As rumored, Lady Gaga christened the new classic Apple logo-themed stage in the center of Apple Park with a concert, celebrating not just the opening of the headquarters, but what founder Steve Jobs did for the arts and the world.
After speculation on Friday that the performer was on her way to Apple Park, Lady Gaga performed an abbreviated version of her “Enigma” show for 15,000 Apple employees. Early in the show, she dedicated her song “Million Reasons” to founder Steve Jobs.
“If we could all, 15 thousand of us for one minute, that I will time, I would like silence, in honor of your late husband. I think it takes a true genius like Steve Jobs to be able to make so many people talk and communicate, and also, to leave us speechless,” Gaga said to Jobs’ widow, Laurene Powell-Jobs. “Laurene, you do so much for the world, with the Emerson Collective and so much more that you do. You help people, you’re kind. This is the most important thing in the universe, kindness. This is what heals the whole world. So I hope you take this as a true sincere kind gesture. I would not only like to dedicate this to your late husband, but to you for carrying on his legacy.”
Her thanks weren’t just for Jobs. She also had kind words for Beats One host Zane Lowe.
“I’d also like to say thanks to Zane Lowe, because you know, he’s always really encouraged me to do whatever the fuck I want. So I’m gonna ask you something, I actually think have to go through a different company and you guys have to approve it,” asked Gaga. “But I would like, if you know anybody, an emoji that says ‘Be Kind’. So I’m going to get to work on that.”
