stood up.

In responses to the video posted on Twitter, fans praised Gaga's kindness and instant response to helping others, with one noting that she has "true human dignity" and another even calling her the "Mother Teresa of music" ". Another tweet noted that Gaga was the only one who went out of her way to help photographers. Another fan wrote: "Mind you she doesn't even think about this - it's her instinct to help him and she's just so sweet and kind." Even Dove's Twitter account (yes, the soap brand) Also couldn't help but gush about Gaga, replying with happy crying and heart emojis.

This isn't the first time Gaga has been praised for her kindness. Gaga made headlines at the 2022 Academy Awards when she presented the Best Picture award alongside Liza Minnelli, who remained in a wheelchair in a rare public appearance . The audience praised her for her kindness toward the legendary star, allowing Minnelli to stand aside and let her soak in the standing ovation, then gently guide her as they performed. Gaga even took to the microphone to quietly assure her, "I got you," to which she responded, "I know, thank you."

Just a week later, at the 2022 Grammy Awards, Gaga got down on the floor to help SZA when the train of her dress got caught on her crutches, before she walked on stage to accept her Grammy while carrying the train. What made the moment even sweeter was that SZA beat out Gaga for the award, winning for "Kiss Me More," her collaboration with Doja Cat, over Gaga's duet with Tony Bennett, "I Get a Kick Out of You." Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, but it didn't. That doesn't make a dent in the 13-time Grammy winner.

Perhaps the red carpet moment influenced Gaga's comments ahead of her surprise last-minute Oscars appearance. The singer took over as host to introduce her performance of "Hold My Hand," which was nominated for Best Original Song from Top Gun: Maverick , explaining the song's inspiration and alluding to kindness. "We need a lot of love to get through this life, and we all need heroes sometimes," she said. “There are heroes all around us, in obscure places, but you may find that you can be your own hero even if you feel broken inside.”
