On Wednesday, Jimmy Fallon hosted yet another at-home edition of ‘The Tonight Show’ and scheduled to have Lady Gaga on video call for an interview. But, the interview was ‘awkwardly’ cut short as Gaga seemed to be flustered for an unknown reason and even asked Fallon if he could ‘call[her] on Friday’.

Fallon did it his best to keep the show alive by carrying on the conversation as best that he could, but eventually had to cut the interview short with Gaga hanging up on him.

After connecting with Gaga for the video phone interview she said, “I can't, Jimmy. I can't talk right now. I'm really sorry, it's just like a really weird time.”

Fallon then turned his phone towards the camera so the viewers could see that he was actually on call with Gaga who then responded by saying, “I can't see you. Am I on TV?”

Fallon then tried to steer the conversation towards her announcing something ‘really big’ to where Gaga responded, “I can't tell you everything right now, because I'm still ironing out the details. I have a lot of phone calls to make.”

Gaga seemed to be flustered and she asked if she could reschedule the interview on Friday and right before hanging up she was seen even throwing paper in the air.

Later in the show Gaga called Fallon back and asked the reschedule the interview again on Monday instead of Friday.

“So I guess it's Monday,“ Fallon said. “Monday is when we'll find out the big news from Lady Gaga.”

There was obvious frustration on Fallon’s end, but somehow it created a higher anticipation as to what her ‘big’ reveal is on Monday.

But, the ‘big’ news that Lady Gaga was planning to unveil might have to do with the fact that she has been reported to have teamed up with Global Citizen to put together a live-stream concert raising over $35 million for the fight against the spread of the coronavirus.

The concert is scheduled to feature Sir. Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder and Billie Eilish.

Gaga said on Monday that the money was raised in seven days and will benefit The World Health Organization.

Gaga announced "One World: Together At Home," a televised event aimed at fighting the coronavirus that is scheduled to air on April 18 at 8 p.m. (EST) on ABC, NBC, CBS, iHeartMedia and Bell Media networks.

"I would like to reiterate our deep gratitude to the medical community. My heart is very achy and warm for those who are ER doctors as well as nurses who are sleeping in cars to make sure they don't infect their families or their patients. What you are doing is putting yourself in harm's way to help the world and we all salute you," Gaga said during a news conference on Monday.

"What's very important is three things happening for all of us. That we celebrate and we highlight the singular kind global community that is arising right now. Two, we want to highlight the gravity of this historical, unprecedented cultural movement. And three, we want to celebrate and encourage the power of the human spirit. Put your wallets away ... and sit back and enjoy the show you all deserve." she said.

The multi-hour TV special, which will also stream live on YouTube, Apple, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and more platforms, will include appearances by Elton John, David Beckham, John Legend, Eddie Vedder, Kerry Washington, Coldplay's Chris Martin, Lizzo, J Balvin, Andrea Bocelli and Maluma. Idris Elba and his wife, Sabrina Elba, who both tested posted for coronavirus, will also take part in the special.
