Barbra Streisand Slams Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper’s Remake Of ‘A Star Is Born,’ Says It Was “The Wrong Idea”

Published: Monday 16th Aug 2021 by Ryan

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper‘s ‘A Star Is Born’ may have found love from critics and fans alike; however, Barbra Streisand is not one of them.

During her appearance on the Australian talk show ‘The Sunday Project,’ the GRAMMY-winner slammed the remake and went as far as to say it was “the wrong idea.”

Her words below…

“At first, when I heard it was going to be done again, it was supposed to be Will Smith and Beyoncé, and I thought, that’s interesting. Really make it different again, different kind of music, integrated actors, I thought that was a great idea.”

“So, I was surprised when I saw how alike it was to the version that I did in 1976.”

Babs then went on to say she “thought it was the wrong idea,” but that she “can’t argue with success” after the project earned Mother Monster her first Academy Award for her song ‘Shallow.’

Later on, she continued by saying:

“I don’t care so much about success as I do originality.”

During the films promotional interviews, both Gaga and Cooper have gone on record with Entertainment Weekly praising Streisand after she visited the set.

It is worth noting that Streisand previously did shower the film with praise, saying:

“Of course I’ve seen it. I loved it. I think it’s wonderful. She’s wonderful.”

    But Bey can’t emote, Babs. No more than Mezzo Mini Madonna can.

    Oooop! Love to see a legend use her legendary privilege to spill the tea! I get what she’s saying but I don’t think Clint Eastwood as a director would’ve put the “originality” spin she was hoping for other than casting an interracial couple (never heard of Will taking the role before, it was Bradley and Beyoncé from what we’ve heard publicly)

    Is this the movie that Aaliyah suppose to had been in?🤔

      Or you might be thinking of “Some Kind of Blue”. Aaliyah said she was going to play a jazz musician’s daughter who falls in love with a white man during a time it wasn’t accepted.

      • celetia August 16, 2021

        it still not accepted now because black people hate when you get with a white man

    Will and Beyonce? The picture in my mind… horrible.

  5. Unnatural August 16, 2021

    She loved it because they did a good job. Shes dragging it because it lacked originality. It was too similar to the one she did. Whereas Beyonce and Will Smith being black rap and rnb stars wouldve put a different spin on a story done several times already. All by white actors.

    • celetia August 16, 2021

      so ghetto it up is your answer then

    • Marlo August 16, 2021

    THE QUEEN had 2 major projects in the works that fell through the table

    The WII game (titled the B Experience or something like that) in 2009


    They most likely didn’t want to pay the QUEEN the $Millions she requested for the time spent working on said projects

    The Queen is such a Boss that The Queen Quit working on the Wii game while it was still in the making

    As for STAR IS BORN

    *Bey already played a Ho€ In Carmen

    *A SUPER HERO in Austin Powers

    * A Jewel Thief in The Pink Panther

    *An Autistic singer in Dream girls

    *A Homeless Prostitute in Cadilac Records

    *And even played a Murderer in Obsessed

    WHY playing an old SINGER Again?

    I admit it would have been nice to see the Queen finally win that Oscar tho. I was sure the Queen would atleast get a nomination for The Lion King

    • Paulo August 16, 2021

      love Spirit the song but I get why it wasn’t awarded… the movie didn’t incorporate it into the plot properly, it felt very much like a careless inclusion. if Jon Favreau had actually used more of The Gift’s music like Bigger then her chances would’ve been way bigger imho

  10. stan August 16, 2021

    i respect beyonce, but an actor she is not.

  11. Truth August 16, 2021

    Out of context. Babs simply wanted diversity. Love her.
