Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga are electric together | A Star is Born
Lady Gaga is such an enjoyment to watch in A Star is Born. Of course, she always is in whichever form she takes on. Have we learned not to be surprised by Lady Gaga anymore? To be honest, she has become a bit predictable these days. That means we can expect her to awe us every single time, whether on stage or on screen.
Lady Gaga was a bold shock 10 years ago for her rallying anthem about being Born This Way or as the meaty cocooned Fame Monster. She initially gave the impression like a Madonna wannabe, susceptible to shaking up established mores but with talent and unquestionably with a matching voice.
Then she adorned the role of this countess in the TV series American Horror Story: Hotel. Why, the Lady Gaga acts, too, and she even collected a Mini Series Golden Globe for Best Actress. Did we all know then that it will not be long before she gives a shot at the movies?
Then she got tied up singing twosomes with Tony Bennett from the Great American Songbook.
She was electrifying at the Oscars, her famous vocals in conventional mode. And that album Joanne, it was totally different from Born This Way, but it was Gaga’s finest up to that time as a singer and songwriter. In fact, she sounded like she had this natural attraction for country rock music and left her fans craving for more in the same genre.
A wink of a year or two later, Gaga is now cut her niche on the big screen in A Star is Born, singing country rockers and very much to the delight of her fans. In A Star is Born Gaga amidst the theme of country rock falls in love with a country rocking geezer who can also sing and even play the guitar and this role is being played by the Bradley Cooper. Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga are electric together.

A Star Is Born is the story of Jackson Maine, this addict of a rock star on the way down who find true love in Ally Campana, a young singer on the way up whom he has brought to the forefront. It is a cherished Hollywood cliché that has been done to iconic outcomes before. Janet Gaynor and Fredric March way back in 1937, Judy Garland and James Mason following in 1954 and Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson after 2 decades in 1976. It was Streisand who pioneered this new character which combined real actors with real singing skills.
