Leak "Tea"!" Do you think we might ever be able hear those someday, the right way, not by hacks? Do we have to wait till she's 60 and it's a retrospective? DJWS: You know, I actually don't know. That's all like, business stuff. You know what I mean? Obviously, I would love to play that stuff. I would love everybody to have what they wanted. It is not my ambition to keep things to myself. It must be so complex. DJWS: Yeah! We worked on that ****. I probably have pieces to 400 songs. And some of them are, really good! They just weren't the right time. I don't know, man... It's not up to me. If it were up to me, everybody could come to my house right now, and we could have a big barbecue, and I'd play you all the songs and everybody would be... whatever! But it's a business. The Interview: https://gagadaily.com/djws
  3. In an unprecedented show of solidarity, some 150 artists and executives, including Paul McCartney, Don Henley, Carole King, Katy Perry, Pink, Sia and hitmaker Max Martin, have signed a letter addressed to the board members of Liberty Media, corporate parent to SiriusXM. At issue: The satellite radio giant’s opposition to Music Modernization Act, which is thisclose to passing in the Senate. Specifically: SiriusXM has raised objections to portions of the bill, which aims to protect recordings released before 1972 from falling out of copyright protection, including the exclusion of terrestrial radio from mandatory payouts to rights holders. Says attorney Dina LaPolt, one of several advocates working on behalf of the MMA (as an attorney-advisor to SONA, or Songwriters of North America), in a statement to Variety: “As we continue to move from a product based business to a service based business, bringing the antiquated copyright act into the digital realm, SiriusXM’s unwillingness to support songwriters and artists is complete travesty given that every other group in the music industry has endorsed the bill. This shows their disgusting corporate greed at the expense of America’s greatest treasures..…. our legacy artists.” Source and full article: https://variety.com/2018/music/news/katy-perry-pink-max-martin-artist-letter-siriusxm-boycott-music-modernization-act-1202944141/
  4. Having now conquered both the music and film worlds, Lady Gaga is on her way to becoming a beauty businesswoman too. Here's what we know about the line so far (it's not a lot, but stay tuned): The list of potential product types is extensive (we stopped counting at 70), and includes things like cleansers, masks, oils, and all the colour cosmetics you could think of.
  5. After months long of predictions, where both Bradley and Gaga first started out on the prediction lists outside of top 5, they have climbed their way into top 5. They have gone up and down (well mostly up) for weeks, but were never predicted to win the Oscar. Today, however both leads of A Star Is Born have surpassed all their competitors in Best Actor and Best Actress, when Lady Gaga dethroned Glenn Close, who has been sitting on top of that prediction list for months, in her first major movie role. You heard it right, Gaga dethroned six-time Oscar nominee, acting veteran Glenn Close for Best Actress. Both actresses have 17 predictions for a nomination, and 7 predictions for a win. However, most of the experts placing Glenn on top have not updated their predictions for a while, meaning that Gaga has the latest predictions for a win, and perhaps the reason she was placed at #1 is because her 'nomination predictions' are at higher positions (i.e #2 rather than #5). Things don't just stop there. Bradley has surpassed Best Actor contenders like Ryan Gosling, Christian Bale and Rami Malek and now sits at #1, with 17 predictions for a nomination and 4 for a win. In case you aren't satisfied, A Star Is Born now leads the Best Picture race with 7 predictions for a win, the most of all movies in contention. However it sits at #2 because Roma has 19 predictions for a nomination, while A Star Is Born has 18 of it. It's official, Lady Gaga has entered the Best Actress race for a WIN. https://www.goldderby.com/odds/expert-odds/oscars-nominations-2019/
  6. A FAILED five-year relationship, plunging record sales and repeatedly axed tour dates amid health fears. It was only a few months ago that Lady Gaga’s once- glittering showbiz career seemed to be all but over. But a remarkable turnaround means she is now the experts’ hot tip for a Best Actress Oscar as her spluttering career takes off again in a whole new direction — Hollywood. Gaga, 32, was thrown a lifeline when she was cast as lead character Ally in Bradley Cooper’s film directing debut A Star Is Born — about an aspiring singer who is discovered by an ageing music superstar. And it is quickly surpassing all expectations, with critics tipping it to sweep the board at next year’s awards season. The film, in cinemas from October 5, is the third remake of the 1937 original — after Judy Garland in 1954 and Barbra Streisand in 1976 — and looks set to be the ­biggest yet. But just two years ago it was a very different story for Gaga. The public had seemingly lost interest in the woman who had so recently been pop’s biggest, most exciting star, with flamboyant ­outfits and chart-topping hits. Gaga’s own disillusionment with fame dates from earlier. Speaking in 2015, she admitted she was ­devastated with how her career had panned out and wanted to quit music altogether. read more : https://www.thesun.co.uk/tvandshowbiz/7253933/lady-gaga-a-star-is-born-career-revival/
  7. As a child attending an all-girls Roman Catholic school in New York, Lady Gaga was reportedly teased for being “too provocative or too eccentric.” Yet today, 10 years since she burst onto the scene with her debut album, The Fame, the 32-year-old artist’s wild creativity and offbeat flair continue to drive her unstoppable ventures into music, fashion, philanthropy and acting. Now, she’s set to expand her legacy by making her feature film acting debut in the highly anticipated remake of A Star Is Born, directed by and co-starring Bradley Cooper. By the next year, her debut electric pop album, The Fame, and its singles “Just Dance” and “Poker Face,” firmly cemented Lady Gaga’s arrival on the music scene. Soon, she was off on tour with New Kids on the Block, opening for the group on select dates of their comeback tour. She also appeared on the boy band’s album The Block, singing on “Big Girl Now” and co-writing “Full Service.” As Gaga’s success continued to grow, The Fame was reissued in 2009 as The Fame Monster, a double LP featuring “Bad Romance,” “Telephone” and “Alejandro.” She reflected on her exploration of fame during a 2011 interview with NME. “There’s a lot of people who want to see me fail,” she said. “The minute they see something to shoot at, they shoot, and the bigger I become, the bigger target I am. I think back in those times the internet and the press and the paparazzi were not privy to the demise of the celebrity and now they are.” She has also made an unarguably strong impact with her outlandish style. Having named Cher, Madonna, Alexander McQueen and Donatella Versace as her fashion influences, Gaga’s much-talked-about looks have proven the highlight of countless awards shows and red carpets, from the raw beef dress and accessories she wore to the 2010 MTV Video Music awards to the epic jacket made of Kermit the Frog dolls she donned during a German television interview in 2009. As guest editor for V fashion magazine’s 99th issue in 2016, she even nabbed the Editor of the Year award at the Fashion Los Angeles Awards. talent won!

