COVID-19, the new novel coronavirus, might be bringing a sense of concern to many across the globe, but the "grim situation" recently experienced a bit of levity from an unexpected source.

On March 1, a live-streamed regional council meeting was held to discuss the spread of coronavirus in Italy. During the broadcast, officials shared the most recent information about the ongoing outbreak as almost 40,000 viewers tuned in via Facebook Live.

However, part of Lady Gaga's new single, "Stupid Love," started playing in the middle of the event, which seemingly caught everyone there off guard.

After the unexpected interruption, the pop star herself responded on Twitter, saying "and this is why I make music." Her tweet can be seen below.

"Stupid Love," which was released on Feb. 28 and will appear on her upcoming album, "Chromatica," marks Gaga's return to music. The new song follows the musician's 2016 album, "Joanne," which produced the singles "Million Reasons," "Perfect Illusion," and others.

The debut of Lady Gaga's new song was also accompanied by a music video on Feb. 28, which was shot entirely on an iPhone 11 Pro. Following the release of the clip, director Daniel Askill spoke to Variety and shared his thoughts about Gaga wanting to work in that way.

"Obviously, this is so smart on behalf of both Gaga and Apple to just lean into the blurring of that line — and just focus on creating a great piece of content that can bridge the gap between the two," he said, adding, "What was amazing is that no one was telling everyone what to do — like sometimes happens when you’re doing commercials."

Aside from the aforementioned humorous moment, the "Bad Romance" singer has continued to stay busy over the past year. Not only did she announce in 2019 that she had been working on a new makeup line called Haus Laboratories, but rumors have also surfaced that she may have also quietly worked on another movie with Bradley Cooper. Additionally, she also worked with Prince William on a special initiative.
