After what could only described as an 'awkward' interview between singer Lady Gaga and 'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon last week, it appears that Gaga is looking to make amends for abruptly ending the segment and behaving the way she did during it.

The pop star returned to speak to Fallon on Monday to issue an apology and clarify the points she attempted to make in her last segment, which were in relation to her humanitarian efforts during the COVID-19 outbreak.

"I'm so sorry. We weren't quite ready yet, and I really appreciate you being so nice about it, and thank you. I love you, I love your viewers, and everyone at home watching. I just wish everybody well," Gaga led off her touching apology to Fallon and viewers around the globe.

Fallon candidly responded to her apology with, "We love you all too and it turned out to be really kind of a fun bit for us and got a lot of people talking and a lot of people excited about what we're about to discuss tonight."

The singer continued to say, "I have always believed in kindness and I think that what's so true about times like now is that there is financial currency, right? But then there's kindness currency and they're both equally as important."

"I think there's a lot of people that are at home right now that are wondering how they can help, and they feel like they can't, and they don't know how to. And one of the ways that you can is to be kind."

"This is a catastrophe, and in a time of catastrophe, kindness is the most important thing. We must be compassionate to each other," Gaga continued to say before adding that "self awareness is also fundamental. While you're being kind and making sure that you know what you have and what you don't, [it's important] that you take those moments to have gratitude."

Gaga's humanitarian efforts since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic have been highly documented, with the artist herself sharing facets of her work with fans online.

The singer then revealed that her and Global Citizen, an advocacy organization working hard during the pandemic, have raised $35 million to aid in relief for affected individuals during this trying time.

"I mean, come on all three of you agreed to join forces for a good cause. I'm so happy [that] NBC, CBS and ABC, everybody's working together," Gaga said to Fallon in reference to him, Stephen Colbert, and Jimmy Kimmel all coming together from their respective networks to work together.

"We'll have artists. We will have lots of different people, we'll have athletes. We're also going to have Sesame Street. We're going to have amazing hosts and actors and the truth is that we're also going to do a lot of other things that are going to be different and exciting and this is what I really want to do with the show," the singer concluded.
