“I live with [my stylist] Brad Goreski and [his husband] Gary Janetti now,” she added. “Honestly, thank God for this event this morning because I got up at 5:30 and everyone came to the house. And they’re like, ‘We need to leave.’ So I threw my cat in the bag and left and got ready at Brad’s, thank God.”

“Everything’s OK,” she continued as she shared that her home was okay. “There’s so much going on in our world right now. You have to kind of just take the things that mean the most to you and be OK to roll with whatever. As long as I have my cat, I literally don’t care about anything else. Nothing else matters. So, that was it. I’m shaking still.”

Lionel Richie shared on Twitter that he was canceling his show Wednesday night in Las Vegas to help his family evacuate their home and get to a safe location.

“Due to the devastating California Wildfires, and helping family evacuate to a safer place, I unfortunately have to cancel my show tonight. I look forward to returning to the stage this weekend and performing for my fans,” Richie tweeted.

Ariana Grande’s mom shared on social media that she also had to leave her home due to the fire.

“For the first time in my life I have had to evacuate my home… my heart is breaking for all the Californians so sadly affected by the fires,” Joan Grande tweeted.

Her brother later shared that the family was safe and praised the Los Angeles Fire Department for notifying them of the “evacuation so early and efficiently.”
