By On

Lady Gaga has paid tribute to her hometown of New York today in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, which has left millions in the area devastated.

The 'Born This Way' singer is currently in Puerto Rico where she is preparing for a series of shows for her tour, but her busy schedule hasn't stopped her thinking about the city where she grew up, which is recovering after the super storm hit earlier this week.

Sharing her sentiments on Twitter, Gaga wrote: "Miss you mom, dad, natali and all my friends."

"I wanna be there in the rain with you. I know its gonna be ok, but that water flooding downtown while my friends are sitting in the dark is making me sad. I love you New York.

"Its such a testament to New York that none of my friends or family members have left. not even my blind grandma in NJ."

The 26-year-old then posted a blog on her website, titled 'Hurricane Blues,' in which she recalled her old haunts from when she lived in the city before she achieved fame.

"I'm not sure where to put these feelings. I'm so sad. I feel like my entire childhood is underwater. The boardwalk in Atlantic city, my old Apts in Brooklyn and LES. All the bars and friends," Gaga wrote.

"I'm just so sad. I know it will be ok. I'm not sure why I feel this way. maybe homesickness, or maybe its easier to be a gypsy if you know your soul grows from somewhere great, and that great place protected me my whole life, now parts are destroyed. just very sad and pensive today. Thinking of everyone today."

Other celebrities to send their condolences to those affected, include X Factor USA judge Britney Spears, who wrote: "Sending love to the East Coast! Hope u all are staying safe & dry - keeping u in my prayers."

Meanwhile, Cher wrote: "Been watching hurricane! It's WORSE than I EVER imagined! My friends live down on perry street. hope they r ok? Deaths & damage breaks my heart."

American Idol host Ryan Seacrest tweeted: "I saw 2 different couples on roofs making out during the hurricane last night. Carpe diem?"

New York natives and music power couple Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz stayed safe inside and tweeted a photo of their candlelit home after losing power.

Many celebrities have been forced to cancel several appearances in New York, New Jersey and the surrounding areas, including Rita Ora and John Legend, who both expressed their frustrations on Twitter.

Meanwhile, Sean Kingston caused a slight panic earlier this week when he tweeted that there had been sightings of sharks swimming in the waters that flooded New Jersey.
