Lady Gaga Covers Variety / Talks ‘A Star Is Born,’ Oscar Performance Plans, & More

Published: Tuesday 13th Nov 2018 by Sam

If fame is an amalgamation of highs, lows, and all else in-between, Lady Gaga is riding one of the highest waves of her career to date.

‘A Star Is Born,’ her first lead role as an actress, has catapulted the 32-year-0ld’ into the stratosphere.

And she’s opening up about the film’s success in the newest issue of Variety magazine.

In a compelling interview feature, Mother Monster dished on the movie’s affect on her, taking to the stage at the Oscars, future plans, and more.

Pics and excerpts below…

On The Success Of ‘A Star Is Born’ & It’s Effect On Her:

“This has been a very transformative time for me. As an artist, there’s always a feeling of ‘Am I good enough? Am I making something honest? Am I making something true?’ There is a sort of stagnant sadness in me, wondering if I’m enough. Today I did not see that. I saw something different. I saw a clarity. I saw a truth.

I had big dreams as a child. Just give me a few more movies before you call me a (movie star) success.”

On Possibly Performing At The Oscars:

And if “Shallow” is nominated for an Oscar for best song, Gaga says she’ll perform it at the ceremony. “One hundred percent,” she says. In fact, Cooper reveals that he has plans to sing the duet live with Gaga. “We talked about that actually, because I’m such a maniac,” Cooper says. “I started texting her the whole pitch of how we should do it. So we’ll see. There might be a cool, unorthodox way we could perform it.”

On Sneaking Into The Theater To Watch ‘A Star Is Born’:

 “Yeah, I snuck in. I sat through most of it.” She left early, but not out of fear of being spotted. “I had to remove myself before the end,” she explains. “The film moves me so deeply. I feel so entrenched in the character that the second half of the film — without revealing what happens — is so emotional and tragic. I have to take myself out of it.”

On Her Plans Moving Forward:

 “I only want to win now because I want that kid who feels like me, that misfit or outcast that didn’t belong, to win. The reward for me is that this movie is a win for them.”

    I mean now Black Panther won’t get its respect on the award shows because it’s a predominantly black cast!!??‍♂️

      Don´t be ridiculous! That basic flick won´t get any important shine just like the other 100 basic Marvel flicks there are out there. Didn´t the phenomenal Moonlight win the main award and get some of the best reviews of the decade??? Yes it did. Because it is a real film. Don´t mix things. The award a flick like Black Panther can get is the box office. And it goot it. Don´t be mad.

        Why are you mad sis? A black guy did you wrong?

      • JOHNVIDAL November 13, 2018

        Hmm I´m replying to a ridiculous comment just with facts. That´s being mad? Nobodys fault if you don´t know better in cinema.

      • King B November 13, 2018

    Bish it will be her third time performing at the oscars (the previous two some of the best ever). It´s getting Celine Dion´s level of oscar demand 🙂 She has sooooo made the right choices (against all odds) these last 4 years.