  9. Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's highly-anticipated movie A Star Is Born has made its debut at the 75th Venice Film Festival and critics are loving it. The remake of the 1937 film has earned rave reviews following its premiere at the iconic festival on Friday. On review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, A Star Is Born holds a 93% approval rating. On Metacritic, the movie has an average score of 89 out of 100, indicating "universal acclaim." The Guardian, 5 out of 5 stars: Cooper directs and co-stars in this outrageously watchable and colossally enjoyable new version, supercharged with dilithium crystals of pure melodrama. He appears opposite a sensationally good Lady Gaga, whose ability to be part ordinary person, part extraterrestrial celebrity empress functions at the highest level at all times.—Peter Bradshaw The Telegraph, 5 out of 5 stars: Gaga's big final number, performed almost entirely in a single-take close-up, gives the film the knee-weakening send-off it earns. This is a musical for lovers and loathers of the genre alike: deluxe studio entertainment like they used to make.—Robbie Collin Variety, positive: Lady Gaga, in her fetching and accomplished movie-star debut, as Ally, an ingenuous, fresh-faced singer-songwriter who becomes his lover and stage partner before rocketing on her own into the new pop stratosphere. Cooper directed the movie himself, working from a script he co-wrote with Eric Roth and Will Fetters, and to say that he does a good job would be to understate his accomplishment.—Owen Gleiberman The Wrap, positive: Cooper and Lady Gaga are dynamite together; this is a story that lives and dies by the central relationship and the instant chemistry that must blossom between them, and these two have it in spades. The musical numbers take immediately catchy songs and present them in an electrifying way.—Alonso Duralde TIME, positive: A Star Is Born is just on the right side of tasteful, which is to say it’s slightly on the wrong side: It could stand to be more nutso in its expression of grand human emotions and dismal human failures. But it works anyway: You come away feeling something for these people, flawed individuals who are trying to hold their cracked pieces of self together—or to mend the cracks of those they love.—Stephanie Zacharek US Weekly, 3 out of 4 stars: A Star Is Born tries very, very hard to be the most emotional movie of 2018. I’m not convinced it wins on that front, but I can say it gets the prize for most hysterical melodrama. Take it as a compliment.—Mara Reinstein Entertainment Weekly, B+: Gaga's serious-actress transformation for her first major film role will undoubtedly lead the conversation, and she deserves praise for her restrained, human-scale performance as a singer whose real-girl vulnerability feels miles away from the glittery meat-dress delirium of her own stage persona.—Leah Greenblatt A Star Is Born is due out in theatres on October 5th, 2018.

  12. LA Times recently interviewed Gaga ahead of the Venice Film Featival. Includes quotes from Bradley and Gagas acting coach. Full article and interview below. “What’s different from Ally than me is that when I wanted to become a singer, I hit the concrete running,” she says. “I was dragging my piano from dive bar to dive bar to play music. I was calling people, faking being my own manager to get gigs. I really believed in myself that I could do this and that I wasn’t going to stop until I made it. ...The truth is, when we meet Ally, she’s given up on herself. And that’s very different from me. I just wasn’t overwhelmed by the odds. The truth is, if we were not sitting here today and I hadn’t sold as many records as I have, I’d still be in a bar somewhere playing the piano and singing. It’s just who I want to be.” http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/movies/la-ca-mn-sneaks-lady-gaga-star-is-born-20180830-story.html

  17. Talkhouse describes it as an "instant classic"! "The undeniable standout is Lady Gaga, whose performance here goes far beyond what we typically think of as great acting and moves into the territory of, say, Gena Rowlands in A Woman Under the Influence. The role requires her to play every note on the emotional scale from the depths of despair to the joyous exuberance, and Gaga is flawless in every scene. Her work proves the cliché about the specific becoming universal, as she plays each moment in surprising, unique ways and makes bold choices no other actress would conceive of, yet gives each of those moments a profound and affecting sense of recognition for the audience – every triumph and every heartbreak feels utterly honest and relatable, and it all builds to one of the most emotionally shattering finales I’ve ever encountered in a movie" read more: https://www.talkhouse.com/bradley-coopers-triumphant-a-star-is-born-is-an-instant-classic/#.W4PZE_epaPF.twitter this movie is gonna fucking slay
