    25:40 This is a awesome interpretation about the mind's reaction related to trauma and the reality we all are living. As she said it is heartbreaking.

    Killer movie. Bradley Cooper is something amazing. She was really good too and I was surprised I enjoyed her singing when given a good song to sing. Definitely the best quality film I've seen in many years

    Stephen is touching new heights. First he cancels Roger Waters because he wants to "speak". Now he props this surrogate of a human being. Good Job, Stephen. Good Job.

    I was going to say that Gaga could maybe meditate instead of drinking wine if she wanted to. Obviously so could anyone, but a very wise man once said to me that meditation was much better than substances. Once in a while though of course, a glass of wine could be, I understand, quite enjoyable perhaps with a meal for instance. www.rael.org Peace and love

    I love Lady Gaga , but I wish her hair and dress would reinforce her genuine nature, not her theatrical being.

  • Tastes SEOUL Good

    I don't think even Lady Gaga knows the limits of her talents and intelligence. As long as we have people like her in the world, the USA will be OK. Such an amazing human being. I'm excited to see what she goes on to do in the future years.

  • international_gypsy

    Honestly when I first heard about this movie, I thought it was a remake of "A Star is Born" originally with Judy Garland and James Mason....I didn't even know Barbra Streisand played in another version.

    The movie is fantastic and Gaga is spectacular in it. She handles some very raw and challenging material like a seasoned pro. It's shot so you're right there, in the room, on the stage, all the time. The music is brilliant, beautifully recorded all live. Do yourself a favour and go see it.

  • Cindy Biter
    Cindy Biter Day ago

    She lost me when she started talking politics. All I want to see/ hear is her acting & singing. She's no political "expert". Shut the hell up. Loved the movie, and I'd see it again, but I could care less what she thinks politically. She's being paid to dance/ act/ sing. If you want to be political, then run for office, but don't bring it into your "art".

    They missed the mark on the remake. was mostly about the guy and not the girl. Should have called it A Star is Killed.

    • Muxe Chalcedony
      Muxe Chalcedony 20 hours ago

      Its supposed to be a contradiction. At the end of the movie a star does die but another one "Ally" was BORN in the process of tragedy and love. Hence "A Star Is Born"

    This lady is up there with the best artists of our time. She really doesn't get enough credit. Her voice is amazing, her writing is impeccable and don't let the masks and costumes fool you- she is a clever and strong woman with a work ethic that puts many to shame. Vulnerability and authenticity shine through her music and her words. I just love her, always have.

  • Mary Geyer
    Mary Geyer Day ago

    Saw the movie...Gaga does have the talent but I think she needs a bit more polish, etc. to carry an entire movie. There was something missing from both performances. Didn't quite hit the emotional high it could have. I know I will get kicked for this but I still think the J. Garland version is way better.

  • Webster Giles Smith

    She looks just like Rosanna Arquette, who is a much better actress. I am SO OVER all of this star worshipping! Bradley Cooper is NOT the greatest actor that ever lived, and GaGa is just all hype. This sycophantic star bedazzlement is just so sickening! I did like what GaGa said about the Kavanaugh investigation! RIGHT ON! Cannot wait until this movie disappears already [that is, until various awards ceremonies! UGH!] and winds up in the bargain bin box at a 7/11 in a few years. The music in this film is shit, nothing memorable AT ALL about it, unlike the Garland or Streisand version. I should know. I am a musician. Hollywood is just such hype and bullshit! Now, sashay away, LADY G!

The monsters have always been here in your corner since day 1!!!!! Those lyrics are amazing and Gaga has ans always will be deep, original, authentic and just honest. I keep writing because it gets more and more amazing!!! Gaga speaking French- I'm just... my heart... ugh...I love her!!

    RESPECT! I had, like many others - written her off as a Gimmick, and Biz Creation...but I've heard her sing, and play piano beautifully, and in this interview, she comes off as grounded, realistic, strong-willed, self-actualized, funny, and yet - humble! BRAVO!
